Born in Sunderland, Stewart spent time honing his craft before arriving in London and meeting Annie Lennox in 1976. Initially forming The Tourists, the duo started to enjoy some commercial success with their cover of Dusty Springfield’s I Only Want To Be With You. After ending that chapter, Stewart and Annie became The Eurythmics and dominated the pop landscape for the next decade. Songs such as Sweet Dreams Are Made of This, Here Comes The Rain Again, There Must Be An Angel, and Sisters Are Doin’ It For Themselves propelled the band to global success. Winning a Grammy for best rock performance in 1987, and a Brit Award for Outstanding Achievement in 1999, they are estimated to have sold over 75 million albums.
Post Eurythmics, Stewart has continued to deliver an enormous selection of music both solo and with his band the Spiritual Cowboys. He has collaborated with numerous other artists including Terry Hall, Feargal Sharkey, Bon Jovi, Bryan Ferry, Shakespeare Sister, Darry Hall, Stevie Nicks, Tom Petty as well as with Mick Jagger on his solo work and in the pop supergroup Super Heavy.
