Ralph's Life Rethink gig in Electric Circus

After the success of the Ralph's Life CD Launch Party for The Fine Line Project and Rethink Mental Illness in London's iconic Proud Camden it's time to head North to Edinburgh for the Scottish Launch Party in the Electric Circus. Headlining the event on the 30th April and with a track on the Ralph's Life CD for Rethink is Edinburgh's Steve Heron, with support on the night from fellow local bands Universal Thee and The Phantoms.

Tickets are priced at just £4 in advance by clicking on this link and and on the night will be £5 on the door, with all proceeds again going to the charity Rethink Mental Illness. It'll be a great nights live music and a chance to help raise awareness for mental health issues in Scotland and beyond.

Steve Heron put out his first album late in 2010 followed by the acquisition of a band and the release of the critically acclaimed 'Domino Mask' EP. Steve has blossomed into a major force on not only the Edinburgh Indie music scene but, following in the footsteps of some of the acts he has played alongside (OK Social Club, Stanley Odd and the seemingly always in the US, Admiral Fallow) he's becoming firmly established as a must see Scotland-wide. His track Eleanor was one of the first donated to the Ralph's Life CD for Rethink Mental Illness back in November 2013.

Universal Thee are an Edinburgh five piece comprising of James Russell (guitar and vocals), the recently added (ex-Caravan Club) Lisa Russell (vocals) Robin Spivey (guitar) Sean Macdonald (bass) and Kevin Haddow (drummer) are known for their infectious hooks and uptempo songs and they're no strangers to the Electric Circus where they launched their single 'Tiger Tiger'.

The Phantoms are Colin Simpson on Vocals and Rhythm Guitar, Colin McKillop on Lead Guitar, Peter Stewart on Bass and Backing Vocals with Brad Young on Drums. Beginning with local gigs in their home town of Broxburn, and branching out into Edinburgh and Glasgow, landing gigs at venues such as Cab Vol, The Electric Circus, The Liquid Rooms, Maggie Mays, Sneaky Petes and Pivo Pivo.
