mr.K first encountered wonderful British folk artist, Steve Pledger some months back now when he became one of our twitter followers and suggested a track from his debut album ’14 Good Intentions’ which we might like to consider for broadcast. mr.K followed it up and clicked on the track that Steve recommended. Well, one track was not enough for mr.K! For the rest of the evening he had Steve’s debut album on loop. The album shifted from heartfelt and reflective personal observations to protest songs delivered with such compassion and power underpinned by amazing lyricism that mr.K found it difficult to select just one song for his weekly social media followers segment with Gayle. Since then, we’ve played Steve’s songs a few times and have been keeping a close eye on all things Steve Pledger : his solo performances and his tours with fellow folk artist, the award winning, Ange Hardy.
With the release of Steve’s new album ‘Striking Matches In The Wind’ and its upcoming launch, what better time than now to have a chat with Steve on the Curved!
Join us on the Curve this weekend, when Gayle chats live with Steve Pledger and plays tracks from the new album in our 187th edition … oh … and go buy it. Its a cracker!
