Arno Blok, better known as Publisher is a Dutch alternative electronic artist. He started making music in his home town Rotterdam in 2000. In 2013 Arno moved to Edinburgh, Scotland to work in a new environment. Since his move he released EP ‘Empty Hands’ in 2014 and the single ‘Father’ in 2015. The first 2 years in Edinburgh Arno mainly played solo acoustic or with a band consisting of piano, bass guitar and cajon. Recently Arno started working with a new live setup with lots of different instruments including, electric and acoustic guitar, keyboards, synths, sequencer, sampler, looper, effects and vocals. Arno has always been interested in electronic music as can be heard on his releases. But this live setup makes him able to translate his past and future releases to the stage in a better way. Publisher’s music can be described as mid tempo electronic music with atmospheric guitar playing, soaring vocals, ambient samples, synth bass/pads and drum loops. Influences can be found in Radiohead, Interpol and Foals to name a few. In 2016 Publisher is planning on releasing new music and taking his live show all around Scotland and the rest of the UK.
