Music.

While working on the Sports Unit at BBC Radio Oxford soon after his 15th birthday Stuart became friends with the country music DJ, Graham Rowe and worked on his programme for three years.  After Graham's sad death at the age of 34 Stuart was asked to present the country show with singer Ellie Scott, aged 18, making him the youngest country presenter in Britain.

Stuart was also involved in promoting events. The Radio Oxford Country Music Festival was the first as well as a couple of concerts with Stu Stevens & Orchestra. The Golden Greats Festival featuring The Fortunes, Marmalade, The Bootleg Beatles, Dave Dee, Dozy, Beaky, Mick & Tich and The Tremeloes was very successful, as were other concerts featuring the World's Greatest Blues Brothers Show starring Jake & Elwood and a series of "Teenage Rampage" Festivals with the likes of Boyzone, Peter Andre, 911 and others.

By this time he was writing songs and recording music including his first release, "I Was Sure We Could've Made It", which appeared on a compilation album called "Silver Heart Country" in 1988, a collection of locally produced country music tracks from acts signed to his own Silver Heart label.

A follow up six track 12-inch e.p. was released one year later which featured another Stuart original, "How Did You Change Your Mind." His early tracks were produced with Dave Buswell in Syston, Leicestershire in England, and he would also produce records for other acts. A single was released in 1993 called "Yellow Rose" - a duet with Australian singer Nikki Ryan - and received plenty of country music airplay. 

Stuart then created a character called Steve Sherrick for a rock release. He needed a new identity to accompany the release so completely changed his image and released a single in 1995 on Silver Heart which was a cover of the T.Rex classic "I Love To Boogie" and David Essex's "Rock On" and he performed both sides on stage at the Apollo Theatre, Oxford and the Derngate in Northampton as well as The Liverpool Empire Theatre as support to Boyzone and Peter Andre. Two Harley Davidson bykes accompanied him on stage along with pyrotechnics for an explosive opening to the shows. Rare footage of the Oxford show can be seen here.

He met up with rock guitarist, writer and producer Tony May, and they formed a successful production team. Their eclectic musical interests produced some interesting results.

Stuart and Tony worked on a Prism Leisure compilation album called "5678" which featured well known acts like Steps and the Bellamy Brothers. This CD aimed at the linedance market was put together by Stuart, with Tony and him recording a number of tracks for the album under various guises including a re-make of "Hooked On Country" under the banner The Tennessee Country Orchestra using a mixture of real and synthetic instruments.

That led to an unusual project. The record label had brought out a successful "Adults Only" album a few months before and in 1997 booked Tony and Stuart to come up with a second volume of outrageous tunes.  The whiter-than-white pair jumped at the chance and the despicable alter-egos known as The Sherrick Brothers were born.  Stuart already had the character of Steve Sherrick while Tony became Ricky and the album was incredibly successful, selling very well across Europe. 

The album was musically excellent but the lyrics were decidedly dodgy!  "Steve Sherrick was a complete opposite to my personality - the pantomime villain if you like."

The Sherrick Brothers album was banned everywhere but had a cult following and to this day it's become a much sought-after item which has been released in three different versions, including under the name "Dirty Line Dancing." The most commercial track from the album was released as a single in its full offensive glory. "Roch Lomond."

Tony and Stuart went out live with a band called 48 Crash playing rock covers and originals at some prestigious venues, and they co-produced and sang on a fantastic soul album by Jake & Elwood - the "Classic Blues Brothers" album - again for the Prism Leisure label - but when Stuart moved to Scotland in 2000 the partnership was put on hold.

Just before the move Stuart was part of an album called "Pack Of Three - Volume 2" with British acts Heartfield and Bob Diamond.  Stuart recorded under the name Scott Perry for this project and his contribution was seven songs.

With Tony based in Worcestershire nothing new was recorded for 12 years. Stuart chose 18 songs from his back catalogue and released them on an album called "Eclectic" featuring originals like "Invisible Lines" (which was nominated for British Country Song of the Year) and his cover of one of his all-time favourite ballads, "It's You", originally a hit for Freddie Starr.

The "Eclectic" title fits the collection perfectly as the styles are wide ranging, and the iTunes and Amazon versions of the album feature no less than 22 bonus cuts on there, making a 40 track anthology. The release draws a line under Stuart's recording work from the last century!
