This Scottish troubadour, with his impossibly thick Glaswegian accent and trademark Lenin cap, is the best thing I have heard in ages. The first time I played his hit, Sometimes, it was stuck on heavy rotation for 24 hours. Gerard Crosbie, 35, akaGerry Cinnamon, is something of an industry outsider. In 2017, he funded his first album, Erratic Cinematic, via the PledgeMusic platform and released it without a label. Even without traditional label support, the album has given Cinnamon a sizable following, especially in Scotland, and he is now starting to crossover into the mainstream south of the border and beyond.
