Inspired by the craftsmanship of songwriters Neil Young, John Martyn & Nick Drake, Hull-born, London-resident Steve Dagleish now performs his original songs, interpretations of 'trad' and modern songs, at folk clubs, music venues and festivals.
In 2015, Steve supported Chris Wood, collaberated with Ranagri and headlined Saltburn Folk Club's 'Original Alternative Concert'. His debut album 'Only Losers Write on Bridges' received extensive airplay on mainstream and digital radio stations.
He toured the UK in Spring 2016 following sell-out London headline gigs with son John Dagleish. Steve played several festivals in the Summer, and released a second album 'Yours for Eternity' following a sell-out London launch.
In 2017, Steve toured with Ranagri in the Spring, played several festivals and sell-out solo concerts up and down the UK and is currently writing a third original album and preparing a 2018 tour.
"Utterly lovely, like an angrier Nick Drake."

"His skill on the guitar is obvious, but listen to the poetry of his lyrics and you'll experience something both passionate and deeply felt. Steve's voice is clear, rounded and inviting, with the strength to carry delicate and serious compositions with delightful resonance and appealing gravitas."

"The audience observed in communal silence as Steve created intricate melodies coupled with an emotive, raw voice to match the meaning of the lyrics. The set came to a close with the title track of Dagleish’s album, and without having to even prompt the crowd, elicited a whole-hearted sing along from everyone. It was a unique feeling of unity that I hadn’t experienced within a music venue before."

"Steve Dagleish performs wonderful acoustic music that has an orchestral undercurrent running through it. His music jumps from earthy everyman folk to ambient orchestral and I likes it. Some people’s music just resonates with you: after enjoying the more acoustic side of Steve’s work, discovering the more orchestral pieces was a really lovely surprise and I’d like to hear more still."
