He can regularly be found at gigs around Scotland (including presenting live from T in the Park for BBC Scotland) and in the North supporting new and local music. With a conversational, informative yet light-hearted style, Ally is a new talent who has a very exciting future ahead of him.
Ally’s musical taste became widely regarded after launching Detour Scotland which started as a podcast featuring unsigned Scottish bands. It soon gained a large dedicated following and a reputation for putting on gigs in new and unusual venues across the country.

While there Ally managed Air3, the University’s Student Station, which in his own words was “a place full of bold ideas, arm-chancing, creativity and sing-a-longs”. He did also gain a degree in Film and Media Studies.
Ally is also an avid football fan and has the honour of being the stadium announcer at St. Mirren Football Club entertaining and informing the crowd during match days. Having made a big impact at the ‘Saints’ Ally was invited to contribute to BBC Scotland’s Off the Ball.
