"The best Scottish unsigned band I have ever came across" – Elaine Lamb of Oban FM
"Sianar show that Scotland can produce smooth rock to rival the US" – John Fell of Camglen Radio
A chance meeting on a Facebook music gear buying and selling page paired together guitarist Kristian Clezy and accomplished singer songwriter James McKay on his return from a recent tour of the US.
Lace it with some low frequency magic from from Crawford Dow who answered an advert, again on Facebook, and then add in the raw talent of recently graduated music students Martin Wardlaw and Duncan McGregor, and the melting pot of talent is almost complete. The metronomic experience of Gavin Mills on guitar seals the bond on the group of 6 brothers that have become Sianar.
Fast forward over a year, and the band have headlined three dynamite sell out shows at Glasgow’s Classic Grand, and Oran Mor and the o2 ABC. More recently in January, Sianar played at the iconic King Tuts Wah Wah Hut, for some of the band was the first time.
March 2017 also saw the release of their epic debut EP ‘Cause & Effect’, produced by legendary Scottish producer Sandy Jones at the Foundry Music Lab in Motherwell.
The band are very proud to present a showcase of their original music, which oozes energy in a modern guitar rock style, and is a fitting testament to the high level of musicianship and song writing hailing from Scotland’s central belt.
You may not have heard the name Sianar as yet, but 2018 is set to change that.
