Flew The Arrow fills the room with warm timbres of his acoustic guitar and a soft voice that bristles just lightly with an Ayrshire twang, crafting earnest narratives of love and loss from romantic landscapes, who’s imagery weaves through each song like a subtle and haunting poem. His presence cuts a friendly, laid back intimacy, introducing each song with genuine enthusiasm.”

The flight of the Arrow..

Flew The Arrow is the spiritual guise of Lee McGilvray, hailing from a small town of Ayr on the West coast of Scotland, and now residing in Glasgow where he has grown his reputation as an original Alternative and Contemporary Folk Singer/Songwriter and Acoustic Fingerstylist over the past three years. Lee independently released his debut EP “If You’d Only Care To Listen” in 2016 and since has made his mark performing at festivals around the central belt, whilst honing his craft and building his network of listeners in the city. Having signed to 23rd Precinct Music Publishing in 2018, Flew The Arrow began 2019 performing for the Celtic Connections Hazy Recollections and Danny Kyle stages, followed by a signing to Electric Honey Records, which gave birth to his Double A-Side Single release in March (Come The Wind, Come The Rain/Trail Of Thought). This was but the very start of a full EP released in December ’19 titled ‘Trossach’, and a new chapter in the flight of the Arrow as he expands his sound on record and on stage with a quartet accompaniment creating a soundscape of Cello, Fiddle and Flute that truly bring his songs to life, giving insight into the direction of his song-craft and touching on influence from traditional sounds.

 

Accompanied by Ross Hull on Fiddle, Sarah McWhinney on Cello and Caitlin MacKenzie on Flute.

 

“Melding fleeting fingerstyle melodies through an array of pleasant open tunings, accompanied by his poetic lyrics and powerful voice, that collate to for a warm sense of original acoustic songwriting that is yet to be discovered.”

The changing seasons and vibrant nature surrounding us has always been a pure source of inspiration and perspective in my life and is something I’ve always been drawn towards in my writing, as many a muso has. These songs are a collection of ones old and new, woven together as a melodic and lyrical journey through the ever-changing seasons, from the birth of spring time to the dead of winter, which seeks to find the heads and hearts of true listeners and share solace in finding the beauty around us in a disconnected world.

The title ‘Trossach’ is lent from the encapsulating mountains and forest area that surround us just north of Glasgow which I regularly gaze upon from the top of Queens Park in Southside, and reminds me of the perplexing weight of the world and the deep beauty of nature around us, in turn, easing my mind from the calamity of city living and opening the doors for inspiration.
