Hailing from the Highlands of Scotland, Elephant Sessions released their new album 'What Makes You' earlier this year.Exploding onto the indie/folk scene to unparalleled effect with their previous album, 'All We Have Is Now', the band have since appeared at some of the world’s most notable venues and festivals.
‘What Makes You’ has built on this success and sees the front-line of mandolin and fiddle pushing their limits further, matching the percussive rhythm of drums, bass and guitar, whilst fusing with electronic dance beats. This is traditional music turned on its head, a reinvention of expectation, a brand new sound. It’s exciting.
2018 saw awards in abundance. Opening the year as winners of Album of the Year at the BBC Scotland Trad Awards, they went on to be finalists as Best Group at the BBC Radio 2 awards.
Belhaven Brewery got together with the band to award the first ever Belhaven Bursary for innovation in music, in recognition of their unique and outstanding sound. It was accompanied by the bands own beer ‘Elephant Sessions Ale’, which was launched in May 2018.
The band also found themselves shortlisted for Scottish Album of the Year - an award covering every genre of music.
