HALCYON are musicians/producers Barry Reid, John Somerville and Adam Sutherland. Packing a big punch with a mix of Electro/Techno/Big beat sounds alongside live instrumentation, vocal samples and bundles of raw energy. Chunky bass lines and beats, cutting edge programming and arrangements laced with fiddle, accordion, synths and guitar are the epitome of the Halcyon sound, forging musical arrangements and sculpting sounds that not only fill the dance floor but draw the listener in.
Several of the tracks feature sampling from the vocalists the band most wanted to work with – among others the stunning voices of Laki Mera’s Laura Donnelly and queen of Glasgow Bluegrass Laura-Beth Salter. Launched at legendary Glasgow nightclub The Arches in January 2012 the band goes from strength to strength having already played alongside established acts such as superstar DJ Mylo and Paris’ underground sonic artist Chapallier Fou. Currently busy working on album number one, 2014 will be a defining year for this pioneering outfit.
