Stevie Scullion has been writing songs for many years now. His music has been likened to lots of other artists including Neil Young, The Band, Elliott Smith, Nick Drake, Grandaddy and Iron & Wine.

Having spent the last few years as the songwriter of acclaimed alt-folk act Cat Malojian, Stevie has been garnering a reputation as a songwriter of merit.

When Cat Malojian split in June 2010, Stevie could very easily have lost the plot. Instead he opted to “cut my hair and split my tree” and came back reinvigorated as simply Malojian.

Gary Lightbody is among the admirers. In Q magazine in March this year he said: “I’m completely obsessed with this gorgeous song by Malojian.

“It is achingly beautiful and there is the crackle and breath of a life being lived in its plaintive revolutions. This healed me a little bit. Please heal me more.”
