The Steve Ellis by Delicious Junction
‘The Steve Ellis’, as the name suggests, is the new Delicious Junction collaboration with singer extraordinaire, Steve Ellis.
After gigging locally for a few years in the mid 60s with Mod band THE SOUL SURVIVORS, Steve became the voice of 1968 – a big claim to fame when you consider the competition back then – with the band LOVE AFFAIR who scored a worldwide number one with the fabulous and fondly remembered single ‘Everlasting Love’.
The band went on to have scores of top twenty hits, with ‘Rainbow Valley’ and ‘Bringing On Back The Good Times’ to name just a couple.
Steve then went on to have an equally successful solo career in the early 70s, recording the soundtrack to the film ‘Loot’, based on the play by playwright Joe Orton. Steve later teamed up with Zoot Money for the band ELLIS. He then toured the UK and the USA extensively with WIDOW- MAKER. 1991 saw him tour as STEVE ELLIS` LOVE AFFAIR through until 2001.
In recent years, Steve has released both new material as well as albums created from his very ample un-released music archive. Steve also continues to tour his music far and wide, with a full schedule of gig dates being confirmed on a yearly basis.
2016 sees Steve team up with long time friend Paul Weller. He will be playing on, as well as overseeing the recording of a new album. The album will boast a fine mix of covers alongside a selection of exciting new songs. The album will also proudly feature Mike D`Abo, Andy Crofts and Ben Gordelier (P.W. BAND and THE MOONS), Kev Wallbank and Mark, as well as Maxine Boxall (COW). The album will be co-produced by long time music engineer Charles Rees.

It’s a total delight to have Steve in the Delicious Junction stable and we look forward to a fruitful relationship.
The shoe, a basket weave leather slip-on, available in Black, Tan or Navy/White is inspired by an actual shoe from Steve’s wardrobe of original 60s clobber.
“Del and I designed the shoes based on an old 60`s pair I had. Cool with Jeans and a shirt or T-shirt and smart with a suit… so choose your colour my friends.
People have always procrastinated about MOD through the years…Well MOD is in the heart you cannot define it… but clothes were integral and always will be part of that scene both then and now.
Stay smart stay sharp maybe that defines the clothes but the music is paramount and always will be.
I hope you enjoy the shoes regardless…”
Steve Ellis, 2016
