Firstly, this is indeed shameless self-promotion. Fake Gods is indeed my own band.

Who are Fake Gods?
Fake Gods is an acoustic folk-rock duo from central Scotland, formed in 2005. The band’s warm and natural sound is a product of an organic music making progress which has been honed over several years.
“We aim to soak up the best of our influences and to avoid being derivative. We intend to stay the distance and create records that people revisit time and again”.
The band’s first gigs in 2005 were very well-received and subsequent shows have garnered similar acclaim. After writing songs through much of 2006, the band convened at a church hall in 2007 to lay the foundations for its debut album, the aptly titled ‘Wine To Water’. Songs therein range from the poignant, reflective ‘Shattered’ and ‘Wine To Water’ to the quirky, angst-fuelled ‘The 28’.
