Described by A&R Factory as a "melodically gifted powerhouse", Glasgow based Black Star Jackals burst on to the scene at the start of 2019. The alt-rock/pop 4 piece have quickly garnered new fans, radio airplay and positive reviews from industry professionals thanks to their infectious melodies and hard rock vibes.

Kieran McFarlane's soaring vocals, Steven Joseph's infectious guitar hooks, Max Lamprecht's pounding basslines and Calum Macpherson's hard hitting drum beats all combine to create a sound that harks back to the heyday of 90’s alt-rock whilst also being contemporary and distinctly their own.

In Summer 2019 they won the Scottish Final of the Soundwaves Music Competition.

They recently released their debut single Maybe to great critical acclaim and their follow up single Off the Table will be released late October 2019.

"There’s really no over-exaggerating what a promising debut this is from the Glaswegian 4-piece melodically gifted powerhouse" - Amelia Vandergast
