Stranger Comes to Town
The legendary Steve Harley returns with his first new studio album in five years. The iconic singer/songwriter who first enjoyed hits in the Seventies with ‘Judy Teen’ and ‘Make Me Smile, Come Up And See Me’ has ten brand new songs on a CD that he describes as ‘a labour of love’. ‘Stranger Comes To Town’ was recorded at a residential studio in East Anglia and features Harley backed by his regular touring band.
A founder member of Cockney Rebel, Steve started his career as a trainee newspaper reporter before becoming a singer. He was inspired by his favourite artists such as Bob Dylan and the Beatles as well as the poets and authors he read as a child. In recent years he has returned to ‘live’ performances with Cockney Rebel and his devoted fans are eagerly awaiting the new album. Among the highlights are such stand out songs as ‘Faith And Virtue’, ‘Take The Men And The Horses Away’, the poignantly titled ‘For Sale, Baby Shoes, Never Worn’ and ‘2,000 Years From Now’.
As one of the UK’s most respected composers, with a literary approach to lyric writing, Steve Harley brings lustre to pop music and is certainly no stranger to fame. Welcome back to town!
