Team Member: Kirsty Johnston

My name is Kirsty Johnston and I come from a Village called Bothwell. I have a such a tickle for Pop-punk and my favourite band is Neck Deep. I attend New College Lanarkshire studying music business in the hope to worm my way into the industry setting up live events. I am not afraid to spit out my honest opinion but I love everyone.

Lost Dials – Girls Like You

Lost Dials are a four-piece pop/rock band from North-West London. After forming in summer 2014, the last year has seen the band complete two UK headline tours following support tours with the likes of Room 94, Alexander and Symmetry. The band brought out this track back in February this year and what a song this is! With their indie/ rock tone, I expect big things for these guys in the coming years!
