Martin Stephenson + The Daintees

Music |

Doors 7.30pm | Tickets £20.50 | Theatre | On sale 2 February at 10am

Inspired by early Cure and the Brighton scene, Martin began his career as a busker at age 15 . He then spent three years plying his trade as a guitar player in various bands in the North East of England. But Martin wanted more, he wanted to tell stories of his own and he was quickly developing ways of doing just that.

He developed his song-writing technique by Firstly learning a few licks from a Spanish guitar book and repeating the process with Jazz, Blues, Country, SkifFle, Reggae etc. Eventually, this glorious collision of styles would become the trademark which Martin has carried through his career of almost 40 years.

Martin formed his band The Daintees, who became a busking sensation and were signed by Kitchenware at around the same time as Prefab Sprout and Hurrah! The band and indeed Martin have always been known for their incredible range of styles, each album covering a multitude of genres, tempos and moods.

In the early days of The Daintees, the band toured with the likes of Aztec Camera and The Bluebells. In 1985 , they became Roy Buchannan’s backing band on a month long tour of Europe and the following year joined John Martyn on his ‘Piece by Piece ‘tour. As a solo artist , Martin also toured around this time with such artists as Hothouse Flowers and Janice Ian.
