STU STEVENS TV TRIBUTE
Stu Stevens - The Voice - was one of Britain's greatest
original singer-songwriters, who enjoyed an incredible
music journey over the years. He was born in Annesley
Woodhouse, Kirkby-in-Ashfield, Nottinghamshire, England
under the name Wilfrid Pearce on 25th September 1936 and
died at the age of 79 on 13th June 2016.
Record contracts with EMI Columbia, MCA, Young Blood, Granite and a
number of other influential labels gave him airplay
all over the world, and on BBC Radio 2 his single "The
Man From Outer Space"
months of exposure including the Terry Wogan Show which
championed his cause.
Although not breaking through on the national pop charts
in the UK, Stu had hits all over the world with
songs of the calibre of "Hello Pretty Lady", "When I
Dream" and "Call My Name."
His rich deep voice sent women into a trance and he
built up a massive following. His concerts were
sell-outs and he appeared with large orchestras all
over Britain. Television appearances and live work on
some of the biggest stages in the world raised his
profile even more, and Stu's best ever release "The Voice" CD featuring many of his
greatest records attracted a lot of interest. "The
Voice - Volume 2" came out in March 2017 as a
digital download containing 40
tracks including the whole of his live concert at
Oxford's Apollo Theatre in 1980 and the best of the rest
of his back catalogue as well as some rarities including
a song he sang at the age of 79, which would turn out to
be his final single, "And The Grass Won't Pay No Mind."
Also available on DVD is the
long forgotten "The Man And His Music" video - a 90
minute slice of nostalgia from 1985 featuring live
performances and candid footage.
In his later years he recorded four albums including a
gospel collection but devoted his life to working on the
sheep farm he owned with his wife Elizabeth.
In March 2019 a boxed set of 4 CDs, two of them
previously unavailable on CD, was released representing
great value for just £11.99 for the set, which you can
here. As well as featuring "The Voice" and "Still
Standing" it also contains "The Voice Volume 2"
featuring the best of the rest of his recordings plus
the legendary 1980 concert at the New Theatre, Oxford.
