GUS Harrower is a talented 17-year-old singer/songwriter from Edinburgh, who we first encountered in September via youth music touring project Hit The Road.

Self-released in June, his debut EP Mystery has generated praise from tastemakers like Amazing Radio’s Jim Gellatly and podcast/blog outlet Scottish Fiction. It also contributed to Harrower deservedly ending the year on numerous 2016 “ones to watch” lists.

His new single, Girl I Didn’t Know, released last month, showcases his knack for crafting an infectious pop gem. With piano and guitar backing and catchy singalong chorus, the song signals the beginning of a promising music career. Catch him live on 17 January as part of the Celtic Connections Hazy Recollections night at ABC in Glasgow. Listen to Girl I Didn’t Know at
