Powered by Audioscrobbler™Rory McVicar is musician and songwriter currently living in London.

In mid to late 2005, McVicar's demo received heavy rotation on the BBC Radio 1 Onemusic shows, helmed by Huw Stephens and Rob da Bank. This led to an appearance at In The City in Manchester, as part of Radio 1 Unsigned; as well as the recording of a live Maida Vale session for the show. The track 'Little One', which was the first song on the CD-R, clocked in at number 20 in the traditional end of year Festive Fifty countdown.

McVicar's first release was a split 7" single with electronic artist Hoofus, featuring the song 'Hide Yrself'. Another single, called 'The Things You Do' followed shortly thereafter.

In November 2007, McVicar released his self-titled debut album on the Series 8 label. The album picked up favourable reviews across the British music press, with singles 'Now That You're Mine' and 'No More Do I Care' getting airplay across the dial.

Subsequent tours followed, including festival appearances at Latitude and Exit, as well as support slots for Josh T. Pearson, Bat For Lashes and Monkey Swallows the Universe. McVicar went on to play guitar on the first solo album released by Nat Johnson, entitled 'Roman Radio'.

In February 2010, McVicar released his second album, 'Another Sleepless Night' on his own Lonesome Goodnight Recordings label. The album was released digitally, as well as on heavy-weight vinyl, via http://rorymcvicar.co.uk/

Presently, McVicar is in the process of writing material for a new album, slated for release in the early part of 2012.
