White Heath is a band of five friends formed in early 2008 and based in Edinburgh, united by a common love of Twin Peaks and all night games of Risk. We write songs using piano, guitar, violin, trombone, percussion and vocals, and our aim is to write music with imagination and honesty, taking our cues from the songs of The Band, the compositions of Mahler and Bartók and the innovative attitudes of bands such as Mogwai, Talking Heads and Tool. We enjoy performing in any setting, from intimate venues like the GRV and Henry’s Cellar Bar to large-scale collaborations with the Scottish School of Contemporary Dance and the Edinburgh Charity Fashion Show. This summer we are making our festival debut at the Kelburn Garden Party, with fresh recordings planned.

Currently showing up at venues all over the country and endearing themselves to audiences. Their mix of angular jangly guitar, melodic bass lines and precise drumming, certainly make them a band to look out for. With a follow up their debut album and EP currenty in the works, they seem set to expand their repotiore of catchy and interesting songs and establish themselves up their with Edinburgh's finest bands.
