Steve Wall: Episode 236
1 day ago
Through his work with The Stunning and The Walls, Steve Wall has become one of Ireland's most beloved singer/songwriters. For most that would be enough. For Steve it was just the beginning. Nobody can tell his story better than Steve himself.
Steve explains the 'different breed' of Christian Brother education that he had when he moved to the west (12:00), the ridiculous career guidance that he received there (17:00) and how the resulting feeling of being left behind while doing the wrong college course drove him on in his artistic pursuits (30:00).
From the hilarious stories of his time spent working as the Assistant to the Chief Lubricator in a factory (38:00) to his sexual awakening as a guitar-playing 'God' in a small German town (40:00) and the difficulties that Irish musicians face in the global industry (1:00:00), this is one of those Irishman Abroad conversations you'll wish went on for another hour with one of the nicest men you could possibly meet. The new Stunning album is out now.
