Angus Munro is a piano singer-songwriter born in London, raised on the mean streets of Crieff and thrown out into the harsh wilderness of Glasgow where he makes his home.

Influences include Ben Folds, The Divine Comedy, Ron Sexsmith, Rufus Wainwright, Ed Harcourt and Scott Walker to name a few.

Angus Munro's live band members play piano, bass, guitars (both electric and acoustic), drums, organ, accordion and alto saxophone and - after touring in the past under various aliases with The Hoosiers, The Rumble Strips and The Milk - are seasoned performers who know how to show an audience a good time.

Angus himself is a well-trained songwriter, having studied composition at BA Applied Music course at Strathclyde University, and has been on the road with various bands and artists since 2007. This is his first solo attempt.
