Award-winning singer/song-writer and guitarist
The story of Steve’s “lost” letter from John Lennon inspired the Hollywood movie Danny Collins starring Al Pacino in the title role, now available on DVD.
Steve was honoured as the Fatea Awards Male Vocalist of the Year 2015, proof if needed, that after 45 years in the business he can still deliver the goods; His CD Truth to Tell was also one of The Telegraph’s best folk albums of 2015 too.
Released July 2018… Distant Days offers pared-back voice and guitar recording; nineteen tracks – solo acoustic recollections or musical markers in the diary, chosen largely by public selection, plus a trio of previously unrecorded tunes.
“If there was any justice Steve Tilston would be a national treasure” – Acoustic
“It has been 42 years since Steve Tilston released his much-praised debut, An Acoustic Confusion (Rod Stewart apparently ordered a box of the albums), and it remains a mystery as to why he is not far better known today. He is, after all, a fine and thoughtful songwriter and singer and a remarkable guitarist” – The Guardian ****
“As singer-songwriter-guitarist he remains one of this country’s finest” – fROOTS
