This Glasgow based band have been playing their mix of rock, soul and new country sounds since they formed in 1986 by bassist Johnny McElhone. With the release of White On Blonde in 1997 they became major stars, propelled by huge pop hits such as Say What You Want and Black Eyed Boy. Many groups could be destroyed by such success, but Texas have continued writing and recording, sustained by their very particular love of music, and listeners can still enjoy the classic mix of Sharleen Spiteri's distinctive vocals with an experienced band who know what they're doing.

Eddi Reader was brought into the limelight with Fairground Attraction and their single 'Perfect' and parent album First of a Million Kisses which both topped the British charts. However, it has been her subsequent solo albums which signalled her increasing ability to assimilate different musical styles and make them all very much her own. From the traditional to the contemporary, Eddi brings to life all forms of song and what sets Eddi apart is the depth and quality of the emotional performance.
