Fraser John Lindsay

Fraser was born in Glasgow in 1984, well after many of his musical heroes had peaked. Nevertheless, music was always going to be a big part of his life. From an early age Fraser demonstrated, not only an enthusiasm, but also a distinct proficiency for piano, violin and drums; but it was the guitar that really grabbed his imagination, and - spurred on by an early realisation that he had some sort of ‘gift’ - he eagerly pursued every opportunity to develop and hone his craft as a guitarist. He began taking piano lessons at the age of eight, but by the age of ten had switched to guitar, having been inspired by various 90’s guitar bands such as Oasis and Ocean Colour Scene. His father's large record collection was also a vital contribution, offering a variety of musical genres, including Rock, Jazz, Big Band, Blues, Folk and Classical. While most of his contemporaries were busy working out the chords for Wonderwall, Fraser was more interested in learning licks from vintage tracks like Shaken All Over by Johnny Kidd and the Pirates’, as well as Led Zeppelin’s How Many More Times. Despite being heavily influenced by Blues-Rock, Fraser started out playing lead guitar in modern punk group Limon during the late 90’s, playing a selection of Blink 182, Greenday songs and original material. However, as time moved on so did Fraser, who began jamming with more experienced musicians such as Willie Mathews. Fraser was now regularly attending jam sessions such as the excellent Tuesday night blues session at The State Bar in Glasgow. By his early 20's Fraser had joined Little Miss Debbie and the Scumbag Boogie Band, playing the Scottish pub circuit and also working with Glasgow singer / songwriter Richard Terris forming Blues-Rock outfit Riff Raff. In May 2008 Fraser joined rock n’ roll outfit Blind Panik. Fraser has also recorded with some talented singer / songwriters including Willie Matthews, Sarah Cassidy, Jennifer McLardy and Moria Kerr.
