Culminating in a set of four well received acoustic demos, they began with a series of low key gigs around London and Edinburgh before embarking on a recording an acoustic EP that saw a limited release and was sold at live concerts, before being made available via the iTunes Music Store. Body on the Line In the summer of 2005, Perry introduced Stevenson to a group of Stockholm-based musicians comprising Brady Blade (Dave Matthews & Friends, Emmylou Harris, Steve Earle, Bob Dylan) on drums, Surjo Benigh (Ulf Lundell) on bass, and Jan Petersson (Eric Bibb, Odetta) on keyboards. Recording sessions took place in Stockholm and London, and were mastered by Ted Jensen at Sterling Sound, New York. Released in November 2006, Body On The Line mixes the original acoustic roots of Stevenson's music with multi-instrument sensibilities. Nashville sessions Throughout the period of completing Body On The Line, Stevenson continued writing feverishly and new songs were regularly aired whilst touring in support of the first record. Shortly after the first LP's release in December 2006, Stevenson and Perry took residence in Nashville, Tennessee at Ocean Way Studios without a particular aim other than to record some new music.

Re-joining Stevenson was drummer Brady Blade who suggested bass player Chris Donohue and multi-instrumentalist Phil Madeira be included in the band. The sessions were recorded and mixed by Prince's engineer and producer David Z.. 19 songs were recorded by the group, with 15 of these ultimately being mixed at a second session in February 2007. Although there was not an original intention to immediately release these new recordings, by the summer of 2007 it was clear the recordings had formed a cohesive album with stronger electric sensibilities than its predecessor. And after a third and final recording session took place in September 2007, without Perry, the album, now called All My Strange Companions, was deemed complete and ready for mastering.

The album was released on 15th April 2008 in the US and later in 2008 in the UK and Europe. His tunes have already received praise from Variety and USA Today. Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
