Steve Pledger is an award-winning recording artist with an enviable reputation as a talented and dynamic performer. BBC Introducing have called his music “beautiful, authentic, unblemished and wonderful”. With writing that ranges from fragile reflections on love and loss to blistering commentaries on present circumstances, his songs pack an emotional punch, both on record and on stage.
Following on from his 2012 debut album -‘14 Good Intentions’ – April 2015 saw Steve release its follow-up, ‘Striking Matches In The Wind’, which according to R2 Magazine’s 4* review is “Authentically expressed in a voice with genuine appeal… a direct route to the heart.”and was announced as Album Of The Year by FATEA, as well as by FolkWords in the Male Solo Artist category.
