Scottish folk artist Man of the Minch’s new song, “Don’t Go,” features an instrumental menagerie of vibrant sounds. It’s a flashy blend of synth-pop, rock, techno and Celtic vibrations paired so brilliantly together creating a sound masterpiece for your ears.  

Mid-song there’s reference to mermaids and sirens which ties into the meaning of Man of the Minch. Per mermaid myth, The Men of the Minch are mythological creatures that inhabit the stretch of water between the Outer Hebrides and the mainland of Scotland, looking for sailors to drown and boats to sink.

Man of the Minch is the alias of Glasgow-based singer-songwriter and instrumentalist Pedro Cameron. As a member of the LGBTQ community, he breaks musical boundaries with a diverse scope of musical elements and lyrics of life and love. Man of the Minch merges traditional Scottish music with modern electronic dance beats to create a most unique tune. His voice is equally unique and fits perfectly within the song style.

“Don’t Go” is the latest single from Man of Minch’s debut album, The Tide Is at The Turning, available now.
