Bio

Raised in the working class town of Cessnock, NSW with a Celtic heritage, Kieran Glasgow comes with an honest and down to earth approach to his music. Born of the alternate country music scene, Kieran’s sound and song writing is a mature fusion of country roots, folk and blues music. Influenced by Jeff Lang, Paul Kelly, Ryan Adams, and Harry Manx, Kieran combines acoustic guitar, foot percussion and lapsteel guitars with a wonderful voice to create his live sound. Glasgow’s latest solo album is “Harvesting Time”. His songwriting and performance is always engaging and this album is no exception. Kieran’s previous EP “Broad” was released in 2007 with the single and video clip “Wasn’t Just The Drugs” receiving radio airplay, programming on the ABC’s Rage. It was also added to SBA Music’s “Indignation” compilation and Nightlife’s video distribution. He was a featured vocalist on the Australian feature film “Em 4 Jay” directed by Alkinos Tsilimidos and was also producer/project leader of a compilation CD entitled “Blossom” of poetry, songs and storytelling with disadvantaged people. Kieran plays regular original gigs in and around Sydney at venues including the Sando Newtown, The Old Fitzroy Hotel and The Basement. In 08, 09 and 2010 Kieran toured extensively around Australia. Gigs included 2009 including the 2009 Adelaide Fringe Festival, Tamworth Country Music Festival, 2009 Queenscliff Festival and the 2008 Yackandandah Folk Festival. Kieran's album Harvesting Time can be purchased at all live gigs, through his website www.kieranglasgow.com and the album is available for digital download through itunes now.

Great little swinger of a number. He's got a train backing him and the engineer is hanging out the window playing the accordian while he is not shoveling coal. Great voice, rounded mellow yet can run up the higher parts of the range while keeping it sounding strong and steady. Makes me kind of wish i had of taken those line dancing lessons at the Warragul scout hall. Maybe thats what the song is about.
