An avid music fan of all genres, Ewan has been writing songs since his late teens. Formerly lead guitarist and co-songwriter of Vapour Trail, whose last cd/downlaod 'Skywriting', for one week only, was ahead of The Best of Chris Rea and one place behind Michael Jackson's History in the I-Tunes download chart. Sadly, the cd faded into obscurity and is now somewhat of a collectors item!
In his guise as a solo artist, Ewan is informed by the melodic sensibilities of singer songwriters including Josh Ritter, Josh Rouse and Steve Earle (not all of his influences are called Josh!), and favours a fairly introspective approach to songwriting.
