Solareye is the solo moniker of Dave Hook, the enigmatic and lyrically acrobatic frontman of hip-hop band Stanley Odd who makes his return to the Tolbooth touring his latest solo album ‘All These People Are Me’.
The Edinburgh-based emcee has forged a shimmering career penning fun, clever, and accessible hip-hop with a world-wise and socially conscious message. He can flip from humorous and witty to hard-hitting and poignant, with the versatility to deliver each live with a real gravity. The musical backing is always sharp, the new record packed with dark synth lines and stuttering electronic drums.
CROOQ exist somewhere at the intersection of live hip-hop, jazz and feverish smoothie consumption. Comprising a high calibre of active Scottish musicians from varying backgrounds, CROOQ are set to stake a swift claim on the Scottish scene and far beyond.
For fans of: The Roots / badbadnotgood / Anderson Paak & The Free Nationals / Akua Naru / Steely Dan.
