Who are The Firrenes?
The Firrenes (pronounced firreens, rhyming with "beans") are a melodic, song-based rock band from Edinburgh, Scotland, performing original material. The band's principal songwriter is Jules Reed (aka Julian Wagstaff), with additional contributions from Walt Cumming. The band's musical style is eclectic and varied, with influences ranging from 70's rock, Americana, blues and R&B through to indie, alt rock, art pop and classical.
The band's current lineup is: Vocals, guitar, keyboards, drums and bass.
...and currently guesting with us: Fiona Dabjen on alto sax and Luci Holland on vocals.
The Firrenes have just released their "double A-side" single featuring the original songs 'Time and Place' and 'Destitution Row', recorded at Chamber Studio, Edinburgh (June 2017), produced by Graeme Young. The band also recorded a live studio set (for video) on 10 July 2017. A selection of the resulting videos and audio tracks are now available on this website and on our YouTube channel.
Future PlansFollowing the success of our recent Edinburgh and Berlin shows (October 2017), The Firrenes are looking forward to completing our first album in summer/autumn 2018, and to performing more widely within the UK.
