Sivu and Paul Thomas Saunders will be heading out to Inverness, Ullapool, Stornoway and Aviemore in August, 2014.

Sivu (aka James Page) has been described as creating “Effortlessly instant pop songs, laced with sentiment and bright ideas” by This is Fake DIY which has earned him the title of being one of the country’s finest new singer-songwriters.

‘Better Than He’, his debut single, caught the attention of YouTube viewers for the innovative video which saw Sivu being flmed withing an MRI scanner while he sang (see it below, it truly is enchanting).

He follows up the release of EPs, ‘Bodies’ and ‘I Lost Myself’ with his debut album, which he is currently on with Alt-J’s producer and previous collaborator,Charlie Andrew.

His co-headliner for the tour is Leeds based Paul Thomas Saunders, described simply as “Peerless” by Clash he notes influences such as Serge Gainsbourg, Spiritualized and Leonard Cohen.

According to his biography he “encapsulates both the psychedelic soundscape and intellectual sentimentality that the sixties graced us with, then wraps it up in a spiraling contemporary shell”.The formerly classically trained choirboy has supported Frightened Rabbit, Julia Stone and The Staves.

A lifelong passion for music matched with a geeky fascination for social media and websites resulted in the creation of Inverness Gigs back in 2010. The aim of the site is to help promote, support and generally raise awareness of the local music scene.In fairness fifteen years of being a psychiatric nurse never prepared me for the experiences that we have had over the last few years and the evolution of Inverness Gigs has certainly been a steep learning curve.I currently write (less and less), edit and co-ordinate most of the Inverness Gigs activities.Occasionally seen on Twitter, and  LinkedIn, if you want get in touch you can contact me direct at chris@igi.gs
