Steve has toured “Tangled up in Dylan” with the Open Secrets for the past two years.

Songs include Blowing in the Wind, Tangled up in Blue, All Along the Watchtower, Lay Lady Lay and Knocking on Heaven’s Door.
“On my 17th birthday I treated myself to Bob Dylan’s Blood on the Tracks. I didn’t know it then, but this album set me on a road that I am still travelling down today as a musician and songwriter. It has been my pleasure, with Tangled up in Dylan to return to, interpret and honour this great album along with so much else in the Dylan songbook”.
Best known as front man for Americana and the Open Secrets, Steve released his solo album The Age of Plenty in 2011 to critical acclaim on both sides of the Atlantic. It was described as a “warm emotional dream album” by the alt-country forum. Two years later he formed the Open Secrets. Their debut album earned comparisons with the Old Crow Medicine Show from FATEA magazine. “Rain upon the sea” was released in 2015. R2 Magazine described Rain upon the sea as “simply marvellous”.
