A KEIGHLEY man is part of a band vying for a top Scottish music award in a public vote.

Constant Follower is in the running for an accolade in the Scottish Alternative Music Awards.

People are being asked to vote, by 5pm tomorrow (November 10), from 28 of the best new artists in the country.

Constant Follower's line-up includes Keighley-born Andrew Pankhurst.

Andrew ­­– a former pupil of Nessfield Primary, Bronte Middle School and Oakbank, and now of Stirling – said: "The band has been steadily building a decent level of success in the last 18 months and we’re delighted to now be up for a Scottish Alternative Music Award. It has gone to a public vote for a very short window."

Constant Follower – which is nominated for 'best acoustic act' – released its debut album, Neither Is Nor Ever Was, on legendary American indie label Shimmy Disc last month. And it has received a string of glowing reviews.

The band was selected as "ones to watch" by Scotland’s music industry convention Wide Days – and filmed an exclusive live set for the conference in Edinburgh's Usher Hall.
