Last night during a 2-hour special on Blues & Roots Radio, the winners of the Fatea Awards 2015 were announced and Steve was the lucky recipient of the Male Vocalist of the Year. The awards are nominated by the Fatea team and recognise excellence over 2015.
2015 was certainly a memorable one for Steve including walking the red carpet with Al Pacino at the premier of the Hollywood movie Danny Collins. The release of his fabulous album Truth to Tell. A successful first Tilston & Lowe UK tour, brilliant new collaboration with Jez Lowe. Then to cap it all off to hear he’d been shortlisted in the Fatea Awards… and then the winner!
