and Michael Hay Nisbet.
Four Scottish singer songwriters. One tour.
Anna was raised in Glasgow but spent every summer on the Isle of Skye where her family's roots run deep. Her Highland connections had a strong influence on her from an early age: Anna learned more from the family ceildihs she attended than she ever did in school. In 2003 Anna spent a year studying at Sabhal Mor Ostaig, Scotland's Gaelic College, which cemented her love for the language.
Scottish singer songwriter, Debut Album 'Vagrant' out now!
'Vagrant' is the debut album from Oban-born musician Mike Nisbet. A Diving Bell Production, it was recorded in Glasgow in October 2010 by Marcus Mackay and will be released on (9/06/2011).
The album's ten tracks were written in the winter of 2009. After spending more than a year living between London and Glasgow so the songs are primarily to do with being on the road and basically having no home to return to. The album's completion was made possible by Creative Scotland, which provided the funding for the studio time. Nisbet's long term ambition to create a solo record that, at its heart, is one man playing directly to the listener, has been beautifully realised.

Little Fire has a gift for writing heartfelt songs and has vocal passion, power and a genuine warmth in his voice which seeps through his lyrics.
Drawing inspiration from the vocal talents of Gloria Gaynor and Stevie Nicks, and from the songwriting skills of Imogen Heap and Tori Amos, Rosie's music is at once intelligent and accessible. Rich with instantly memorable choruses and rhythmic piano grooves which belie a subtle compositional complexity seldom found in pop music, it is easy to understand why her writing has such wide ranging appeal.
