Constant Follower nominated for top Scottish music award
Following the release of their critically acclaimed debut album, Constant Follower have been nominated for Best Acoustic act for this year’s Scottish Alternative Music Awards.
Their LP ‘Neither is, nor ever was’ released on Shimmy Disc / Joyful Noise Recordings last month with Clash Magazine calling it a ‘gorgeous listen’ and The Scotsman giving it a stellar 4* review.
Growing up in a violent area of Scotland where frontman McAll was witness to a murder, the songs origins can be traced back to McAll’s long road to recovery overcoming life changing injuries while battling PTSD following a brutal attack.

Constant Follower frontman McCall, said:‘Receiving the nomination for Best Acoustic at this year’s SAMAs still seems unreal to me. This music was written alone, quietly, while my baby daughter slept though the wall, without any idea that it might reach another’s ears never mind receive so much positivity from the press or a nomination for this respected award. The satisfaction, and validation, was in completing the work, in getting it out. It’s overwhelming now, and humbling, to think there are so many ears on these songs. But if it provides comfort or solace to someone, as so much music has to me in the past, then that makes it worthwhile.’
