27-year-old Edinburgh-born singer/songwriter Adam Holmes is one of the brightest rising stars on the UK roots music scene, with influences from either side of the Atlantic mixing traditional and contemporary folk with his own brand of soul and Americana.

His first album, Heirs and Graces, was produced by John Wood (producer of all Nick Drake’s albums and John Martyn’s iconic Solid Air album) and mastered by Simon Heyworth (co-producer of Mike Oldfield’s Tubular Bells) and second album, Brighter Still, features two-time BRIT award winner Eddi Reader on backing vocals throughout.

Latest album Midnight Milk was recorded in one room in his Edinburgh flat, but came complete with full brass section, an eighteen voice choir and a widescreen folk/soul/electronica production, which was influenced by a 2016 collaboration he was involved in with Adrian Utley of Portishead, Dominic Aitchison of Mogwai and Martin Green of Lau.

Heidi has been nominated for folk singer of the year and best traditional song by BBC Radio 2, best live act by the Scottish traditional music awards and best female vocalist at The Irish Music Awards.

She has shared the stage and recorded with Eddi Reader, Idlewild, Mark Knopfler, King Creosote, Tim O’Brien and Jerry Douglas.

Radio and Television appearances include BBC Radio 2’s loose ends, Bob Harris, Janice Long, Good Morning Sunday and RTE’s Late Late show in Ireland, CBS This Morning, NBC, and Imus in the Morning, PBS and National Public Radio in the United States.

Heidi recorded her new album Here We Go 1, 2, 3 in the studio in the Bothy neighbouring her house, built in 1779 and set in the heart of the Scottish Borders. The studio was designed by legendary record producer & studio designer Calum Malcolm. Heidi’s new record Here We Go 1, 2, 3 was released on Navigator Records September 2016.
