Strikingly individual, twin brothers Craig and Charlie Reid emerged 31 years ago with their debut album This Is The Story and Top 3 single ‘Letter from America’. Since then their enduring appeal across generations has over the years seen them enjoy huge success across the globe. The Proclaimers songs are timeless, capturing a gamut of human emotions, written with poignancy, emotional honesty, political fire and wit. Their songs feature at weddings, funerals and everything in-between and are known the world over.
The Proclaimers have carved out a niche for themselves in the netherworld where pop, folk, new wave and punk collide. In the process, they have enjoyed hit singles and albums worldwide. They have even inspired a musical, the play and film Sunshine on Leith. The movie was the fifth highest grossing Independent UK film of 2013. The musical had its fourth UK run in 2018 with its biggest production to date by West Yorkshire Playhouse. Last year also marked the 30th anniversary since the release of the Sunshine On Leith album and their 11th studio album Angry Cyclist. With nearly three decades of career longevity, they are renowned for their live shows and with every album and gig, they’ve continued to garner new fans.
