Talking about the impending run of shows, Steve said:


“Now seemed like a good time to sort another run of shows out but this time go deeper into some of the places I’ve either never played or have not played in a while. I have formed an elite snatch squad from my band - a 3-piece band made up of drums (Greg), bass (Bodge) and me, we will be performing various songs I have written over the years but mainly from the last 3 albums. Before this recent UK tour, I went around Europe and Scandinavia with just my acoustic guitar and I really enjoyed it so I guess it will be a little like that but with more beef and bottom end thanks to Greg and Bodge. EXPECT US!”


Steve recently released Meet the Humans, histhird solo album following Boys Outside (2010) and Monkey Minds In The Devil’s Time (2013).


The album was recorded with Elbow keyboardist and producer Craig Potter at Blueprint Studios in Salford in the early summer of 2015.


 Meet The Humans’ is available on CD (DS107CD), vinyl (DS107LP) and digitally (DS107D). You can purchase the album via Dom Mart and iTunes.
