Glasgow born Hamish Stuart first attained international acclaim as the lead guitarist and falsetto voice of the Average White Band,
one of the great self-contained soul/funk bands of the 70s. However, when the band’s popularity began to fade in the early 80s, the
group split and Stuart went his own way. He became a much sought-after guitarist and vocalist, and over the next several years
worked with David Sanborn, Aretha Franklin and others. Most notably, in the late 80s he joined Paul McCartney’s band
as guitarist for a half dozen years and several albums. He also wrote for a number of artists, including Atlantic Starr’s hit“If Your
Heart Isn’t In It” and songs for Smokey Robinson, Jeffrey Osborne, George Benson and Diana Ross.
Stuart continues to perform live with his band and is producing other acts, most recently Gordon Haskell and Swedish
singer/songwriter Meja Beckman.
