St. Bishop’s music is filled with bold, unapologetic statements made along a journey of self-exploration. Each affirmation comes with the charm of a young queer man who not only embraces but adores his queer-ness. He blends genres of electro-pop, soul, and indie as freely as he delves into issues of sexuality, gender identity, and radical self-acceptance. Writing in an autobiographical style, he channels his struggles into his writing, and through this process, he continues to counsel himself and explore his identity.
It’s not always been simple and the journey to true self-love is an ongoing one. Irrespective of his wonderful family support, as a young man he felt unable to express his honest self in society, particularly in rural Ireland. Ste literally came out with St. Bishop, hand in hand, alter-ego and truest self. With this coming out, he was faced with a totally unexpected realization, that coming out is only the first step, and where he thought the journey may end, is actually only the very beginning.
The journey of learning more about himself runs in tandem with the unfinished nature of the St. Bishop project and the release of the highly anticipated sophomore EP 'St. Bishop', shows us exactly why he is one to pay close attention to. The St. Bishop EP features singles Alone, Talking To You, Friends, and Upset - with each making their presence known on Irish radio and online charts.
Following his sold-out Workman's Club headliner and performance at Mother's Summer Block Party, Talking To You made its debut at No. 1 on the Irish iTunes Top 100 Charts and was selected as Today FM's All Irish Track of the Week alongside Friends & Alone. This success also led to his recent sold-out London debut with Sounds Queer and his packed-out performance in The Workman's Cellar with MCD, setting him up for an exciting summer of performances both at home and in the UK.
