— Argyle Singh is a 24 year old singer/songwriter from Ayrshire, Scotland. His genre could be described as Folk/Pop all the way to Blues/Rock but most importantly it is all brought together by his encapturing, raspy voice! He began his career in music playing on the streets of Amsterdam earning money to live and travel at age 19 with little more than a bag of clothes, an old guitar and a dream. Since then he has roamed all across Europe playing in streets, beaches, bars, event halls and festivals sharing his musical talent with the world… and he’s not done yet!
2017 saw Argyle release his first ever debut single ‘Another loss’ which has been mentioned in multiple online magazines, radio stations, Spotify playlists and even news papers (details attached). Then followed the release of his first ever EP ‘Long time coming’ in Zurich, Switzerland. All links to the EP can be found below.
His musical influences consist of people from way back like Ray Charles, Otis Redding and Bob Dylan… And more recent influences like Paolo Nutini, Ray Lamontagne and Ben Howard.
