"Pure Pop For Now People..."
...that's probably the best way to describe the sound of Stephen's Ruin. Six young friends who love to make music together. Together with two guitars, Hammond, bass and whipping drums, Paul, Jan, Luca, Lukas, Max and Elias give their all on stage!
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.
In May 2023, Stephen's Ruin had the honour of performing twice at the legendary Cavern Club in Liverpool. In addition, there was a gig at the Cavern Pub.
Fronted by charismatic, engaging vocalist Paul Desmond Leech, the band is comprises two guitars, Hammond organ, bass and drums, played by Jan, Philipp, Lukas, Max and Elias. (from Denis Goodbody)
