This is StuartyJ. Beck


IN 1992 STUARTY J'S FIRST RELEASE (STUART EP) SOLD OUT WITHIN SIX MONTHS.
HE WAS THEN SIGNED TO A RECORD COMPANY IN MANCHESTER SHORTLY AFTERWARDS
(JELLY STREET RECORDS).
MANY AUDITIONS FOLLOWED (STARS IN THEIR EYES, GO FOR IT, AND BARRYMORE) BUT THE YOUNG STUARTY J'S DREAM WAS TO BE A SINGER/SONGWRITER/ENTERTAINER, AND NOT SOME TV PUPPET LOOKING FOR FIFTEEN MINUTES OF FAME, STUARTY J WANTED MORE.


AFTER FOUR YEARS ON THE ROAD HE WENT BACK INTO THE STUDIO ONLY THIS TIME WITH HIS OWN SONGS,
AND RECORDED HIS FOLLOW UP ALBUM (FROM THE ASHES AND FIRE).


THIS TIME THE REVIEWS WHERE EVEN BETTER, AND THE SINGLE (MY SWEET JOANNE/THE MORNIN' AFTER) WERE PLAYLISTED FOR THE FIRST TIME.
HE WENT BACK OUT ON THE ROAD, ONLY THIS TIME HIS TOURS TOOK HIM EVEN FUTHER
HE RECORDED HIS FIRST ALBUM IN 1994 (THE RISE OF THE PHOENIX) AND RELEASED BOTH IT AND A SINGLE (GIRL IN A MOMENT) IN 1995 TO RAVE REVIEWS.
THE SINGLE WAS TAKEN TO CBS IN AMERICA. IN THE SAME YEAR HE WENT OUT ON TOUR FOR THE FIRST TIME AS THE SUPPORT ACT FOR TOP IRISH COMEDIAN MAY MCFETTERIDGE, AND WAS ASKED TO PERFORM AT THE BELFAST CITY HALL FOR THE MISS N.I. SHOW.

BETWEEN 1992-1997 HE WOULD PERFORM NO LESS THAN 150-200 SHOWS PER YEAR AND RELEASE 12 ALBUMS, ALL OF WHICH ARE NOW SOLD OUT. HE FINISHED 1997 IN ESSEX WITH A SHOW IN FRONT OF THOUSANDS AT THE CIRCUS TAVERN. THERE IS SIMPLY NO OTHER ENTERTAINER WHO WORKS HARDER.
