Born and raised in Glasgow, Scotland there was always music around as Stevie grew up. Stevie never had any guitar or singing lessons but throughout the family there were plenty of people who sang or played some kind of instrument to learn from. Early success came with his brother Alan in the Nimmo brothers, one of the leading bands on the British blues circuit.
