Biography

‘I will always make music and put out records, no matter what happens or what’s going on’. Traquair 2007

Traquair is Glasgow based Singer Songwriter Stewart Traquair. Born in Pretoria, South Africa where he spent the first seven years of his life. It was here he acquired an early taste for music by sliding and scratching his parent’s vinyl collection. The victims included ‘The Beach Boy’s – Pet Sounds’ and ‘Al Stewart – Year of the Cat’ among others. Narrowly missing death on more than one occasion, his near misses included: falling off a truck in a Safari Park (luckily the men with tranquiliser gun’s were on hand), almost drowning in Crocodile Infested Quick Sand (his Dad on hand to pull him out by the hair) and narrowly missing a bomb explosion in the local bank. You could say life was hectic for the young Stewart Traquair.

At seven his parents decided to move back to Glasgow, Scotland. The next few years were fairly normal for Stewart Traquair. That is until he found himself with a £15 guitar and a notepad at the age of 12. Mastering the C chord and ‘The House of the Rising Sun’, Bands came, tambourines went and with a few years of gigging, writing and recording past, Stewart Traquair decided to become a solo artist.

‘Writing is the most important thing, write down everything that you see and feel. It teaches you a lot about other people.’ Traquair 2007

Between 2002 and 2005, Traquair the solo artist released 3 e.p’s: Levelled – 2002, The Three Sides of Perception – 2004 and Hello, Good Times Goodbye – 2005.
