    As
    an emerging professional musician, Aberdeen born Wilson Noble is
    currently studying a BA(Hons) Applied Music degree, as well as bringing
    together and preparing his catalogue of Singer-Songwriter material ready
    for independent release.

    With seventeen years
    performance experience, three recorded studio albums under his belt, and
    after a break in performing, Wilson is looking forward to sharing his
    music and getting back on stage to perform once again.

    Highlights

    degree, the release of his first single and music video 'Heartspace',
    followed by more releases from his catalogue later in the year.

    Wilson's
    music has strong influences in Rock, Folk and Roots, and blends these
    sounds to create an original mix of fresh Scottish Singer-Songwriter
    material.

    Album Leaf from UWS


    Singing
    under the name Album Leaf, Christy Ringrose is a Scottish-Norwegian
    singer-songwriter. Her upbringing in Norway left her with a deep love of
    nature and a passion for languages. When studying Linguistics at The
    University of Edinburgh, a chance encounter with an author in a park who
    noticed her voice drove her to write her first song. Christy has a
    unique style, with most of her songs being upbeat with a sense of
    childlike innocence. Her music is versatile and she likes to include
    many instruments with a focus on guitar and piano. Her lyrics explore
    many different themes through the use of artistic imagery and narrative.
    Her songs, though soulful are often lighthearted and comical. For
    example “Postman Pat” balances a familiar story with deeper and more
    impactful themes. Some of her music is influenced by current affairs and
    social issues such as the Amnesty Campaign-song “Open to Syria” and her
    song for Dimentia Carer Voices, “Romeo and Juliet”. She is completing a
    Masters in songwriting at The University of the West of Scotland, and
    hopes that her music will encourage a childlike questioning and
    exploration of the world that everyone can enjoy.
