I will be releasing Milk Man Son on May 25th, I am aiming to raise the money it will cost to print the CD. The CD has already been recorded

by Stew Simpson in Banks, England, United Kingdom

New stretch target

I will book a tour and be able to subsidize my travel without worrying about 

wether the club I will be playing at can afford to pay my expenses. I will be able to pay the webdesigner who is currently working on my website I may even be able to make a real music video.

It has been 15 years since Singer/songwriter Stew Simpson (40) (Frontman for Hadrian’s Union) recorded his first solo album (The Best of ... Yet To Come). Stew’s  performance will be celebrating the release of his brand new album 'Milk Man Son’.

Without the framework of Hadrian's Union, Stew has allowed himself to explore different sides of his journey into folk music using his roots in traditional mining songs from the North East of England, from his previous show Hyem through to such Folk and Rock cross over songs by Led Belly/Nirvana, (Where did you sleep last night) and to his more outrageous surrealist poetry.

With titles such as 'There's an eyeball in my dragon soup' and 'The Fangle Dooble Dozer'  lovers of Ivor Cutler and Edward Lear will be able to see the influence in the spoken word  which features on 'Milk Man Son' 

Stew's show is eclectic, raw and real, with the ideals of a punk, some sweet guitar picking and with the aid of a tank top of a 70 year old shanty enthusiast, audiences are promised to be moved to tears, some of them will be of joy. The rest may just come from the sheer disgust at the Faire Isle Pattern jumper and retro moustache. A true English Eccentric.


A note from me : I need your help to make Milk Man Son a reality. This is your opportunity to be part of the music,

you will be helping keep my music alive and it won't just be buying a CD of someone's music that you like but because of you, others may find relief and joy through the words and songs of one of the folk worlds more interesting characters. If I do say so myself ;)

Thank you for your time and if you want to know more about me or Hadrian's Union (my band) check out
