One Bloke One Mandolin
Having toured and performed at festivals around Europe with Kane & Co. and Cactus Jack and gigged and recorded in the US during the late 90s into the early 2000s these days Stevie is pretty much what it says on the tin live, One Bloke One Mandolin (well two really) playing a whole bunch of original Folk n’ Country songs.
As well as gigging regularly in the UK and with tours on the continent, he’s played at Bearded Theory, Beautiful Days, Watchet, Red Rooster, Acoustic Festival of Britain, Wickham, Secret Wigit , many Something Else festivals, Weyfest, Americana, Westport Folk & Bluegrass Festival (Ireland), Pullman City Bavaria Country Music Festival (Germany) and Akaciju aleja Bardus Festivalis (Lithuania) and a fair few more.
With six studio albums to his name, his latest being Fair Travels & Fine Times released in September 2017 containing twelve tracks of original Folk n’ Country music, Stevie is now working on a bunch of new songs for his next album.
‘There is a passion and intensity to Stevie’s music that explores the deepest depths and nuances of any material he cares to play’ – Barrie Dimond, Festivals For All
‘His ability as a storyteller in song as well as between songs was similar to Vin Garbutt.’ – Kevin White, Moonshine Magazine
‘Stevie, One Bloke One Mandolin beguiled The Woodland Stage (at Bearded Theory) with his acoustic loveliness.’ – Get Ready To Rock
‘Think Tom Waits crossed with Steve Earle and add a touch of Johnny Cash. Like those wonderful artists Simpson is first and foremost a storyteller and that voice tells the story of his life. You can hear the joy, the pain, the good times and bad’ – Alan Ewart, Louder Than War
