The Proclaimers are a Scottish music duo composed of twin brothers Charlie and Craig Reid.
They are best known for their songs I'm Gonna Be (500 Miles), Sunshine on Leith, I'm On My Way and Letter from America, and their singing style with a Scottish accent.
Following early success on the strength of their blend of pop and politics, the brothers Reid – Charlie and Craig– have reached the rarefied status that few have been able to achieve: with nearly three decades of career longevity, they are as innovative as ever.
With every album and show played, they’ve garnered new fans, all the while consistently replenishing one of the most precious resources in music – thoughtful pop albums.
The breadth of the brothers’ talent is evidenced with their acoustic EP, a reimagining of three of the songs on 2007’s Life With You, plus a cover of the Kings of Leon’s 17.
The rest of the EP takes on some of the band’s most politicised material, dealing with the British honors system, political responsibility and the unending wars in Afghanistan and Iraq.
The Reid’s continued spirit of political consciousness blended with ear-catching pop hooks is present on Notes and Rhymes, according to Craig, their most sombre yet.
The band tours extensively throughout the world.
They have released 11 studio albums since 1987, with the latest being The Angry Cyclist in August 2018, as well as three compilation albums and a DVD.
