“This is lovely stuff. You can hear all the love that’s gone into it”
Steve's gigs in Scotland this year will take a slightly different format. Instead of the usual big summer trip, Steve will be doing two shorter tours, one in July and the other in October. We have four shows confirmed so far including a welcome return to Irvine Folk Club and the An Crubh Venue on the Isle of Skye. We expect more to be announced in the next few weeks. All the details can be found on the Gigs page.
So nice to be included on not one, not two, but three Spotify playlists ... thanks to Easy-to- listen Country Inspired for listing 'To The Saint Of Lost Causes'
'To The Saint Of Lost Causes' has been included on this COFFEEHOUSE HITS playlist too ... whoopie! You have to scroll down a little but it is there.
The third playlist for 'To The Saint Of Lost Causes' is Roadie Music's Folk and Country Road playlist. Tracks tend to stay on these playlist for between two weeks and two months. There is so much music out there, it's almost impossible to keep up!!
First released in 1989 on vinyl and cassette Steve's debut album has been remixed and remastered and will soon be available on CD and on all digital platforms through Proper Music Distribution. Steve and producer Dave Maughan have taken the record apart and put it back together again adding a few little touches and doing a bit of tidying up! The result is a collection of songs that still shine after all these years.
There will also be a bonus CD featuring a number of songs that were standard in Steve's 'live' shows around that time and some songs that were recorded for a follow up album that took a little longer than expected. As a consequence these songs have not seen the light of day until now.
We will let you have further information including a release date and pre-order details as soon as we have them confirmed.
Big thanks to Tilly for including Steve's song 'Recovery' on her Acoustic Unexpected playlist. The song is taken from Steve's 'Hope Street' EP and this is not the first time it has made it on to a Spotify playlist. Check the playlist out, there's some good stuff there including a tune from Tilly herself.
It's always nice to get this kind of recognition, long may it continue. In case you missed it there's a video on YouTube too, take a look.
Always more than the sum of its parts - I love to collaborate with other musicians, creatives and artists on all types of creative projects.FIND OUT MORE
