On the 12th December 2012, Ewan Robertson sadly passed away at the age of 27. He was an exceptionally talented artist and released his own music on the Big Dada label. Ewan was also involved in the visual art component of the label and established his own design studio called Oscar & Ewan. He was most memorable to his family and friends for his truly humble, subtle and kind soul, disarmingly cheeky humour and gentle nature.
Months after Ewan's passing, his family discovered that he had produced an album's worth of musical material that had not yet seen the light of day. Music had been a huge passion of Ewan and so his family decided it would be a fitting tribute to him if they were to release his final piece of music in August 2015. An album launch night was held in London to mark the release of the record and was attended by several hundred people. A live set of tracks from the album was performed on the night by his former band mates. Several DJs and artists took their turn to play tracks in honour of him. The launch night in London was a huge success. This led to a similar event being held in Ewan’s home town of Aberdeen.
All the money raised from ticket, t-shirt and album sales, as well as any other donations, was donated to the Marfan Trust. In total Ewan's family helped raise £2000. For those involved, this was a perfect way to celebrate Ewan’s unique talent and to know that his music was helping raise funds for others affected by Marfan Syndrome. Ewan’s family would like to thank all of those who helped make this project possible, as well as everyone who attended the events in London and Aberdeen
