About Chasing

Guitarist
Edinburgh
Chasing Vinyl Duo. Acoustic classics spanning the decades. Stripped back guitar vocals and percussion.

Chasing Vinyl is a dynamic and professional acoustic duo based in Edinburgh, Scotland. Consisting of Anita and Will, this stripped down, acoustic driven duo is fuelled on a love for music both old and new. Prior to joining forces, they have both worked on a variety of projects both worldwide and here in the UK. Anita has been singing professionally for over 15 years and in that time, she has worked in many areas of entertainment. Ranging from a solo cabaret singer and a tribute artist to a backing singer in a touring theatre show in the West End, Anita is a natural performer. She also fronted her own four piece corporate / wedding band for 4 years playing in venues such as Edinburgh Castle, Stirling Castle, Turnberry Golf Course, The Balmoral Hotel and The Sheraton group of hotels, to name but a few. Will is a guitarist and vocalist with over 10 years of live and recording experience both here in the UK and Canada. Now fronting his own original outfit The Rum Runners as well as performing solo, he has experience playing within a variety of formats, ranging from wedding outfits to 5 piece electric rock bands. His experience in such a wide variety of musical endeavours has allowed him to fine tune his craft and become a well rounded musician. Now performing as a duo together, they are currently performing in and around Edinburgh and are available for weddings, bar and restaurant venues and corporate events.

Website, 3 years ago

Sensational sets from you guys tonight, the Cross Keys Inn crowd loved you! Thank you and we'll be in touch for future bookings.

Last M, 1 year ago

Performers were excellent from start to finish. Anita was available to chat on the phone prior to the event and I felt immediately comfortable that I had the best people for the job. She designed a playlist around our wishes (Despite some tricky requests!). They set up in advance of time, the performance was excellent, the artists looked great and created a perfect atmosphere for our wedding reception. Payment was easy and could highly recommend these excellent musicians. I was happy that LMM facilitated me in finding Anita at such short notice prior to our event.
