The Story so far....

Born in Glasgow, Stuart Stevenson grew up in Ayr in South West Scotland, where he now lives.  He was drawn towards creating music from a young age, inspired by his Dad who sang in gospel groups and released records.  Starting piano lessons aged 8 and moving onto guitar as a teenager, he started recording music, gigging and making cassette albums with school band Mossbunker. 

Stu's songwriting and performing developed during his time at University, establishing himself in the Glasgow indie music scene with the bands Picnic and Frankograph, becoming regulars in Alex Kapranos' Kazoo Club in 13th Note.  Stu became Sbob in 2002 as the front man, singer & guitarist of the 3 piece power-poptastic Bob Cuba who, upon their first Radio Play on Radio 1, were described by Steve Lamacq as 'The best thing to come from Glasgow since Primal Scream'. 

Bob Cuba released the EPs 'Bounce' and 'Million Eyes' as well as the eponymous album 'Bob Cuba' in 2007 on Fusion Records, which received critical acclaim in music press and received the 'Album of the Week' award from The Sun.  The releases were backed by a relentless UK touring schedule, radio sessions and press interviews.  During this time, Bob Cuba had songs featured in a Nickelodeon cartoon and several European indie dance compilations with a remix of 'Karaoke Tribe' by producer Rico.

Sbob started composing music for theatre in 2013 through a meeting of minds with Glasgow director Lawrence Crawford and has worked as songwriter and musical director on 'A New Year's Tale', 'Frankie Goes to Easterhouse', 'The Ruggie Troll', 'A Miracle on Ruggie Main Street' and the Billy Connolly bioplay  'From Humble Beginnings to Humblebum'.  Sbob and Lawrence (aka Arkle) are currently teaming up, having recently formed the band Stelar77.

Sbob's current work includes writing songs for new Sbob and Stellar77 albums, planned for release in Autumn 2023.  Sbob is also pitching new music for films and TV following the success of the music for the short film 'The Kids Aren't Alright'.
