Two brothers from Renfrewshire are star performers on a music single which is bidding to win the prized No.1 slot in the UK’s coveted Christmas chart.

Archie and Dougal Collingridge-Watt, from Lochwinnoch, sing on ‘The Man in the Red Velvet Suit,’ which was released on Sunday by Scotland’s Youth Radio Network.

The talented brothers are calling on as many people as possible to help send the single to the top of the charts by downloading or buying it.

At just 15, Archie is already making a name for himself as a singer-songwriter.

A student at the prestigious National Music School at Douglas Academy, in Milngavie, he also attends the Junior Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, in Glasgow, where he studies jazz piano and singing.

Nine-year-old Dougal is a pupil at Lochwinnoch Primary School and sings for the Renfrewshire branch of the National Youth Choir of Scotland.

Archie made up the arrangement and harmonies for the festive single, which features a total of 20 young musicians.

He also performs lead vocals and plays the piano.

“Music has got me through some pretty difficult times in my own life and singing is the one thing that I know will make me happy,” said Archie.

“It’s been a brilliant experience working with everyone on the Christmas single but every young person should have these opportunities, so please give the Youth Radio Network your support and make this happen.”

Dougal ventured into pop this summer, giving his debut performance at no less than King Tut’s Wah Wah Hut, in Glasgow.

He said: “It was really good fun being in a recording studio.

“I was really scared at first but everyone was really nice and now I’m so pleased I did it.”

The boys’ mum, author and broadcaster Vanessa Collingridge, said: “I am incredibly proud, not just of Dougal and Archie, but of everyone involved in producing the single.

“There was a lot of hard work and pressure to get it ready in time but it was an amazing experience for them.”

Scotland’s Youth Radio Network, a not-for -profit organisation, was the brainchild of Keiran Harvey, who set it up in 2016 when he was just 16 years old to encourage young musicians to express themselves.

Half of the money raised from sales of the festive single will be donated to charity, with the remainder helping the network continue its work.

The single is available on all major platforms, including Spotify, Deezer and iTunes.
