In 2003 there's time to form a new hobby-band; STRANGER BY THE MINUTE:
Steve Rothery - Guitar,
Pete Trewavas - Bass,
Phil Beaumont - Drums, (worked with the them on the Made agian album + tour and he worked with Francis Dunnery ('03)),
Matt Prior - Guitar, (ex-Bonnie Tyler),
Paul Sturman - Vocals,
John Williams - Keyboards,
Charlotte Evans - Vocals, (she worked with Marillion as engineer),
Carly Jackson - Vocals.
The music of the Stranger by the Minute band can be described as "The Commitments meets
ZZ Top and you'd be halfway there", according to Rothery.
He has worked and produced with such artists as:
Edisons children (Pete Trewavas)(2012).
Steve has released a new album from the Wishing Tree with Hannah Stobart.
And the album is called "Ostara". Released March 2008.
The Wishing Tree could be seen at the Dutch Marillion Convention 2009.
And i must say their set was nice smooth and impressive. Was fun to see that the old laddies; Mr Rothery and Trewaras were joined by some younger lads and gals.
