Biography

A key member of the infamous “Bromley contingent” which helped to redefine fashion and culture in Seventies England, Steven Severin formed Siouxsie and the Banshees in 1976 together with Siouxsie Sioux. Steven was featured on all 16 albums and 30 singles as co-lyricist and songwriter during their two decades long career. During their reign, Siouxsie and the Banshees established themselves as one of the foremost alternative artists and the only survivors of the London punk scene to evolve, innovate and succeed until their mid 90s break up. Since the split of the Banshees Steven Severin has been busy working on various solo projects and collaborations as well as continuing to produce artists and writing articles on the arts and areas of intrigue for English publications such as The Guardian and The Independent. His first collection of erotic prose/poetry The Twelve Revelations was released in 2000.

After having spent 20 years working within the confines of major record company labels Steven decided to go the independent route. He designed his own web site stevenseverin.com and set up his own label RE:. The label existed for five years enabling Steven to release 3 solo albums of commissioned music: - Visions (1998), Maldoror (1999) and The Woman in the Dunes (2000).

Visions, written and produced by Steven, marked a radical departure from his previous musical compositions. Originally commissioned to write the soundtrack to Nigel Wingrove’s film Visions of Ecstasy Steven has completely reworked the soundtrack, originally 18 minutes long, into a 45 minute ambient instrumental album at times reminiscent of the film scores of Michael Nyman and Philip Glass.
