A great indie/folk/acoustic type set by Stuart on his 4th Album. All the way from London.

900 shows in 4 years and counting...

I went full time in 2006 quitting the day job and buying a van. Before I knew what was going on, I had been full time for 4 years and in that time had played over 900 shows.

My self managed schedule seems to have many wondering how I do it, but I believe a lot of my motivation comes from my creative freedom, my friends, and the people I meet whilst doing what I do.

3 tours in Japan, New Zealand and Australia, as well as numerous months on the road in my home country of the UK; have helped my carve a living and hone my live show, and I now have 3 albums under my belt (2 of which have sold out and had to be re-pressed, which makes me feel all fluffy and smug). Sometimes people find it hard to categorise my music, but if I had to pigeon-hole it (and I’ve very quickly learned that I do) I would say I’m a psychedelic folk singer/songwriter.

I’ve stubbornly (or stupidly) defied record labels, turning down multiple offers to remain fully independent and in creative and professional control of everything I do. So far it’s working, and I’m enjoying every second of the ride.

Thank you to everyone who’s given me their support so far. I’m genuinely grateful for every kind word, musical note, or sofa.

Stuart.
