The Deadly Winters are a Scottish band of brothers on a journey. The journey has seen the band create of some of the most wonderfully heartfelt and emotive story-based music around today.
They released their debut album in April 2011 and tracks have already received play on BBC Radio 1’s Introducing in Scotland, Jim Gellatly's Weekly Podcast, Amazing Radio, Get Ready To Rock Radio, Gill Mills New Music Matters and numerous internet stations and Podcasts.
Presented in a thought-provokingly descriptive, and subtle manner, The Deadly Winters re-define the term 'folk-rock', and take us on musical travels through tales of love, pain, sorrow, joy and friendship, and show us all that sometimes, even whispers can deafen.
The Deadly Winters implore everyone and anyone to join them in the ongoing adventure of creating beautiful music, and wonderful stories, for a world that badly needs a wee pick-me-up.
"The divine sound of The Deadly Winters. A sing-a-long song if there every was one"
Jim Gellatly (Voice of New Music in Scotland - In:Demand Uncut, Amazing Radio, Scottish Sun, Jim Gellatly's NEW MUSIC Podcast)
"Melodic and evocative of a warm winter room at dusk for some reason, the chorus will put you in mind of an acoustic Dexys whilst the melody lines will call to mind an early Badly Drawn Boy."
Gill Mills (Amazing Radio, Radio 1, NME, Best of Myspace, New Music Matters)
