Steven Georgiou (Cat Stevens) aka Yusuf Islam is a British singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist born 1948 in Marylebone, London. From his 1967 debut album Matthew & Son he proved himself a gifted singer and lyricist. Between 1970-1971 he released three superb albums - Mona Bone Jakon, Tea For The Tillerman and Teaser and the Firecat, which established Stevens as one of the world's leading singer/songwiters. Other outstanding albums include Catch Bull at Four, Foreigner, Buddha and the Chocolate Box and the live album Majikat. In 1978 Stevens adopted Islam and changed his name to Jusuf Islam. He dropped out of music for many years then began working again as Jusuf. The albums An Other Cup and Roadslinger are outstanding examples of his latter work.
