John Douglas of Trashcan Sinatras

Following up from a busy and successful year of music prowess, involving the reissue and UK Top-40 charting of Trashcan Sinatras’ debut album ‘Cake’, 33 years since its original release, John Douglas has stepped into the center stage, releasing his debut solo album supported by a run of concerts around the UK and North America.

One of Scotland’s finest songwriters, and a founding member of Trashcan Sinatras, Douglas has opened a new chapter in his life with the release of his eponymous debut album, via Reveal Records. Presenting an intimate snapshot of the talent, charisma and depth of this celebrated songsmith. The album was recorded live at Kyoti Studio in Glasgow with producer Mark Freegard (New Model Army, Lush, The Breeders, Del Amitri, Marillion).

Featuring original material and new recordings of John’s favourite Trashcan Sinatras’ catalogue, and his own rendition of the Prefab Sprout classic ‘We Let The Stars Go’, this album reflects the genuineness of Douglas’ music, also demonstrated in recent live peformance videos for ‘Lost’, ‘I’m Not The Fella’ and ‘Always’, plus Trashcan Sinatras’ classics ‘Oranges & Apples’, ‘Leave Me Alone’ and ‘Weightlifting’.

Performing as a solo artist and also as part of his partner Eddi Reader’s band, John has been on the road a lot lately in the UK and Ireland, having also performed with friends like Norman Blake (Teenage Fanclub), Jill Jackson, Withered Hand and James Grant (Love & Money) and Martin McAloon (Prefab Sprout).

John’s decades of music as a vital member of Trashcan Sinatras, and now also a solo performer are based around an unwavering love for stories, for creating moments, and diving into a need for human connection that only happens through the power of songs. From living room shows, to clubs and small theatres, from festivals, to large events, you will always find John connecting with his fans, old and new, and making a difference with his music.

With Support from Lauren Calve.
