"Pure Pop For Now People..."

Since the release of their debut album “Never Too Late” in 2018, Stephen’s Ruin’s infectiously bright and energetic pure pop sound has been making toes tap and bringing smiles to faces.

Songs from the album have been played on independent radio stations around the world, from Australia to Columbia, from the USA to Poland. So far, live performances have been confined to Europe but who knows where the second album will lead. They have shared billing with - among others - "The Lightning Seeds", "French Boutik", "Trouble Pilgrims" (ex Radiators) and "The Porters", at gigs in Dublin, Drogheda, Blyth, London, Manchester and around their hometown of Düsseldorf.

Drawing on the energy of punk, surf and rock, Stephen’s Ruin’s short, powerful, energetic and well crafted songs aren’t afraid to salute their influences as they create their own unique and distinctive sound.

Fronted by charismatic, engaging vocalist Paul Desmond Leech, the band is comprises two guitars, Hammond organ, bas and drums, played by Jan, Philipp, Lukas, Max and Elias. (from Denis Goodbody)
