‘Steve Macfarlane has a fabulous voice’ Neil Sedaka

Happy Daze now on iTunes

Inspired by the words of Liverpool poet Peter Grant featuring 10 new songs penned by Steve Macfarlane and Billy Hui with additional words by Gary Millar. The album’s title is based on Peter’s poem of the same name and Happy Daze the poem became Cherry Blossom the song - hence the Chinese writing on the front cover translates to Cherry Blossom. Both Steve and Billy live in Liverpool, the home of the Beatles. Steve originally from Greenock in Scotland is now an adopted scouser and Billy is British born with Chinese parents. They recently performed for multi million selling artists Neil Sedaka and Michael Bolton.

Steve is co-owner of Parr Street Studios, the home of Coldplay’s first 3 albums. His main day job is as Director of one of the world’s largest software companies. Billy is an actor, radio presenter and classically trained musician. Happy Daze was arranged, engineered & produced by Steve Wright with the help of his lovely wife Viv at Y Dream Studios in Wales. Whilst Billy played the keyboards, all other instruments are the work of Steve Wright. Backing vocals are Gary Millar & Steve Wright. Gary has also been involved at every stage of development and is particularly proud of his work on the oriental mix of All The Tea in China and the final mixes of Heart Scare and Sideboard Picture

Thanks must go to Peter Grant for kicking the whole thing off; Cathy Roberts, Jim Connolly, Billy Butler & Roger Lyon from BBC Radio Merseyside, Joe Riley, Margaret & John Harry, Lyn & Tom Staunton, Steve & Viv Wright, Ken Dodd (for inspiring Remember When), Neil Sedaka (for his inspiration) and special thanks to Gary Millar, without whom none of this would have happened.
