A review of Sienna, at amaSing on Sunday 1st September, 2013.

Sienna 1

Travelling all the way from Kinross, Sienna hit the stage in fearless mode and made quite an impact. Energy and presence aplenty, despite being a man down they wowed the audience with an energised set that coalesced around folk rock influences tinged with some Americana.

An acoustic bias with a strong vocal performance they were, for an audience this far north, one of the finds of this festival and testimony as to why amaSing has been so important.

I’m guessing these guys made more than a few friends and connections and surely must be due an invite for a return visit to the area – and the sooner the better. Well worth catching live and their EP is certainly worth checking out.

Life-long engagement with music and a truly eclectic taste (although prog-rock and metal will usually have me scrambling for the off button). If pushed, I would have to say the Velvet Underground are one of the most important band’s of all time. Although I consider myself first and foremost a photographer, as regards reviewing I guess I cut my teeth in the vibrant fanzine scene of the 80’s. Around the same time I started taking photographs and, to be brief, performance and photography were made for each other: perfect match.
