Jamie Flett self-released his first album ‘Cold But Bright’ in October 2009 at a packed launch night in Glasgow and was on the bill at the City Halls for an evening with ‘Three Of The Best’ emerging songwriters in December. He started 2010 being chosen as one of the two runners-up at Glasgow live music institution King Tut’s ‘YourSound’ industry event for new music and bands and took part in the heats for the Liverpool ‘Sound City’ festival at the O2 Academy.

Throughout that year there were slots at the West End and South Side Festivals, the Fete de la Musique festival and shows in Nice n Sleazy’s and Stereo in Glasgow. He also appeared on local radio stations Pulse Radio and Celtic Music Radio.

2011 saw Jamie returning to these venues and playing on the Danny Kyle stage at Celtic Connections as well as at various charity fundraising events although much of his time was spent recording material for a new album that will be released imminently. Meanwhile he managed to squeeze in some cameos regularly guesting on bass for the ‘Ballachulish Hellhounds’ and playing guitar and other instruments for ‘SafetyNett.’ "Andrew Brand is a 19 year old acoustic singer/songwriter from Aberdeen, Scotland.
