Having played guitar since his teens, Steve Gifford worked the London music scene for over 7 years in the 1980s. He soon found that with the help of three top music agencies and self discipline he was kept gigging virtually full-time. He met Karen, his wife, after a Kinks gig at Alexandra Palace, North London, and decided to commit himself wholly to family life.
Steve may have thought his performing and writing days were over; however, this was far from the truth. In 2001, while the family settled into the rural back garden of Woburn Abbey, Steve wrote ten new songs in quick succession, helped along by his newly acquired Martin acoustic guitar. The resulting debut album ‘Cut and Run’ came out in September 2002 re-igniting Steve’s musical career and including a joint album promotion with Mike Silver at the Union Chapel in Islington in October 2003.
Steve’s second album, ‘” Building Bridges “ was released in March 2005, following that up with a third, “Boy On A Beach” a couple of years later. His next album “Ungodly Hour” came out in 2010 and the latest “Berdeset came out in 2014
