Upcoming NEW SINGLE and call to arms for accompanying Music video!

Thursday, February 25th, 2021

I’m delighted to announce that I’m currently working on a new single (more details in the link below).
Despite the current complexities of everyday life that is 2021 we are working hard to get single out as soon as feasibly possible.

The intention is to bring the single out complete with a wonderful accompanying music video by Aberdeen based filmmaker.

In order to make this intention a reality, I truly need YOUR help in funding this process.
I have created a GoFundMe page (link below) and I come to you cap n’ hand that you may help realise this vision.

Thank you kindly

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!”

Cover Art for New SINGLE…

Wednesday, August 19th, 2020

…i thought I’d share with you the story behind the cover art for upcoming single ‘Where The Ships Go To Die’.

I found this wonderful photograph attributed with an online article (the economist) on ship dismantling in Bangladesh. The picture was everything I had been looking for in terms of the mood of the song. We tracked down and contacted Bangladeshi based photographer Saiful Huq Omi/Counter Foto to seek permission, which he duly granted. Saiful’s work has been displayed in the following publications (New York Time’s, Time Magazine, Newsweek, The Economist and the BBC to name but a few).

After we had the photograph we sent it over to New York based graphics designer Scott Braun (who we’d already hired to work on a new logo) and he did a fantastic job putting the artwork together . Scott also has long list of established clients on his resume / cv!

Massive thanks to both gentlemen for their talents and wonderful contribution to the project. The single is due out on the 28th August 2020, pre-save link: https://ingroov.es/where-the-ships-go-to
