Stephen Fearing was born in Vancouver, BC and grew up in Dublin where his schoolmates included future members of U2.
In 1984 he returned to Canada, determined to become a professional musician. In the years since, he's been recognized as one of the country's finest songwriters. He built a national and international audience for his music, doing it old school through countless performances at intimate venues and on the concert stages of festivals and theatres across Canada, the US, the UK, and Europe, appearing at major events like Reading Festival and WOMAD, to name just a few.
His music is a mesmerizing blend of roots, folk, and pop. As a solo artist he has released nine albums and worked with special guests including Bruce Cockburn, Margo Timmons, Richard Thompson, Shawn Colvin, Sarah McLachlan, and Rose Cousins. A beguiling teller of tales and master guitarist, Fearing is an alluring entertainer – heartbreaking, expansive, and full of mirth - with a clear, honourable voice that lifts you out into his wide world and “brings you back home to yourself.”
In 1996 he co-founded the Canadian supergroup Blackie and The Rodeo Kings with Colin Linden and Tom Wilson. Together over 22 years and with nine albums to their credit, the band is one of the most respected names in North American roots-rock music.
