Live Review: Lyndsey Craig, The Hecklers and Ryan Morcombe @ Teviot Underground 19/03/15

Words: The Captain It’s a Thursday evening, it’s just past 9:15 and I’m at Teviot Underground for another one of the fabulous weekly FREE gigs. First, we are treated to the wonderful Ryan Morcombe. The stage may be small, and he may be on his own, but he takes the stage and owns it. His vocals are strong and his guitar playing impeccable. With a harmonica thrown into the mix, his music is a mixture of country mixed with a wee bit of rock and roll. Favourite Track: “Help Me Pull Through” Twitter: Soundcloud: rm Next come The Hecklers, who hail from Linlithgow. These guys rock the stage and the crowd seem to love them. Everyone is on their feet and dancing along to their sweet tunes. I can feel my own feet tapping of their own accord. These guys are definitely something to keep your eyes and ears open for. Their music is upbeat, it’s rocky, it’s jazzy, to put it simply, it’s fucking brilliant. Favourite Track: Brand New Twitter: Soundcloud: th Last, but certainly not least, the beautiful Lyndsey Craig takes to the stage. This is the first time I’ve heard her live with a full band, so I’m certainly excited. Within the first 5 seconds of the first song, I am not disappointed. The band is tight and everything fits together perfectly. The crowd is happy, the band is rocking away and Lyndsey’s beautiful vocals make it an amazing experience. About half-way through her set, the band leave the stage for a wee bit and Lyndsey plays solo. Her voice really comes out in the song “Kids” and it’s simply exquisite. At the request of the crowd, she sings “Blue Jays” the first single she released last year. The crowd go wild for this, singing along and dancing. The band then re-join her to play the last song of the night “Dynamite”, the new single being released tonight. You can buy “Dynamite” here: Twitter: lc lc2 Thursdays at Teviot Underground only have 2 shows left until they finish up foe the summer!
