Steve kept himself busy during lockdowns writing and planning, not one but two releases. Calling a few favours from some very talented musicians he’s managed to put together an EP under the Paradise Alley banner and release a solo album.

For over thirty years now Steve Vincent has been no stranger to the underground rock’n’roll scene, First as a member of Glasgow Glamsters Indian Angel before decamping to London where after a brief tenure fronting Scarlet Tears, Steve put together his own band, Paradise Alley. After two albums, multiple tours all over the planet flirting with both success and disaster, a brief name change to Neon Bomb and then a return to the scene in 2019 with the ‘Class Of 92’ single, Vincent finally decided to dip his toe in the solo water.

What started as demo sessions for songs to submit to Paradise Alley soon morphed into a full-blown album’s worth of music. Nine songs were written solely by Steve with a tenth co-written with longtime friend Miqu December from Plastic Tears, these ten songs come together on the debut solo album Recovered From My Past due on Bombshell Records in August 2022.

Influenced by classic rock’n’roll from Little Richard to The Sweet, The New York Dolls to Lords Of The New Church, The Chesterfield Kings to The Ramones, the album covers all bases.

While Steve provides vocals, harmonica, guitars, bass and drum programming on the album, he is joined by an enviable guest list of musicians with Andy Christie (Swamp Born Assassins) (guitars) heading things up on several songs with the other lead guitars being provided by Steve Conte (New York Dolls/Michael Monroe), Mattias Johannson (Trench Dogs), Alex Holmes (Suicide Notes), Ben Marsden (The Spangles/Main Grains) and Rhoades D’ablo (Los Swamp Monsters) alongside Danny McCormack (The Wildhearts) on bass, Matt Connor (keyboards) and Miqu December (Plastic Tears) on guest vocals.

Steve also handled engineering and production duties on the album with assistance from long-time associate Wan Hewitt on mixing and mastering. A live band has been assembled too and is now ready to take the songs from Recovered From My Past to stages the world over with UK dates starting in August 2022. The album and the lead single “All I Wanna Do” are available to pre-order now on Bandcamp.

But while writing and recording what has become his debut solo album, Steve started work on four brand new songs for Paradise Alley and the end result is the new EP, ‘Bad Timing & Silver Linings’, available to pre-order now on Bandcamp. Live dates are booked for a 30th Anniversary Tour alongside Plastic Tears and 2022 is looking brighter than ever for the best-kept secret in rock’n’roll.
