20 something Scottish singer/songwriter Eilidh McKellar has received quite a bit of attention across the blogosphere, as several bloggers and critics have considered her among a line of incredibly soulful and talented UK-based singers including Amy WinehouseAdeleAlice Russell, Joss Stone and others. 

“Summer Daze,” the first single from the Scottish singer/songwriter’s forthcoming full-length effort, Delta Devil Dreams was a slow burning and seductive track that had the young McKellar sounding more adult than her years. “Hold Steady,” the album’s second single manages to mesh adult alternative/adult pop with rock and the blues – but no matter, the song manages to be roomy enough to display McKellar’s bluesy, sultry vocals much like her first single; however, “Hold Steady” is a grittier, more rock-based song. 

i’ve said this before but I think you’ll be hearing a lot about McKellar over the next few months – with only a very small back catalog, she’s been compared to the likes of Stevie Ray Vaughan, Jack White, Amy Winehouse and others.
