Dundalk, County Louth
New Single: “Laces”
Release date: Friday 9th November 2012.
One of Ireland’s most exciting singer songwriters, Stewart Agnew, releases the second single from his highly acclaimed third album, Hello Bright Spark.
The album, peaking at 14 in the Irish charts along with lead single ‘Look How The Stars Turn On’, was a breakthrough radio favourite.
“Bright spark is right…prepare to be impressed” – Tony Clayton-Lea, The Irish Times
With initial writing and pre-production sped along by contributions from Lou Natkin and Paul Wilkinson, Stewart headed into the studio with renowned producer Roger Béchirian (The Undertones, Elvis Costello, Bell X1) taking control of the console, and in a whirlwind of eighteen studio days in the depths of leafy Westmeath, the 10 songs that resulted offer slivers of magic and moments of sublime comfort.
Having just finished a successful acoustic tour of Ireland in collaboration with singer-songwriter SJ McArdle, it's been announced that Stewart has been short listed for the last 4 acts in the Guinness Arthurs Play on The Day, in association with Hotpress and 2FM. He will perform with his band in Whelans on Thursday November 1st 2012, for a chance to get to the National Finals at the end of November. To coincide with this a free and exclusive download of ‘Disconnected’’ featuring Mick Flannery is available from www.stewartagnew.com.
