Elephant Sessions, who hail from the Highlands of Scotland have exploded onto the indie folk scene with unparalleled effect.
The release of their album All We Have is Now in 2017, was followed by live appearances at some of the world’s most notable festivals. The Mercury nominated Alt J, along with BBC Radio 6, found themselves converted to the band’s unique brand of indie folk.
Opening 2018 as winners of 'Album of the Year' at the BBC Scotland Trad Awards, they went on to be finalists as 'Best Group' at the BBC Radio 2 Awards. In May 2018, Belhaven Brewery awarded the band the first ever Belhaven Bursary for innovation in music. The bursary amount matches the Mercury Music Prize and was awarded in recognition of their unique and outstanding sound, and was also accompanied by the band's favourite beer Elephant Sessions IPA. In August 2018, the band found themselves shortlisted for 'Scottish Album of the Year' – an award covering every genre of music from indie, blues and rock to pop and folk.
Currently finalising their third album due for release in March 2019, the band return to Music Room in May as part of their UK album tour.
"The versatility of Elephant Sessions is its strength. Passionate about their culture and their origins, these Scots are using their instruments like weapons to destroy clichés...we love them".
