Billy Sloan: Enter Steven's great Exit.

Byline: Billy Sloan

STEVEN LINDSAY got so disillusioned with the music industry, he didn't make a record for 13 years.

But on November 1, the ex-Big Dish singer is back with a brilliant new album, Exit Music, featuring the single November.

His old band recorded classics such as Christina's World, Miss America and Swimmer. There are a few more on Exit Music.

'There was always pressure in the business to have hit singles,' said Steven. 'They didn't let you develop as a writer or artist. So I turned my back on it.

'But I woke up one morning and thought, 'I can make a great record again.' The songs on Exit Music have been recorded totally on my own terms.'

Now Steven, who has also worked with award-winning composer Craig Armstrong alongside Bono, is also planning some gigs.

Welcome back.

SESSION guests tonight on my Clyde 1 radio show at 7pm are The Kevin McDermott Orchestra. My playlist also features James Grant, Kings Of Leon and The Pearlfishers.
