Stevie Stoker - Frontman / guitarist

I eventually picked up a guitar aged 12 and within 6 months I started Twister. I set my goals fairly low at first, wanting to play a few songs with my friends, play a gig, write some of my own material - to now where I set my sights on the very top of the music industry.

I got the job as "Singer" because no one else would do it. I couldn't sing a note. My musical roots are playing with my Grandad's 50s Rock 'N' Roll and Skiffle band then on to punk and classic rock and then singer/songwriter acoustic music. When I'm writing I often take influences from all of these to come up with some of our material. I'm very lucky as I have had excellent support over the years from my family which has brought us even closer together and we have met so many other amazing people along the way.

I started playing guitar around 13 years old and joined my first gigging band shortly after. I was influenced by a wide variety of styles but mainly modern Rock, alternative & Metal Music. I always aspire to write memorable, catchy hooks on the guitar and if it doesn’t serve the song it doesn’t stay. Top 5 bands/artists are bring me the horizon, biffy clyro, royal blood, trash boat & while she sleeps. I first saw Twister aged 13 & followed them intently ever since - even supporting them in my former band. I never really considered music could be my career until I joined the band in March 2015 and now I can’t imagine doing anything else.It was always an ambition of mine to join Twister, and here I am, alongside my best friends.

I first started drumming on my 9th birthday and as soon as I picked up a pair of sticks I knew that’s what I was wanting to do for the rest of my life. Over the past 10 years plus, that I’ve been drumming I’ve managed to perform in multiple original bands all over the UK. I first met the guys in Twister, and heard them in a bar in Newcastle and as soon as the opportunity came around for me to join them I jumped at it. I’m looking forward to the future with Twister and helping the band continue moving forward and progressing.

I started playing bass when I was 14 and was mostly self taught up until I joined college, where I got 1 to 1 lessons every week. My first real gig was with Twister a short time after joining in January 2018. The music I am influenced by is mostly rock and alternative rock.
