FRESH: ‘Where Would We Be Now?’ – Stevie Appleton

Stevie Appleton asks “Where Would We Be Now?”

Stevie Appleton has released “Where Would We Be Now?”, the follow up song to “Blue” with DJ Teisto. Following the success of “Blue”, released earlier this year, where Stevie was featured vocalist (he also co-wrote the song with Teisto), his new single, “Where Would We Be Now?” was written earlier this year. The single is a piece of Summer pop, that he is hoping will get people DANCING after weeks of lockdown. Produced by London based Jay Reynolds, who is currently on a roll, his recent credits include working with Dua Lipa, AJ Tracy and Mabel, Fred Again and Nines…

Stevie combines a duel love of singer-songwriters with the production value of dance to mine his own brand on pop music. The London based artist is a musician in the truest sense. An accomplished pianist from the age of six and talks passionately of a love of travel that’s seen him perform with salsa bands in Cuba, classical musicians on the Amalfi Coast of Italy and a hip hop group in Colombia. “Playing around the world like that has given me a chance to explore some of the genres that might be too much for a record” he says.

After graduating from music college in London, he was quickly signed by Spinnin’ Record’s based in The Netherlands, and recognised as one of their key writers. During his time there, the label recognised his vocal and performing ability and, with Warner Music Group, released his debut single “Supposed To Do”. Stevie has since become a platinum-selling writer with artists including Tiesto, Cher Lloyd, Klingande and Filatov & Karas, with Number 1’s as far afield as Russia, Poland and Singapore. Stevie adds: “I started as a live musician and performing reminds me why this is the only job I ever want”. And it’s a job he’s not doing too badly at so far!

So perhaps you’ve read an article or two that I’ve written and wondered “just who is this character?”! Well I thought maybe it would be time to introduce myself and what I’m all about. Well it’s all about the music! Having been born in the late 1970’s I was heavily influenced by my parent’s love of ‘popular’ music and rock and roll of the 1950’s and 60’s. My Mother always said she should of married Elvis and my father was, and is still, in love with Sandie Shaw! But while my Dad’s tastes stopped in about 1967, my Mum carried on loving music throughout the 70’s, 80’s and beyond. My first memory was playing on the floor whilst my Mother was ironing one day with the radio on, and hearing ABBA’s “Super Trouper” dancing my nappy off to it! Maybe that’s where it all went wrong…?! Having been subjected to all and sundry in my infant years, I finally found my feet in the mid-1980’s and began ‘partying’ to the likes of Culture Club, Stevie Wonder(!), Elkie Brooks and Bananarama to name but a few! The year 1987 would have a profound effect on my listening tastes and from thereon in my life would be dominated with buying and listening to music. Any number of outstanding songs were released and listened to that year, most notably “Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now”, “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” and “La Isla Bonita”. That Summer my mind was completely taken over with music and sounds I’d never heard before and I was totally taken in by it all. My father would say “whaaar rubbish you got on naaaaao?” (I’m from Norfolk!) but I was hooked. And it continued so for the rest of the decade and the next. At the beginning of 1988 I ‘met’ my true love and the singer I’ve worshipped more than any other artist or group. You may know of her. She’s from Australia…! Aside from pop music, my tastes are many and varied and continues to grow and expand as I ‘mature’ in age. I’ve always been heavily interested in films and in particular the mechanics of film making and of course film music, so scores and subsequently orchestral music takes up a lot of my tastes and collection. 90’s dance and club tunes also takes up much of the space in my head and I’m surprised my brain has stopped shaking from the years of abuse it took being dragged to nightclubs, often three times a week in my 20’s! I find with each year that passes I regress back to my youth and of course the 1980’s. 80’s music dominates and the lust to see as many 80’s acts and singers play live now is insatiable. I’m still getting into the groove as much as every breath I take, but I’m never gonna give up listening to my heart and pumping up the volume, simply because I LOVE MUSIC…any kind of music!
