David Stephenson (born 1959, Lichfield, Staffordshire, UK) has had a long association with the art and music worlds. He has been writing song lyrics since he was ten years old, becoming especially inspired by the arrival of the London and New York Punk Rock scenes of the late 1970s. This was followed by an enthusiastic love and wide research of American Blues and Soul music, which also influenced Stephenson to teach himself blues harmonica (the only instrument he can play proficiently).
