“Ryan, a 26 year old whose muse seems to be an old bluesman from the 1940’s, Bleeding dry is his best tune – a country guitar, rumbling Animal’s style ryhthm and bass, and a bitter lyric: ‘Death you can save me from this life.'” Rick Fulton, Daily Record.
Stephen Watt was born in Dumbarton in 1979, and is a Scottish poet and spoken word artist. He is the author of the poetry collection ‘Spit’, and was crowned the Poetry Rivals Slam Champion in Peterborough in 2011 after beating 8,000 entrants. Since then, Stephen’s online video “Rubik” collected the StAnza Digital International Poetry prize, the Tartan Treasures award, and a clutch of titles both on the page and stage. Performances at Doune The Rabbit Hole, Eden, Wickerman and the Edinburgh Festival have introduced Stephen’s work to audiences across the country, while his written work continues to be published in countries as far as New York and Mexico.
