27 Jul Outwith Live – Phoenix Lane
July 2007; Colin Watson had written a few ‘tunes’ on Acoustic guitar – just to lay down a recording for posterity.
He persuaded Darryl Bailie and Robert Sclater to play bass guitar and drums and Eddie Wishart to take on the vocal. These four were soon joined by Murdo MacLeod on lead guitar and backing vocal.
The EP was completed and this inevitably focused attention to live performance.
Phoenix Lane played their first gig on October 4th 2008.
From day one Phoenix Lane have penned their own music; a blend of Classic Country Rock and Folk with, at times, a Celtic strand woven through.
Colin is the last of the original line up. He has ensured the continuity of genre and passion for writing emotive and clever songs.
Phoenix Lane have gone from strength to strength, bringing in talented musicians who have taken Phoenix Lane to it’s current melodic plateau!
The current line-up have been performing together now for 7 years or so.
Colin Watson (Acoustic Guitar, Low D Whistle, vocals) Christine Munday (Violin, Bass Guitar, backing vocal) Maxine Hemmann (Main Vocal, Keyboard), Fergus McNair (Drums / Percussion, Harmonica, Vocal) Wilson Dunlop (Lead Guitar, Vocal)
