Emerging from vast Scottish landscapes with folk-roots connecting him to this wild country, comes the gravel-tinged vocals of Ben Sunderland, aka Bunderland.
With a youth spent listening to the traditional sounds of fiddle and pipe music, shared storytelling was an integral part of his younger years where the myths and legends, fused together with this music, would be brought to life in these songs.
Taking his heritage with him, Ben Sunderland moved to Edinburgh and began to see the elements of this music crystallise into something of his own interpretation. It wasn’t long before he formed a band called Chasing Owls and began touring, playing at Glastonbury and performing together for over four years.
With a desire to explore his songwriting further, Ben Sunderland decided to start up a solo project so that he can delve into the freedom and vulnerability that comes with writing and performing as an individual.
In March this year Bunderland released his first 5-track EP which, showcasing perfectly his ability to write with an understated beauty, has set him up on a new and progressive track.
Taken from this EP comes today’s song which appears as a hidden/bonus track and can be found and purchased here

It’s always exciting to follow a new project from the early days to see it grow and to support its progress, this young artist has much to explore so it is good to be here doing it with him…
