Guitarist and songwriter Jon Stewart formed what became the Britpop band Sleeper with Louise Wener whilst they were both students at University of Manchester. The band recorded for Sony/BMG 1993-98 and enjoyed three UK Top 10 albums (one silver, one gold, one platinum) and eight UK Top 20 singles. They toured the UK, Europe, Japan and USA/Canada many times over that period, their biggest show being in front of 85.000 people supporting Radiohead / REM at Milton Keynes Bowl. Sleeper also appeared in the million-selling soundtrack of Danny Boyle’s iconic Trainspotting movie. Louise’s memoir “Just For One Day” is a hilarious retelling of their story. In 2017, after 20 years apart, Sleeper reunited to play twentieth anniversary shows to a sold-out Kentish Town 02 Forum and Shepherd’s Bush Empire. Now a widely published popular music researcher, Jon is Course Leader for the BA (Hons) Music Business at BIMM Institute, Brighton.
