steve dowling and the obliviates


I gathered the Obliviates together to record songs I'd written that year (2010); I wanted to record them live, which was how it went. ... just decided to keep it going, so we've been out gigging around northern Britain since then. I play solo around Europe, but it's the band I'm pushing for now!


I've just turned 60, so I'm something of a late starter, but what the hell ... my band is average aged 20 years younger but vigour ain't an issue! I've been writing and playing all my life, but only started doing it seriously, playing out, a few years back; solo to start with, but now with the band as well. All the material is new and original, and I'd hope stands up to scrutiny ..."folk noir", but with a soul and blues edge when the band gets hold of it.
