Martin Stephenson - Solo Tour
Tue 6 November 2012
Martin is an outstanding singer and songwriter, whose career in music now stretches back over thirty years of critical acclaim and relentless touring.
Martin was initially fired up to play in a band when the punk rock phenomenon went over ground in the late 1970's. Then as now, Martins free spirit incorporated a love for an eclectic range of musical styles, from Zappa & Beefheart, through Rockabilly, old time string music to straight-ahead rock and full tilt punk.
He convened his band The Daintees in the early 80's with the name deliberately chosen as a response to the humourlessness and angst of much of the music of the time. Their debut single, Roll On Summertime was a sparkling and charming affair that announced the arrival of a considerable new talent.
Lengthy bouts of touring saw the band gain a reputation as a fantastic live act and cemented a loyal fan base which remains with him today.
Martin was constantly gaining heightened credibility as one of the Uk's cutting edge and most uncompromising songwriters .
After kicking against the commercial constraints of the mainstream music industry, Martin relocated to the highlands of Scotland.
The new MS & the Daintees album 'California Star will be tied in with this national tour ...and this is an opportunity to see Martin in solo mode.
