Artesan were originally formed around 2010 in Falkirk, Scotland, when it was just Ronnie Bissett (lead vocal), Dickson Telfer (bass guitar) and Will Treeby (guitar) writing tunes and playing the odd gig but after going their seperate ways at the end of 2013 they re-formed late 2018 with Ronnie's son Bryce (lead guitar) and long time collaborator Stuart Blackwood on drums. 

"We like our music to be rock but with an Artesan spin, leading the listener one way and then giving them something they don’t expect. Acoustic guitars mixed in with soaring electric guitar solos, grooving drum beats, underpinned with bass guitar which can make your foot tap on one track and your chest burst on another, give it a dash of synth and top it off with a soaring  vocal.  That’s the Artesan sound."

The band have released 5 singles to date which have all received airplay on numerous radio stations such as BBC Introducing, Amazing Radio, Radio Wigwam and many more.

The band have played the breakthrough stage at Vibration festival in Falkirk. headlined 13th Note in Glasgow and The Old Hairdressers in Glasgow as well as supporting slots with Dr. Veers and Science Made Us Robots.    

A 6th single is due for release in February 2024
