Created by frontman Stephen McAll, Constant Follower is an intriguing experimental folk band featuring Andrew Pankhurst (guitar), Amy Campbell (backing vocals/synth) and Kathleen Stosch (backing vocals, synth and bass). Support has come from Gideon Coe on BBC Radio 6, Vic Galloway on BBC Radio Scotland and Folk Radio.

Having survived a violent gang attack as a teenager, McAll’s head injuries were so severe he completely lost his memory. He relocated to the remote Hebridean coast where, through songwriting, he reimagined and invented a new childhood, using the desolate yet beautiful Hebrides as a backdrop.
