Gnoss

Album: The Light Of The Moon

Release Date: May 7th 2021

Musical style: Contemporary Folk

'Take

four

indecently

talented

young

musicians.

Combine

myriad

skills

sharpened

at

Glasgow’s

Royal

Conservatoire

of

Scotland.

Stand

back

and be beguiled.

The

impact

of

Scottish

quartet

Gnoss

has

been

instant

and

well-

deserved.

Created

in

Scotland’s

northern

isles

by

Orcadians

Aidan

Moodie

(vocals,

acoustic

guitar)

and

Graham

Rorie

(fiddle,

mandolin,

electric

tenor

guitar)

in

2015,

the

duo

quickly

upped

the

ante

to

a

four-

piece

with

the

addition

of

Perthshire’s

Connor

Sinclair

on

flute

and

whistles

and

Clackmannanshire’s

Craig

Baxter

on

bodhran

and

percussion.

Joined

on

this

album

by

Braebach’s

James

Lindsay

on

double

bass,

their

signature

sound

is

a

rich

tapestry

of

acoustic

layers

and

textures,

mixing

outstanding

musicianship

with

captivating

songs

conjured

and

led by the arresting voice of Aidan Moodie.

The

sound

may

be

rooted

in

the

tradition

but

those

roots

spread

widely

and

confidently

into

contemporary

compositions

that

manage

to

be

both poignant and powerful, sensitive and savvy.
