Get to know Stevie
Stevie’s firefighter mates actually applied for him to audition without telling him (and now that he's our 2015 Voice UK Winner we’d like to extend a very big thanks from all of us at The Voice!). As a part-time singer he’s played some pretty epic gigs, including T in the Park, The Wickerman Festival, the BBC Introducing stage, and he’s supported The Bare Naked Ladies at the O2 Academy in Glasgow, to over 2000 people! He even has his own song lyric tattooed on his arm which reads: “I hope I’m not too old before I figure it out.” Nice touch, Stevie!
