I started singing and songwriting around ten years ago, initially as part of a band. Prior to this, I wrote for another artist. I come from a long line of musicians. My dad is a composer/contemporary hymn writer.
I have played well-known Glasgow venues like King Tut’s, Stereo (supported Larkin Poe), the Tut’s stage at the Clyde Auditorium as part of the C2C Festival (Country to Country) – although I am not country my previous album had a country feel.
I have played gigs in unusual places to people on the margins of society – Barlinnie Prison in Glasgow, one of the biggest and most notorious in the UK (on several occasions); a homeless shelter in Glasgow, a space for people struggling with addictions.
I am planning gigs for 2022 now that the world is opening again.
On the song:
“I wrote ’Neverending Song’ on my piano after coming off the phone to a friend who was going through a very traumatic experience. I wrote it with him in mind but then realised it would resonate with a wider audience. I want people to know they are not alone. It sounds cliched, I know, but many people feel isolated with no one to turn to. My message is that you are valuable and there is always someone who cares.” Jill Brown
