fake major's two name strong band sound anything but the work of a simple four-armed singer song writer. richard ferguson and david mcginty have successfully produced well-crafted music throughout their youth. now, with their new project, fake major, they present their writing in its most instinctive form. live, their songs are stripped down, not into acoustic versions, but refined, articulate performances built around the delicate blend of the band’s dual vocals.

kate dunn is a singer songwriter from glasgow. she has always had a passion for music from a very young age. her love for instruments first began with sunday afternoons playing the piano with her grandpa and has now emerged into poetry and a talent as a multi instrumentalist. for kate, writing songs is the most natural thing she knows. telling stories of loved ones and composing melodies that stay in your head, her inspiration comes from the people in her life and personal experiences that she has been through.
