‘Steve Pilgrim is the music industry’s best kept secret. He’s an exceptional songwriter’ – Dylan Jones (Editor in Chief) – GQ Magazine
Steve Pilgrim is an artist and musician with over 15 years global touring experience. Starting out as a drummer with Liverpool ‘Bandwagon’ band The Stands (alongside bands like The Coral and The Zutons), Steve went on to play with John Power and Cast, and over the last 12 years has been a central part of Paul Weller’s touring band, sharing the stage with the likes of Noel Gallagher, Corrine Bailey-Rae and Tom Jones (to name a few).
As a solo artist and singer-songwriter he’s produced five studio albums, receiving the praise of fellow musicians and critics alike. The material sits proudly in the song-writing idiom of the acoustic folk/pop artists of the 60s while exploring the challenges of living and loving in the 21st century. Steve’s songs are simultaneously celebratory and melancholy, intimate and honest, bringing into focus the struggles we all face and the humility that unites us.
“One of the great understated modern songsmiths. I love Pilgrims voice, his lyrics, his sense of melody. I hope people get to hear his music, it’s really something special” – Paul Weller
“A soulful ache of a voice and a brave wide-open lyrical stance…” Rob Fitzpatrick (Word Magazine)
Seafoam Green are Irish songwriting duo Dave O’Grady and Muireann McDermott Long. The pair specialise in what we now call Americana. If you want blues, gospel, and folk, they’ve got it, but what they’ve actually perfected across two albums and countless live shows is the sound of a glorious rock n’ soul revival. Seafoam Green even find room for a dash of Dublinese, just to remind people where they’re coming from. Heavy hitters like Rich Robinson, Derek Trucks, and Tyler Greenwell have all chipped in, and it’s not hard to hear why, for this is thrilling, vital, and – that word again – soulful music.”
