BETH MALCOLM (UK)
Country: Scotland (UK)
Genre: Singer/Songwriter, folksy
Beth Malcolm is a 21-year-old Singer/Songwriter from Scotland, currently based in Glasgow. Following several years developing her songwriting, keyboard playing and performing in the UK and Germany, and at festivals such as Celtic Connections and the Country2Country festival in London, Beth released her debut EP ‘Better By Noon’ in 2015. The EP is a self-penned eclectic mix of soft jazz and folksy pop that has become Beth’s distinctive sound.
“Beth’s debut E.P. Better By Noon is a really assured release, with a strong set of songs that benefit from great arrangements and deft performances from the musicians she recorded with.” Colin McSloy, Small City Big Personality
Beth met Fat-Suit guitarist Dorian Cloudsley while they were both performing at the Danny Kyle Open Stage at Celtic Connections in 2017, and they have been writing and performing together ever since. Supporting the likes of Blue Rose Code among others across Scotland, the pair are set to release their first EP together in Spring 2019.
“For the first guest appearance of the night, Ross Wilson warmly welcomed the young Glasgow-based singer-songwriter, Beth Malcolm, to the stage. Ross had been so impressed by an online video of Beth…that he invited her to sing as part of his show. This was the cue for a polished and quietly impassioned performance from Beth…” FATEA
Natively a ‘Jazzer’, Cloudsley brings sensitive and energetic guitar accompaniment to Beth’s folk-influenced keys and voice. Together they deliver captivating sets, with an energetic repertoire of songs, most of which are written in and around Glasgow, the city that has become Beth’s lyrical muse.
Here's a wee snippet of me practicing the last song of mine for the new EP. Hope you likey and stay chooned because choons are on the way 🙂
