Scocha was born when Iain SCOtt and David CHApman (SCO-CHA) got together to share their love of music and song. Both from Hawick, they began to play local gigs and functions around the Scottish Borders. They were soon spotted and commissioned to make 6 'Clans' TV programmes which were broadcast on ITV.
The combination of Iain’s strong vocals and noted talent in musical arrangement combined superbly with David’s natural feel for an audience and quick-witted banter. It was not long before a loyal following developed and their first CD 'Bordering On' was released to wide acclaim. Phil Clayton joined the boys for the album, and the launch concert. And then there were three! 2004 saw the release of the highly acclaimed 'The Land We Love' album which was launched with a 'World Tour of the Borders'. Fellow Hawick lad Alan Brydon composed the track 'Battle Dawn' and joined the lads on the CD and on the tour. And then there were four! The latest album 'Gie’d Sum Wellie' is their most anticipated and sought after CD so far, with advanced sales coming in from around the world, reflecting the growing demand for Scocha’s unique brand of 'Folk 'n' Roll'. They are already in the studio laying down tracks for their next CD.
Foot stomping, sing-along, rousing, emotional, heart pounding, a Scocha gig is packed with the feel-good factor.
