A BORDERS band has just taken a major step forward as they released their first single last month.

Dylan Paterson, a three-piece band shared their new song, 'Little Wonder' on iTunes and Spotify on February 28 and are starting to build a reputation as ones to watch in the region.

Little Wonder was debuted at a show the band had at Marmions Place, Melrose where the audience enjoyed the trio's melodic, rock sound.

And in true rock band style, Dylan Paterson made the effort to meet fans in the crowd after their set, speaking with them and signing autographs, a sign of great things to come.

Dylan told us: “It was a magnificent gig and a great way to launch the single.

"So much hard work has gone into this and we really appreciate everyone’s support.

"We hope this is just the first step on a long and wonderful journey.”

Despite only beginning their musical careers in September last year, the band has already performed in some notable Borders venues as well as in Edinburgh and Glasgow.

The popularity of their original songs mean the group's calendar has already started to fill up with event bookings.

To catch Dylan Paterson live, they have a performances planned for Melrose Sevens from April 9, Maroon'd at Gala on April 14, MacArts on June 20 as well as returning to Marmions Place on Friday, April 3.
