AN up-and-coming musician from Johnstone is set to perform in his hometown. Singer-songwriter Alan Smith, 19, is set to play a joint gig on June 30 at the Per4mance Studios in Johnstone.

Last month the ambitious teen gained the attention of musicians Boy George and Sophie Ellis-Bexter on social media site Twitter when the artists re-tweeted a link to his EP.

Titled 'The Actress and the Lifeguard,' the six-track project was written and produced entirely by Alan alone.

The UWS student will be sharing the stage with other Renfrewshire local artists including Murdo Mitchell, The Van T's and Amanda Williams.

The gig will be held on June 30 at 7pm.
