We asked Arthur of the following questions.
Tell us about yourself
I’m a singer, guitarist and songwriter. I play music both as a solo artist and with various bands and genres.
Why are you involved in Scottish music?
I’ve been brought up around music with members of my family being musicians. For me, being involved in music is the only thing I’ve ever wanted to do.
Any particular career highlights?
I was chosen as one of the Danny Kyle Open Stage award winners at Celtic Connections a number of years ago. I also released a solo album featuring mostly my own songs.
What are your plans for the future?
Keep playing music and see what comes next.
