Steve Harley celebrates his 47th year in music in 2020 and continues to play concerts around the world. He says that playing live is more than a job, it’s almost his life’s blood.
“We see the world and play to great audiences; how good is that! I see great cities and their galleries and museums in our down-time, beautiful landscapes from the Arctic Circle to the Mediterranean coast, all in my life as a touring musician. It’s still the greatest job on earth!” he said recently.
Steve was awarded a Gold Badge of Merit by the British Academy of Songwriters, and a Lifetime Achievement Award for Acoustic Music by the British Festival of Acoustic Music in 2018.
The live shows include the big hit singles, like Judy Teen, Mr Soft, Love’s A Prima Donna, the legendary Sebastian, as well as the evergreen Make Me Smile (Come Up And See Me). That song is noted by PRS as one of the most-played songs in history on British Radio and this year it is 45 years old!
