Teesside’s music scene is about to get a taste of eclectic folk music as Stockton prepares to welcome Steve Pledger for the first time.
The Cambridgeshire-born singer-songwriter will head to Whole Latte Love, located on Bridge Street, which has been making waves since first opening in the town back in September.
Heavily influenced by the likes of Elvis, Bruce Springsteen, Graham Parker, Cat Stevens, Sam Cook and Rush, to name just a few, Steve Pledger first came into prominence during the latter part of 2011, receiving huge support through BBC Introducing.
His debut album, ’14 Good Intentions’, saw him establish himself as an artist of melodic authenticity, with Steve fast becoming known for his beautifully poetic lyrical style that packs an emotional punch both live and on record.
Since then, Steve has gone on to release two more studio albums with the most recent offering, ‘Somewhere Between’, receiving huge critical acclaim, especially regarding its fascinating and thought-provoking lyrics that has seen him compared to the likes of the legendary Ewan McColl and Billy Bragg – and even led to an FATEA Album of the Year award.
He has also gone on to complete several sold out UK headline tours and has collaborated with a number of folk artists. This latest tour, which will see him head to Stockton for the first time, follows his recent outing at Bar Loco in Newcastle.
Steve Pledger will play Whole Latte Love in Stockton on Friday 9th February. This is a free entry event with proceedings starting at 9:00pm.
