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.
Considered one of the most charismatic Live performers at work today, the original Cockney Rebel tours with a full 6-piece rock band and also fronts the Steve Harley Acoustic Band.
Music is very much still his first love. “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!” Harley said recently.
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.
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.
Recent critical acclaim has included such comments such as “A consummate professional at the top of his game” and “I doubt there was a better gig anywhere in the world last night. Seriously” – Daily Mail reporter.
Rod Stewart, who has covered Steve’s song A Friend For Life, describes him as “One of the greatest lyricists Britain has produced.” Mojo commented: “Harley creates songs of deep beauty, full of life’s experiences” and The Times wrote: “An extraordinary concert”.
