Biography

Broken Chanter is David MacGregor, on his lonesome, or

accompanied by an array of very talented musicians. MacGregor

spent 2007-2017 as the principal songwriter of Scottish Alt-Pop

darlings Kid Canaveral - a band that could get you to dance,

laugh, and weep all in the space of a set. Their Debut LP Shouting

at Wildlife was described by The Herald as "a Scottish pop classic

that should be mandatory in every record collection in the

country", with follow-up Now That You Are a Dancer being

nominated for the Scottish Album of the Year Award in 2014.

A light-hearted raconteur and heavy-hearted singer when

accompanied by just a guitar, and a spectacle of energetic

melodic noise when fully electric, MacGregor released the

eponymous Broken Chanter to critical acclaim in September

2019. It is a record which paints an emotional and expansive

soundscape with a distinct sense of place, and showcases

MacGregor's ear for melody and dexterity at tugging heart-strings.

With touring cut short by - you guessed it - the

COVID-19 pandemic, MacGregor sat in his flat,

freaked out for a bit, then dusted himself off and set

about writing a new record. The resulting

Catastrophe Hits was recorded and produced by

Paul Savage at Chem19 and is a bold, thrilling and

hopeful kick-back against creeping fascism, disaster

capitalism, and humanity's apparent death spiral. A

record filled to the brim with sharp pop sensibility and

sublime gentler moments, Catastrophe Hits peaked at

#7 in the Scottish Album Chart, #10 in the UK Vinyl

Chart, #16 in the UK Independent Chart, and #29 in

the UK Physical Sales Chart.
