For Steve Harley, life on the road is more than just a job - it is almost his life's blood.And with the January 2020 release of the all-acoustic CD, Uncovered, the original Cockney Rebel shows no sign of slowing down.Steve has been playing live shows around the world for over 45 years and the thrill of another night in another place to another audience has not dimmed at all.Uncovered includes a re-recording of Steve's popular song "Love, Compared With You" with a newly composed third verse, plus eleven other songs he's always wanted to perform. The album features Barry Wickens on viola and acoustic guitar, Oli Hayhurst on double bass, Tom Hall on percussion and the Roots Music Legend, Martin Simpson, on guitar.The acoustic sets for 2020 will include songs from the new CD, plus a selection from the vast and eclectic Harley Songbook. Mr Soft, Judy Teen, Sebastian and the legendary Make Me Smile will all be re-produced in the unique acoustic style.Close-Up Culture stated: "It was an intimate night in the presence of a great musician. An individual whose passion for live performance and perfection (it shows in his face) remains undiminished".Rod Stewart, who covered Steve's song "A Friend For Life", describes him as "One of the finest lyricists Britain has produced."MOJO said simply, "Harley creates rock songs that are proud, lyrical and full of yearning". Steve has also been described as "A consummate performer at the top of his game," and this show will bear that out.Steve received a Lifetime Achievement Award for Acoustic Music from the Acoustic Festival of Britain in 2018.
