Stephen Cummings is one of Australia's most revered rock 'n' roll icons. Rising to fame as front man of '70s legends The Sports, he has spent more than 40 years at the forefront of the local music scene, forging a reputation both as singer and songwriter, making him one of Australian rock's greatest lyrical storytellers.

The Sports were prominent on the Melbourne rock scene in the late 70s, with hits including the classic 'Who Listens to the Radio?' and 'Don't Throw Stones'. They released 4 hit albums and toured Australia, Europe and America until the early 80s.

Stephen's first solo album 'Senso' charted impressively, with a top 5 single, 'Gymnasium'. With his third album, 'Lovetown', Cummings hit his creative stride—critical praise was showered on the album, and it is now revered as a classic amongst his fans and followers of the Australian music scene.

His fourth album, 'A New Kind of Blue', won an ARIA award for Best Adult Contemporary Album, and his eighth album, 'Falling Swinger', was included in Australian Rolling Stone's list of "100 essential Australian albums".
