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’.

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.
My brand new single Merry Go Round is now available to download. The lead off track from my brand new studio album ‘The Never Ending Pageant’ (album due out 21st July) has been released as a world wide digital release through Aberdeen based record label Fat Hippy Records.
My new studio album ‘The Never Ending Pageant’ will be released on the 21st July 2014. I’m delighted to announce that the record will be released through Scottish record label ‘Fat Hippy records’ and will be promoted in conjunction with the good folks at Quite Great PR.
More announcements to come very soon with regards to single etc!
My new album ‘The Never Ending Pageant’ is finally finished. After recording the main bulk of the tracks last year at Analog Chew Studio in Santee, CA, I recently returned to California to mix and master it at the legendary Hyde Street studios in San Francisco.
Once again, my good friend, mentor and Grammy Award Winning Engineer Alan Sanderson was in the main production chair. There was also some additional work undertaken by world renowned Producer & Engineer Ken Allardyce at his studio in Nairn, Scotland.
At the moment I don’t have a release date set in the place as I work on a few things in the background before hand. I also hope to have a video teaser (from San Diego film maker Craig Rian) up on-line soon with regards to it. WATCH THIS SPACE!
Thanks kindly for all your continued support and patience.
I’m delighted to be opening the stage for International touring artist and fellow Scottish performer Dave Arcari at The Lemon Tree, this coming Saturday (22nd Feb). Doors at 7pm ish and first act on at 730(ish).
