Fiercely independent, Steve and the Sea is, and has always been a one-man operation. Combining guitar loops with electronic beats, warming synths and haunting, melancholic vocals, Steve McCarthy sets out to create soundscapes that take the listener on a voyage across an ocean of memories, missed conversations and existential theories.
Steve released his debut EP ‘Stay dry, Stay Warm’ in January 2016. The entire EP was written, performed, recorded and produced by Steve, including artwork and distribution.
Steve and the Sea will most likely appeal to fans of Radiohead/Thom Yorke, Ben Howard and Jeff Buckley.
Steve is based in Sheffield, UK.
