Shan Fabulist – A Belated EP Launch Gig!
Shan Fabulist: A singer-songwriter based in Edinburgh, Scotland. Shan started learning the piano at the age of 7, but shortly thereafter stopped taking lessons because he was “quite rubbish”. By the time he decided to write his first song 20 years later, Shan had settled on the guitar as his instrument of choice because it was “much easier”. In 2018, Shan wrote and recorded his debut musical release, a concept EP, entitled ‘V’ which explores themes relating to mental health and the impact of mental illness on relationships. ‘V’ was released on 06/12/2018 and received generally favourable reviews from Shan’s friends and family, “I’m probably a bit biased but think it sounds fab.” – Shan’s Mum.
Spooky Books: Layering arcane fingerstyle guitar below beautifully personal, yet catchy and uplifting melody lines. Spooky Books find a sonic space of his own, reminiscent of Ben Howard with the attitude of The Menzingers.
Jake Poynter: Commonly mistaken for a professional model because of his dashing good looks, Jake is actually a professional musician! He is a veteran of the Edinburgh music scene, playing in several bands through the years including Hold The Suspect, Scotia, and many more! Jake’s band credentials certainly show he’s a team player but for this gig he’s flying solo! We’ll see if he lives up to his CV – “I work well independantly or as part of a team!”Buy Tickets
