Rob McLaughlin is a Scottish singer/songwriter and guitarist - born in Scotland’s old capital Dunfermline and now based in Edinburgh. He is also enrolled at Edinburgh Napier University, studying popular music. Blending the Indie, Folk, and Rock Genres, Shorthouse moves between guitar and piano-driven arrangements with strong use of layered vocal harmonies and a paired-back clean, acoustic sound. Influences such as Fleetwood Mac, James Taylor, The Paper Kites, Nick Drake, and Joni Mitchell are easily noted through the repertoire. Following the enthusiastic reception of the 2020 single release ‘Walls End’, Shorthouse’s sound is consolidated with new material exploring self-reflection and life experiences.
