Sandi Thom

Sandi Thom is a Scottish singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist from Macduff in Aberdeenshire. She became widely known in 2006 after a series of webcasts secured her a record deal with RCA and the success of the single "I Wish I Was a Punk Rocker (With Flowers in My Hair)".

This is a feisty, folky evocation of a bygone era which was inspired, somewhat unexpectedly, by the loss of her mobile phone. Sung against a clattering backdrop of shakers, handclaps and boots banging on a wooden floor the poignant lyric recalls what Sandi fondly imagines to have been a better time when: "the head of state didn't play guitar/Not everybody drove a car/When music really mattered and radio was king."

The song's bittersweet payoff line - "I was born too late to a world that doesn't care" - clearly comes from the heart. But in reality Sandi Thom has arrived in exactly the right place at the right time. And already the world is starting to care.
