There are few artists that can be referred to as a: "roots troubadour, song-writing storyteller and master guitarist", and Stephen Fearing is one of them.
That description may not cascade off the tongue, but there is no better way to sum up the astonishing career BC-based Stephen Fearing has enjoyed. He has achieved acclaim and accolades for his work as a solo artist, producer, co-founder of roots-rock combo Blackie and the Rodeo Kings (B&RK) and as half of the indie-folk duo Fearing & White.
To date, Fearing has released 13 solo albums, 11 studio albums with B&RK and 2 Fearing & White albums. Stephen’s talent as a songwriter has landed him two JUNO awards (Best Roots & Traditional Album, in both the Group and Solo categories). Fearing picked up the award for ‘Contemporary Singer of the Year’ at the 2017 Canadian Folk Music Awards and the same year, his album Every Soul’s a Sailor won “Worldwide Album of the Year” by Blues & Roots Radio.
