Edgar Allan Poets – Single Review

Tuesday, November 17th, 2020

Thank you to Edgar Allan Poets for their kind review on my new single:


“Clyne’s music immediately reminds you of Bob Dylan, fantastic lyrics and folk sounds.
The Production is of the highest level and you feel like listening to the artist live, near a fire at sunset.
The melodies and the amalgam of sounds make you immediately dream of the Scottish Highlands where William Wallace once fought and lived.
I got thirsty listening to Clyne’s music, beer and especially whisky are the best company while listening to these wonderful songs.
His kind of music varies between alternative, folk, country and rock and each song can surprise you by adding a new element.
We are talking about a musician of the highest level, you can tell by the quality of the chords progression and the sound quality of his albums.
Fantastic discovery that we must suggest to all of you!”

Stonehaven Radio Station P&J piece

Tuesday, June 30th, 2020

The Press and Journal’s Scott Begbie has done a historical piece on Stonehaven’s old Ship to Shore Radio Station from it’s role in World War 2 and the Piper Alpha tragedy. He spoke with some of the folk that used to work there as a working ship to shore radio station, including my Uncle Gordon Reid and Ally Taylor.

He also talks about it’s future as a brewery for Six Degrees North Brewery in Stonehaven.

I was interviewed for my input on my 2010 song ‘Stonehaven Radio Station and Me’ and touched on my upcoming (comeback) single ‘Where The Ships Go To Die’.

Please give it a read. It’s a wonderful piece.

Thanks
Colin x

The Daily Country review – The Never Ending Pageant

Thursday, July 3rd, 2014

A lovely review that appeared on The Daily Country for my unreleased record ‘The Never Ending Pageant’.

http://thedailycountry.com/6/post/2014/06/album-review-colin-clyne-the-never-ending-pageant.html

Album Review Colin Clyne ‘The Never Ending Pageant’

Scottish born folk singer-songwriter Colin Clyne, is set to release his new album The Never Ending Pageant on Fat Hippy Records on July 21st. The album, produced & engineered by Grammy Award Winning Engineer Alan Sanderson (The Rolling Stones, Burt Bacharach), is a delightful slice of folk and Americana by way of Scotland.

Colin, who was crowned ‘Best Acoustic Act’ at the San Diego Music Awards in 2011 and 2012 (previous winners include Jason Mraz and Jewel) is an artist who is equally comfortable with upbeat folk tunes (“Toast The Happy Times”) as well as songs more melancholy (“Dunnotar Skies”). The lead off track, “Merry Go Round,” as well as “I’d Rather Do,” are pure goodness; they will instantly hook you with their melodies and subtle harmonies. All eleven tracks are well written and touch on themes universal and relatable (love, moving on after a relationship has ended and enjoying life).

And, if you are a lover of the harmonica (and who isn’t?), you will be thrilled to know the expressive instrument is well represented here on multiple songs including “Top Of The Mountain,” “Sizzle Not The Steak,” “Playing God” and the title track.

Colin Clyne has made an album that, whether you are in Scotland or the States, you will want to seek out and give a listen.
