Seminal reggae artist and producer Lee Scratch Perry has just released a new album ‘Revelation’ which features guest slots from Keith Richards (Rolling Stones), George Clinton (Parliament, Funkadelic) and David Stewart Jones – from Wrexham.

‘Stew’, has he’s known, has worked with Scratch Perry’s producer Steve Marshall on several occasions and was invited by Perry to contribute to this new release. Stew plays a finger-style guitar technique with a sweep picking style which enables him to play very fast flurries of notes. He has played with Perry live on a number of occasions.

Stew plays in the Paul Sturman band and is currently playing gigs around the Wrexham area.
