Scott Wood Band - Upsurge

Upsurge was recorded in February 2015 during a residential 5 days at Castlesound Studios, Scotland. Containing primarily their own Scottish styled compositions, influences of Jazz, Pop, Rock and World can be identified throughout, and a new sound for the bagpipes has been identified. The record was produced alongside Calum MacCrimmon (Breabach and Man’s Ruin), who insisted to record the performances in a live setting, to capture the energy and vibe of the band. Virtuoso Electric Guitarist Davie Dunsmuir lay down a face-melting solo on the track ‘McCready’s’, and a string quartet of Classical/Folk musicians enriched 3 tracks on the album. Scott travelled to Ann Arbor, Michigan to witness the record be mixed by one of his biggest idols and sonic mastermind Tyler Duncan (the olllam, Ella Riot).
