Much-travelled, much-loved British singer-songwriter Martin Stephenson and his band the Daintees are back with a new career highlight, more than 30 years after Stephenson first emerged as one of our most distinguished performers.

Stephenson’s restless troubadour spirit has now amassed an extraordinary catalogue of 40 albums, and the latest addition is another landmark. ‘Haunted Highway’ which stands as delightful proof that a fifty-something artist can go on getting better and better.

‘Haunted Highway’ oozes all of Martin’s amassed influences, from folk to reggae in one swoop, but with plenty of the style that’s pure Stephenson and no one else. “I just went on a little journey with it,” he says.

“I don’t have huge budgets now, but I like that, it makes you resourceful. Rock ‘n’ roll wasn’t built on huge budgets, so it’s good to have a little bit of pressure. Sometimes if you’ve got huge budgets,” he adds with his trademark understated humour, “you end up sitting in the jacuzzi when you should be playing.”

‘Haunted Highway’ is already being heralded as the Daintees’ finest work since ‘Boat To Bolivia,’ and that’s some comparison. That was the 1986 debut that announced one of the most perceptive songwriters of the day, with a thoughtful, layered sound in an age of excess. The NME said of Stephenson’s song craft that he “builds bridges between love and hate, cradle and grave, folk and pop, past and present.”
Speaking of which, being 2016, it is Boat to Bolivia’s 30th anniversary and Stephenson is currently on a Dansette tour of the uk throughout June & August. The Daintees have also recently completed the re-recording of this mammoth album, in a brand new way which echoes yet enhances the power of the original, they will be released as a double package through Gonzo Media later this year to coincide with a national tour which is being promoted by SJM and takes in some historic venues, two being London’s infamous 100 Club and Glasgow’s renowned King Tutt’s Wah Wah Hut’ where Stephenson was the first artist to perform at it’s opening in the mid 80’s
So lot’s to celebrate and upcoming for Martin Stephenson & the Daintees…
