Shona Brown Short Info

Shona Brown is a musician and solo performer based in Glasgow.  Using looping technology she layers her flutes and vocals with electronic sounds to create atmospheric songs and soundscapes.

Shona, from Motherwell, began playing the flute age 12.  Age 13 she recorded with Mogwai on their album “Young Team”. She went on to study classical flute and won many awards including a Donald Dewar Arts Award, a Masters with distinction from the Guildhall School of Music and Drama, and was semi-finalist in the BBC Young Musician of the Year.

 After her studies she continued to work with many notable artists and groups including the National Theatre of Scotland and Barbara Thompson. She set up SoundRoutes, where she runs a 150-strong community choir and other projects.  In 2012 Shona created a groundbreaking project called “Changing Key”, enabling prisoners of HMP Addiewell to release a 4 track EP, raising thousands of pounds for Shelter Scotland.

She released her debut EP of folk/world inspired acoustic songs and instrumentals “Gather the Ocean” in 2011.  Now, Shona engineers her own music and works with a more ambient and electronic sound.  She debuted this with five shows at the Edinburgh Fringe 2014, receiving favourable reviews.

In November Shona embarked on an ambitious new project - 10in10 - releasing 10 recordings in 10 months on the 10th of each month. She performed live on BBC Radio Scotland in December 2014 and is scheduled to appear live on STV Glasgow in January 2015.
