Martin Stephenson

The great thing about Martin Stephenson — hang on, let’s start that again — One of the great things about Martin Stephenson is that you never quite know what he’s going to say next. Take these enlightening examples from a recent chinwag with the much-travelled, much-loved singer-songwriter and frontman of his band the Daintees.

“When I was 11 I got put on a spiritual programme. I was a table tennis player. I had this gift for table tennis that I didn’t have with music.” “I do these things called awayday albums, for people who are struggling, but talented. They’re at a studio in Darlington with this bloke who’s like the Salvador Dali of rockabilly.” “I learned to play ‘Apache’ last week. I’m 52.”

There is rarely a dull moment in conversation with Stephenson, but that’s exactly what you’d hope from someone who’s never stood still during 35 years in love with music. For him, it’s not a career, it’s a lifetime calling, and his restless troubadour spirit has now amassed an extraordinary catalogue of 40 albums.
