Malojian, or Stevie Scullion, to his friends, is a young singer/songwriter from Lurgan, near Belfast.
He's been making real waves in the past few years, and I'm delighted to present him for his debut BAG appearance on November 27th.
Joining him on the night will be Mark McCausland - better known as one half of The Lost Brothers - to open the show, and back Stevie on guitars and harmony vocals. This will be a real treat of a gig, and is likely to live long in the BAG memory.

Over the last few years, Malojian has released 4 stunning solo albums, along the way collaborating with some musical legends, including Steve Albini, who earned his chops producing Nirvana, The Pixies etc. His latest album - 'Let Your Weirdness Carry You Home' features Joey Waronker (Beck, R.E.M., Atoms For Peace, Roger Waters), Gerry Love (Teenage Fanclub), Jon Thorne (Yorkston/Thorne/Khan, Lamb) and more…But it’s Malojian’s own voice and songs that sets him apart from the crowd. 

“Absolutely love that! If the new album is as good as that track it’s gonna be a masterpiece…a strong element of Beatles ’67…that kind of slightly woozy psychedelia…beautiful…” Ralph McLean, BBC, June ’17

“achingly beautiful” Q Magazine

“the North’s best songwriter over the last half decade” Hot Press Magazine 

“I really and truly believe we’ve unearthed a star here and I can’t urge you strongly enough to seek out this wonderful album.” Maverick Magazine
