Ewan Macintyre at the Guesthouse

Ewan Macintyre releases his debut solo EP ‘You Probably Look Better Naked Anyway” on alongside Eastern and Maritime Canadian tour dates this Spring/ Summer 2016.

The 5 track EP, which was recorded in Montreal, reached #3 in the National Folk/ Roots charts of Canada. Named after some infamous graffiti outside Montreal’s ‘Eva B’s’ vintage clothing store, ‘You probably look better naked anyway’ is a collection of songs written while Ewan was on a year of self discovery and adventure, hitch hiking around Canada’s East coast and during an idyllic/ chilly spell staying in a shack in the woods outside Wakefield, QC. A talented musician and songwriter, Ewan attracted a diverse array of 10 fine musicians to feature on the album from France, Quebec, Ireland/ South Africa, Scotland, England and Ontario.

Ewan Macintyre has a long musical pedigree – as lead singer with the award-winning Edinburgh collective Southern Tenant Folk Union he performed the length and breadth of the UK and Ireland at top venues & major festivals including Celtic Connections and Electric Picnic and in 2011 the band won Americana Artist of the Year. He recorded 2 critically acclaimed albums with the band, receiving stellar reviews from Mojo, Q, The Guardian, Irish Times, Uncut, Irish Mail on Sunday, Hot Press as well as live TV performances on RTE’s ‘The Late Late Show’ & ‘The View’.

Combining traditional Scottish & Irish folk alongside jazz, swing and soul, Ewan is completely at home onstage having performed in theatre and music productions since the age of 5. During the live shows on the forthcoming Irish tour, Ewan will weave his own blend of heartfelt ballads, melodies and extended jams, sung in a rich Scots/ Canadian brogue with some lively banter with the audience – who knows who might join him onstage for an impromptu session!
