Up and coming releases
Gus has been busy in the studio recording songs for his debut solo album, due for release in 2015. He has currently recorded his first single "Skye to Glasgow" and has also been busy filming a video to accompany the song.
Skye to Glasgow
"Skye to Glasgow" is a Scottish folk blues song written by Glasgow singer songwriter Gus Munro. It tells the story of growing up in Glasgow and family connections to the Isle of Skye.
The choice and variety of musical instruments really helps to create the perfect backdrop for this lyrical tale. A prominent melody on the highland bagpipes introduces the song with intent, before making way for an acoustic guitar with a foot tapping percussive beat.
The lead vocal gradually builds in intensity with the music and when the slide guitar is introduced accompanied by tribal drumbeat, the song really springs to life. As it builds to a final crescendo, the chorus is boosted by the accompaniment of an uplifting solo on the highland bagpipes. Backing vocals sing in excitement "I’m coming home", as the song reaches a euphoric end to bring this song to its conclusion.
Listening to Skye to Glasgow gives you the feeling of identity. If home is where the heart is, then this heart belongs to Glasgow.
