NRC-099 Steven Faulkner, Covers and Album Writing

Steven Faulkner

Solo Artist


Covers Preformer


This week Jethro Talks with Steven Faulkner a regular face on the covers circuit around Nottinghamshire. But as music as we all miss the Live Music Scene, don’t forget about all the Covers artists. So Steven has been into music for the best part of his life, and covers became his full time work. But since the start of the pandemic he has not been able to get out on the circuit so he started writing his own stuff!!! and we talked all about this and so much more!!

  • Nottinghamshire Live have caused a stir in the scene this week, with them reporting that the Tap N Tumbler might not reopen after tier 3 restrictions are lifted. There has been no confirmation from either the venue itself or Greene King, and coupled with Nottinghamshire Live’s slightly dramatized approach to journalism, we can’t say 100% for certain if this is happening yet, but, if it does, then it’ll truly be a tragic loss for us.

  • Rock City has turned 40! First opening in 1980, the venue has seen so many of the bands we love come through, such as Guns N Roses, Ozzy Osbourne, Nirvana, and hosted so many local bands on top of all of it. They are currently posting a series of birthday wishes from bands such as The Libertines, New Model Army and Frank Turner and have even been featured on BBC news, with them calling the venue “The last of it’s kind”. Happy birthday from us and here is to many many more!

  • Raging Clue, who just put out their new pop-punk banger “She Don’t” are recruiting fans to take part in a pre-release promo for a single that is due to be released next month. To get involved simply drop them a DM on Instagram or Facebook and then you can be featured on their socials in the build up to the new single.

  • Infirm of Purpose have released their cover of Ariana Grande’s single “Positions” on streaming websites. The modern metal band have released a music video on Facebook of the track previously and have been speedily gathering streams on their other material, with their song “Another Face” featuring Jack Flynn of On Hollow Ground, reaching 10,000 streams! Bit congrats to those guys on hitting that milestone and with a sound like they have the sky is the limit!

  • Raised By Owls have continued their hilarious sketch series on social media with a sketch titled “A Song About 2020”. I’m not going to spoil anything, but what I will say is that it is…. Well…. I guess a little dramatic just like the year itself. It’s on their Instagram and Facebook pages for all to view and as of writing has gained a decent if not slightly funny 696 views on Instagram.
