Stevie King interview

Stevie King

Meet super talented artist Stevie King who’s about to release his debut single on the 18th August.

The Ecuador-born, UK-based talent showcases his hypnotic songwriting skills on the yearning and enchanting first release which clearly marks him out as one to watch.
Recorded at London’s Metropolis Studios, the track’s mature and delicately plotted sound – calling to mind the likes of The War On Drugs and Midlake – shows what riches are to come from the 21-year-old. With its restrained riff and the driving rhythm of the chorus, Stevie paints a picture of a life spinning out of control.
