Steo Wall, “Glory Days” – ISOTW – 02/10/23

Taken from Steo’s highly anticipated second album Street Wisdom For Lost Souls; Glory Days is the fourth track to be taken from the album and is preceded by Borstal Boy, My People and More Blacks More Dogs More Irish.

The most recent single, More Blacks More Dogs More Irish featuring vocal powerhouse Toshín was released last winter and is an anti-racism/protest song written as a middle finger to anyone who looks down their nose at anyone else.

Steo speaks more on this track later in this document.


Written by Steo, Glory Days is produced with Martin O’Malley, who co-produced the new album also, with Steo and is mastered by the inimitable Brian Masterson @Soundscape.

After first breaking onto the Irish music scene in 2018, Steo’s star is on a distinct upward trajectory.

Steo can refer to Christy Moore as being one of his biggest supporters’ while also being a most welcome and sincere confidant and a fan.

Steo has also captivated audiences throughout Ireland and the UK; his live sets have been described by Damien Dempsey as pure alchemy.

Steo has an eclectic taste which shines through in the multi-genre array of songs on his roster.

Having shared a stage with Damien Dempsey on national tours in 2016, 2017 and again opening for Damo’s stage in Vicar Street in 2018 it was obvious Damo had become a fan of Steo and his music.

He subsequently featured on Steo’s debut single release called, What’s Wrong With The World Ma?

Steo’s distinct music style and inspiration for writing is only surpassed by his performances; Steo’s mix of spoken word and folk-inspired melodies weave together in an acoustic groove as pure and passion fuelled as you will find, down the road.

His musical influences include fellow luminaries such as The Fureys, Bob Marley, Shane McGowan, Sinead O’Connor, Christy Moore and Tupac; artists not afraid to tell the tales needing to be told.
