Stevie Agnew is a Scottish-based singer/songwriter.

After relentless gigging, Stevie has built up a massive local following and has been invited to play many high profile gigs that have included support slots with the Stereophonics, Status Quo and Nazareth as well as an appearance at the famous Glasgow Barrowland.

Stevie was inspired in his chosen career by his father Pete Agnew of rock legends Nazareth. Stevie got his first guitar for his 6th birthday and hasn’t stopped playing since.

Stevie was hooked early on rock ‘n’ roll and in particular, Bruce Springsteen.

For the past 20 years, Stevie has gigged relentlessly around his native Scotland, playing and singing solo and for many different bands.

His debut album was ‘Wreckin’ Yard’ which was written with drummer Chris Smith. ‘Wreckin’ Yard’ features 13 original Americana story songs. The musicianship is superb and the lyrics are poetic and considered.

The album has a distinct Country Blues feel with guitars, harmonica, fiddles, banjos, pedal steel and Dobro; there are also two wonderful duets and a fishing tale for good measure.
