A native of the North Wales countryside, Sweet Baboo aka Stephen Black is a single minded, idiosyncratic singer possessing an ear for sparkling melody and a gift for a deft lyrical turn – from darkly funny to piercingly tender, twinkling boastful to deliciously self-deprecating.
Having already been shortlisted for the Welsh Music Prize in 2011 for his third album ‘I’m A Dancer/Songs About Sleeping’, Black’s evolution as a songwriter and musician is still very much in motion with the new Album ‘Ships’, a concept album about the sea - and a marked step up from his earlier material that reveals his true talent is only beginning to be revealed.
Influenced by the likes of The Beach Boys, Daniel Johnston and Gorky’s Zygotic Mynci, Black indulges his love of brass heavy pop on ‘Ships’ which is released in April 2013 on Moshi Moshi Records.

I went to this gig almost totally to see Sweet Baboo, and wasn't disappointed. The guy is fantastic, the songs sweet and bitter, what more is there to say?
I can't say I enjoyed The Loves as much, but Dutch Uncle were great (as they were last time I saw them).… (cont'd) peb
