Alumnus And DJ Wins At The Scottish Music Awards
Congratulations to DJ and University of the West of Scotland (UWS) graduate Ewan McVicar who was awarded the Electronic Music Award at the Scottish Music Awards on Saturday 5 November 2022.
Ewan, who was a first-time Scottish Music Awards nominee, shot to fame with his hit ‘Tell Me Something Good’and told STV news how he graduated as a teacher before changing career.
“I was doing primary teaching at University of the West of Scotland in Ayr – and mum was fine with that. A nice, safe job, but I got to the end of my degree and was like ‘maw, I don’t want to be a teacher’ and she was like ‘you want to be a DJ!?’. What do you know about that?”
A native of Kincaidston, Ayr, Ewan graduated from the Primary Education programme in 2016 at UWS Ayr Campus and has quickly become one of the most recognised names in British dance music, performing at Glastonbury, Parklife and Creamfields.
