Event Details

Babybird is an odd one, deceptively sweet and cute in name, but
happily for Stephen Jones, hides something darker growing
inside the fluffy yellow. Imagine the David Lynch Blue Velvet
mechanical bird.
Musical life started with the mid 90s with his lo-fi years,
consisting of five Stephen Jones solo albums I WAS BORN A
MAN through to DYING HAPPY – a life cycle, released in a
nine month period.
This already, set him apart from the indie britpop world. Then
an album and single went gold, Stephen was hounded and
heckled out of Manchester for being that ‘bleeding gorgeous
bloke’, to settle in London, and four band studio albums
followed.
Then with the recent help of Johnny Depp he recorded two
albums in LA and the video “Unloveable” (see it on youtube).
His song THE F-WORD has featured on 13 series of the
Gordon Ramsey show of the same name. He has music featured
on DomJoly’s Trigger happy, Vic and Bob shows, on Paul and
Bob’s gone fishing show. And most recently a Babybird song
has featured on the Margot Robbie produced movie Saltburn.
In the last 10 years he had a heart attack whilst releasing over
150 albums on the phenomenal site that is Bandcamp, giving
him complete freedom outside of the music business, to persist
and meddle.
It cannot be stressed enough, how extremely unusual this all is.
