SteveB and Never2Late Release “Love is Wise”

Guitarist and songwriter SteveB returns to the UK music scene with Never2Late.


Yorkshire, UK guitarist and songwriter SteveB
of the Blues and Rock band Never2Late proves just that: it’s never too late to pursue your dreams. As a successful orthopedic surgeon in England, he’d harbored a love of music since his childhood.


After a trip with his wife to Glastonbury Festival, he came home with a renewed yearning to play music once again. After retrieving his guitar from the closet where it had been for years and posting an ad for band members, he was ready to pursue a dream.


Now semi-retired, SteveB and Never2Late just released their latest single, a rework of their 2015 song “Love is Wise.”

 

 

 


The artist says, “
It is sadly just as relevant today as it was when I wrote it. Inspired by a quote from the philosopher Bertrand Russell “Love is wise, hatred is foolish…” The message is also fitting for the musician himself, in that it’s never too late to instill a sense of positivity or discover a new passion. Other songs from the album include “It’s Great Getting Older Blues,” “Filthy Lucre” and “Hell is Other People.” 

 

SteveB says he tries to write songs that will be relevant for his generation of baby boomers, songs that reflect a life well lived. One poignant and jarringly somber song is “Sometimes I’m Ashamed to be a Man,” a song the surgeon-musician says was inspired by a patient he was treating who had been beaten half to death by her partner.

 

 

 

 

Lyrics include lines like, “Another bruised and blackened eye, Another swollen and split lip. Another weeping woman, another scared and cowering kid. Another life made misery, another spirit kept in chains, you can’t make up for your own failings. By bullying, abuse and pain.”


“Love is wise, hatred is foolish…” The message is also fitting for the musician himself, in that it’s never too late to instill a sense of positivity or discover a new passion.”

SteveB writes with wisdom and depth, something he notes he’s gained over time. He feels fortunate to have been able to pursue this second career after having a fulfilling career as a doctor.


I was lucky – I loved my job and seemed to be reasonably good at it. And now I have my music. I am lucky to find a second occupation I can do purely for the love of it. Although, he notes, “an invitation to play at Glastonbury would be nice and close the loop!!”

 

When asked about artists who inspire him, SteveB lists Bob Dylan, Joni Mitchell, Al Stewart, Roy Harper, Paul Simon, Leonard Cohen, Jackson Brown and John Martyn. Guitarists he admires include John McLaughlin, JJ Cale, Jimi Page, Joe Bonamassa and Eric Steckel.
