Thanks again,

Hamish Napier (Songwriter/Multi-instrumentalist)

Who should I get to design my gig poster or newspaper advert? Who is the best company to use to print my new CDs…who can I trust that can give me a really good price? Who can give me sound advice on marketing and promo of my album? These guys! They are lovely folk, and they will do an awesome job. Because they are so experienced. They get 10/10 from me!

Somhairle MacDonald (Freelance Graphics Artist)

So, Hamish Napier’s album arrived today and I have awarded myself a chufty badge. It’s as sharp as I hoped for. Music sounds great and is as intricate as the illustrations. Good on Birnam CD for nailing it on the quality front once again.

Eddie Seaman (Barluath, Eddie & Luc)

Myself and the guys in Barluath contacted Birnam CD to work with us on the release of our second album At Dawn of Day. At the same time, myself and Luc McNally contacted them about the release of our EP Headlights. Despite the slightly daunting prospect of recording and releasing an album, Martin and the team at Birnam made the experience an absolute joy. They were there to give advice when it was needed and were thoroughly reliable throughout the process. They have a slogan “Be Seen Be Heard” and that is exactly what they do. I would highly recommend them to anyone wishing to release their own music.

Kirsty Potts (Singer/Songwriter)

I received the CD’s today. They look amazing. Really happy with them. Thank you very much and I am really pleased with the radio play and the good reviews that I have received. It has been worth investing in the promo package.

Tommy Beavitt (Boatshed Records)

I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending Birnam; a business based on customer loyalty and word of mouth recommendations.Their customer service skills are second to none and they will always go the extra mile to ensure a quality job. Their after-care is highly recommended also.

Mairi Orr (Singer/Songwriter)

I’ve got my CDs. They look and sound great – many thanks for all your help!

Lewis Hamilton (Lewis Hamilton and the Boogie Brothers)

We cannot recommend Birnam enough. This is always a large investment for a small band,and it’s so important to feel confidence with handing over hours and hours of work.  Birnam not only helped us through the MCPS/PRS paperwork in a very personable and friendly manner but also did a stunning job with the mastering. The product arrived the day it was supposed to and the printing/packaging was even better. Delighted!

David Gardner (Shetland Arts Trust)

Fantastic! Great service as always.

Gavin Sutherland (The Sutherland Brothers, Solo)

Fantastic! Great service as always.

Ian McCalman (The McCalmans)

As good a design and print of poster that we’ve ever had, if not the best! It was imaginative yet sympathetic. Bit of a triumph really. Thanks Calum.

Margaret Douglas (President, World Saxophone Congress)

Nice article in the Scotsman; got in touch after you sent out the promo so thanks.

XXXXXX might make promises, but Birnam CD delivers! Now, there’s a slogan for you.

Sophie Ramsay (Scots Singer)

Birnam CD have surpassed expectations on every level. The CD packaging looks amazing and they put a lot of care into making sure it would. I used their PR service and they got me a lot of radio play across the country and several reviews. They are friendly and quick to respond to questions as they arise. I couldn’t be more delighted with the service I’ve experienced.

Shirlie Roden (Singer/Songwriter/Instrumentalist)

I love Birnam’s professional and creative attitude.  The promotional material they designed for me looked great and they worked hard to get my album reviewed and played. Highly recommended!
