The Winter Tradition.....


In keeping with the tsunami of great music flooding out of Scotland just now The Winter Tradition will be one of 2013's must have, must listen to bands. Their debut album 'Gradients'  released earlier this year has gained much radio time, both local and national, including big Jim Gellately's In Demand podcast.




The Winter Tradition are Ewan Simpson (vocals, bass and synth), Mark Morrow (guitar and vocals), Stephen Furbank (guitar, vocals and keyboard) and Callam Moua (drums and Precussion).  Their latest musical taster is the thoughtful and melodious 'Tides and Telegrams' with accompanying poignant video by Shootback Productions which features the band and the lovely Karen Fishwick.






WinterTraditionA favourite of mine is the bouncier 'Firelight' which has a 'get the fans jumping, festival anthem' feel to it with it's slightly Big Country-esqe guitar riffage and punchier vocals.








They've got two shows upcoming before the turn of the year with Flood of Red.....get in there for tickets, they'll be immense!
