The final contestants for the inaugural BBC Radio Scotland Singer/Songwriter award have been revealed – and Aberdeen’s own Scott Wallace is in the mix.
Having been shortlisted, he came through a keenly contested public vote to make the final four.
The 21-year-old, who released his debut EP Here Goes Nothing last year, had his track Anything For You played on BBC Radio Scotland throughout the voting period, which ended on Friday 13.
An exciting live final – with singer/songwriters Fran Healy, Horse McDonald and Karine Polwart, promoter Geoff Ellis and music industry executive Dee Bahl on the judging panel – will now take place in Glasgow on September 26.
Ahead of the final, the four contestants will be mentored by songwriter and producer, Davie Scott, lead vocalist with The Pearlfishers, and a leading light in the University of West Scotland’s Masters in Songwriting course.
Sharon Mair, executive producer with BBC Scotland, said: “The quality of the musicianship from all ten of those who were shortlisted has been exceptional.
“The audience have been enjoying their work over the last two weeks and they’ve chosen four superb talents.”
The winner of the event will go on to play the King Tut’s stage at the TRNSMT festival and will also enjoy a recording session with BBC Scotland in Glasgow.
Mr Wallace said: “I am proud to represent the place where I was raised, attended school and continue to live.”
