Alyth McCormack is one of the most exciting singers on the Celtic scene. Her vocal talent and understated approach give her an ability to cross over diverse singing styles making her comfortable performing with a variety of artists. Born and raised on the Island of Lewis off the north west coast of Scotland, Alyth was given the opportunity to perform since she was a child and after leaving the Island for the bright lights of the big city, she honed her singing and drama skills at RSAMD in Glasgow, before recording her debut, The Edge. Alyth’s band features names such as Aidan O’Rourke (Lau) and Ewen Vernal (Capercaille). Boo Hewerdine’s “A Smuggler’s Prayer” about the plight of drug mules is particularly moving. Title track “People Like Me” is a heartfelt plea for tolerance in today’s Scotland, penned by Del Amitri’s Justin Currie. Compellingly catchy even on first hearing, it provides a stirring end to the record.
