Steve Pilgrim & Astles

Please note this is an 18+ event


Steve Pilgrim is an artist and musician with over 15 years global touring experience. Starting out as a drummer with Liverpool ‘Bandwagon’ band The Stands (alongside bands like The Coral and The Zutons), Steve went on to play with John Power and Cast.

As a solo artist and singer-songwriter he’s produced five studio albums, receiving the praise of fellow musicians and critics alike. The material sits proudly in the song-writing idiom of the acoustic folk/pop artists of the 60s while exploring the challenges of living and loving in the 21st century. Steve’s songs are simultaneously celebratory and melancholy, intimate and honest, bringing into focus the struggles we all face and the humility that unites us.

Over the last 12 years has been touring as part of Paul Wellers band, providing vocal, acoustic and drums, and sharing the stage with the likes of Noel Gallagher, Corrine Bailey-Rae and Tom Jones (to name a few).

“Steve Pilgrim is the music industry’s best kept secret. He’s an exceptional songwriter” Dylan Jones – GQ Magazine

“One of the great understated modern songsmiths. I love Pilgrims voice, his lyrics, his sense of melody.  I hope people get to hear his music, it’s really something special” Paul Weller

“A soulful ache of a voice and a brave wide-open lyrical stance…”  Rob Fitzpatrick – Word Magazine


Astles is an artist who seeks the grandiose in the bare necessities, an artist who tells tales of the human condition in wistful soft focus, an artist worthy of your attention. Described as ‘gorgeous, lilting indie’ by the NME, Astles recently signed to leading Liverpool independent collective Eggy Records and has spent the lockdown hours recording a series of songs under the direction of Bill Ryder-Jones. Before the world changed: the world changed for Astles. After the loss of his beloved, music obsessive, uncle, Astles inherited a treasure trove of mixtapes that exposed him to the hope and possibility contained within the popular song. Today, Astles songwriting celebrates the outsider and the refuge of music to a young lad in the North West, surrounded by football-focussed men and machismo to which his music is the perfect and subtle antidote.
