Dub Chieftain, right, is the alter ego of former west end resident Eddie Coleman, 33.

The talented singer, songwriter and musician grew up in the west end of Greenock but now lives in Glasgow, where he works as a social worker.

He has a unique folky electronica sound mixed with rapping, banjo - which he plays - mixed with charity shop keyboards.

All the keyboards on Dub Chieftain's latest album, Skill, Stamina and Luck, were bought in Greenock charity shops or the Barras.

The tracks are all 'lo-fi' productions and all recorded on 4-track cassette.

Dub used to be a music tutor in Riverview Resource Centre, Woodhall, Port Glasgow, and was an art tutor in various Inverclyde community centres.

Dub will be playing a gig in Portland in July to promote the album.

His first album, Memos From The Dub Grotto, is available to buy on iTunes and other online retailers.

It was released by White Label Music, run by Ann Shenton of band Add N to (X) - an electronica group who were big in the 90s.

Dub has been performing in Glasgow on and off for several years. He also played a few gigs in Europe with the STFU collective, a group of electronica musicians


released May 29, 2014
