'I love Happy Daze’   Roger Lyon BBC Radio Merseyside


Liverpool based Steve Macfarlane has now recorded 2 albums. One a covers version and the second written by Steve, Billy Hui and Peter Grant with contributions from Gary Millar.  Both Steve and Gary are co-owners with Thomas Lang of Liverpool’s famous Parr Street Studios.

Steve’s first album is "54 - a moment in time".  This celebration nostalgic album was released in 2004 raising over £7,000 for UK children's charities and helped create interest in The International Festival of Motorsport. The festival celebrated 50 years since Aintree's Grand Prix track was built.  Therefore all songs were originally released in 1954. This album's 16 tracks are now available on iTunes and may be downloaded via this website

The second self-penned "Happy Daze" released by Parr Street Music in December 2010 is a mix of orchestral instruments and Steve's stunning vocals.

2010 Happy Daze Inspired by the words of Liverpool poet Peter Grant is 12 tracks penned by Steve & Billy Hui with additional words by Gary Millar. The title based on Peter’s poem of the same name became Cherry Blossom the song - the front cover's Chinese translates to Cherry Blossom. Home for Steve and Billy is Liverpool. Steve from Greenock in Scotland is an adopted scouser. Billy is British born with Chinese parents. They recently performed for multi million selling Neil Sedaka & Michael Bolton. Volume 1 is the full orchestral sound and volume 2 the simpler vocal/piano mix.

2004 54 a moment in time 16 hits from 1954 celebrating 50 years since the UK’s first purpose Grand Prix track was built in Liverpool; raising charity funds (over £7.5k/$10k for Children in Need / UNICEF). Songs written/released in '54 with the exception of Cy Coleman & Carolyn Leigh’s 1959 The Best is Yet to Come.  Steve’s velvet vocals and Mike Neary’s guitar are simply stunning on Smile and Cry Me a River whilst He’s a Tramp is wonderfully fresh. Sh-Boom with backing vocals by Alison Clements brings a warm smile and closes with The Best is Yet to Come a tease for future albums.
