The Aberdeen star of US talent TV show The Voice is returning home by signing up to local record label, Fat Hippy Records.

Terry McDermott, who came second in the show, is to release an EP with the label – as well as play an exclusive gig at the Lemon Tree.

The singer, originally from Pitmedden in Aberdeenshire, is going to debut his new material Pictures with his new band The Bonfires at the gig on June 16.

Fat Hippy Records took to Facebook to announce the news to fans.

It read: “Friends, we are giddy with excitement to announce we are welcoming Terry McDermott back to Fat Hippy Records!”

The record label added that they were thrilled to hear McDermott had chosen to return to Fat Hippy to release the new EP after beginning his music career with the label ten years previously.

Terry released music with former band Driveblind on the label, before moving to North America in 2003.

After the group disbanded he applied for The Voice US and wowed audiences around the world with his rock-tinged vocals.

A spokesman for Fat Hippy said: “Following his success on The Voice USA Terry could have chosen almost any record label in the world to work with.

“We are all very lucky he chose to come back to his roots and help the people who helped him at the start of his journey, this EP will undoubtedly bring a huge amount of international attention to Aberdeen and its music.”

He added: “I hope you’ll all be with us to give Terry the huge welcome home he deserves as a long time ambassador of the vibrant Aberdeen music scene!”

Tickets for the June 16 gig are available from the Ticketmaster website.
