The talkaboutpopmusic.net tour is well under way and I have already discovered a brilliant new artist. Siobhan Wilson is a singer songwriter based in Glasgow and originally from Elgin. She cites Nina Simone, John Martyn and Perfume Genuis among her influences.
She was supporting Tom Odell as part of the True North Music festival in Aberdeen and if you follow this blog you will know I’ve not reviewed Tom’s performance as of yet…simply because I had too many large glasses of wine and can’t really remember it all – which I am kind of gutted about but I’m sure I really enjoyed it at the time so here’s someone else’s review of Tom Odell.
However, I do remember the supporting artist – Siobhan Wilson. The first thing I thought about her was “wow, that’s a sparkly top” and it was, very! It wasn’t just my drunken haze – it shimmered to the max. Her music is very folky and quite mellow but a song called “All Dressed Up” really stood out for me.
She also performed a cover of one of my favourite songs “Somewhere In My Heart“. Listen to her perform it from earlier in the year.
Siobhan’s album, Glorified Demons, is available on Spotify and I have been listening to it a lot and hope to catch her live again sometime soon!
I also want to find out where she got that very sparkly top and if she has any photos that I can use to show just how sparkly it was. Thanks Siobhan and good luck for the future.

Finally – a big thanks to the organisers of the True North Festival – Aberdeen needs more of this type of thing!
