Ltitia Sadier is a French musician best-known as the singer of the post-rock band Stereolab. Until the band's hiatus in 2009 Sadier was the main contributor of lyrics, written in both English and French. Sadier also plays keyboards, percussion, guitar and trombone.

She has also contributed vocals to various other groups and projects, at times along with the late Stereolab member Mary Hansen. Sadier was also involved the band Monade with Pram's Rosie Cuckston. Among her other contributions were, adding French backing vocals on "To the End", a top 20 hit for Blur in 1994. In 1995, Sadier recorded the Serge Gainsbourg/Brigitte Bardot song "Bonnie and Clyde" with Luna. She and Hansen contributed vocals to the recordings of the High Llamas (the project of sometimes-Stereolab member Sean O'Hagan). She sang lead vocals on "Haiku One" from Sigmatropic's 2004 album Sixteen Haiku & Other Stories which was an album based on the poetry of Greek poet George Seferis. In 2009 the French label Deux Mille released an ep which features Laetitia Sadier singing with Momotte, a band out of Toulouse. Throughout the years, Sadier has occasionally collaborated with German electronica group Mouse on Mars.

In 2010 she released a solo album called The Trip.



A lynchpin in Aberdeen's music scene, Steven Milne wears many hats; musician, promoter, DJ, booker, you name it. Hardest working man in show business. Perhaps best-known as lead singer in respected Scottish indie-pop band The Little Kicks, he's now branching out with solo material including recently release album Chasing Phantoms on Bedford Records which is a shimmering slice of pop/folk goodness full of the kind*of gems which are making ears twitch around Scotland and far, far beyond...*



Iona Marshall is now based in the West end of Glasgow, becoming recognised there for her original live performances, fusing melodic folk with experimental synth parts, delicate harmonies, found samples and acoustic guitar hooks. Her beautiful songs are Celtic tinged and her solo performances are heartfelt and enigmatic. She sings about landscape, love, travel, spirituality and whatever sounds come out in a stream of consciousness. Her unique song-craft has been honed over many years, blending life-long influences with modern interpretations and experimentation, exploring her passions, emotions and philosophies through sublime, haunting sound-scapes.
