A young singer/songwriter from Wemyss Bay is set to release her first album in plenty of time for Christmas.

Amelia Jocelyn recently graduated from the Glasgow Academy of Music and Sound, and promises to bring traditional folk songs into the 21st century with a beautiful live sound, and gentle instrumentation.

Amelia has many influences including Jack Savoretti, Norah Jones, and Paolo Nutini, which can be heard in her first release 'I Hear Rumours', an EP of original songs.

The 22 year old has more recently been influenced by the likes of Eva Cassidy and Eddi Reader as she revisits her folk upbringing.

Her new album is entitled 'Bonnie Songs from the West Coast of Scotland' and is inspired by her local surroundings, including songs like Ae Fond Kiss by Robert Burns, Rothesay O', and Song O' The Clyde.

The album will be first insight into Amelia's folk song roots and features the songs she grew up hearing and singing.

Amelia can be heard playing venues across central Scotland and is planning to tour the UK next year, and said: "My hope is to highlight the rich musical history of the area."
