Following the release of his acclaimed third album, Busy Guy, last year, Stephen Fretwell is playing a headline show at Whelan's, Dublin on August 25. To celebrate, we're offering you the chance to win a pair of tickets...
Fretwell grew up in Scunthorpe but cut his musical teeth in Manchester in the early noughties, playing in the bars and clubs of the legendary Northern Quarter.
His debut album Magpie, was released on a major record label in 2004 and sold 100,000 copies. In 2007 he released his follow-up, Man On the Roof, for which he received an Ivor Novello Award nomination. Fretwell went on to support the likes of Travis, Elbow, Keane and Oasis, and in 2008, played bass for The Last Shadow Puppets.
Fretwell’s best-known song is perhaps ‘Run’, which features on the credits of BBC1’s hit sitcom Gavin and Stacey.
His latest album, Busy Guy, was released on Dan Carey's Speedy Wunderground label. Described by Fretwell as “a song cycle of sorts,” Busy Guy examines the seasons of a life – exploring fatherhood, grief and rebirth, with Fretwell’s trademark eloquence and wit.
