DECLAN WELSH & THE DECADENT WEST

The world is quickly changing and Glasgow’s Declan Welsh is here to document it. A singer, poet and performer, Welsh has a keen eye for detail and a no-holds-barred attitude that feels wildly contagious. The 23-year-old is not afraid to plug into the political landscape, from songs about Spanish Republican leaders to performing in Palestine backed by a choir of refugee children. With a refreshingly diverse approach to gigging – his live appearances include T in the Park, London Fashion Week and Bethlehem Live – the future looks very bright indeed for Declan & The Decadent West.

“Punchy, poetic, passionate and profound.” – Tenement TV

HEIR OF THE CURSED

“Heir of The Cursed is a caulbearer born of an apparition, a primordial memory, a penny drop.”
A musician and songwriter whose haunting, soulful performances will absolutely astound ye, compadres!
