22 year old Amelia Jocelyn is a singer songwriter from the west coast of Scotland near Glasgow. She has recently released her debut album, 'Bonnie Songs from the West of Scotland. Inspired by her local surroundings, the album is a tribute to the local area featuring songs like Ae Fond Kiss by Robert Burns, Rothesay O' and Song O' the Clyde.
The album is a first insight into Amelia's folk roots and features songs she grew up hearing and singing. She has captivated the essence of these traditional folk songs and brought them into the twenty-first century with a beautiful live sound and gentle instrumentation. The songs perfectly showcase her soft voice and a stunning musical performance from her and her band. The album was successfully launched on the 2nd of December at The Sangha House, Taunton to a sold-out show and is currently available from our online store or for download at iTunes.com.
Amelia has many influences including Norah Jones, Paolo Nutini and Jack Savoretti which can be heard in her first release 'I Hear Rumours', an EP of original songs. She has more recently been influenced by the likes of Eva Cassidy and Eddi Reader as she revisits into her folk upbringing.
Described as the 'folk star of tomorrow' by the Somerset Gazette, Amelia Jocelyn has performed at various venues across the UK including The Classic Grand, Glasgow and The Beacon Theatre, Greenock. One particular highlight of this year was her recent performance on STV's 'Live at 7.30' show. Amelia is planning a tour across the UK next year. Find her upcoming gigs and news here.
