Nobody’s Empire: an evening with Stuart Murdoch
In celebration of his debut novel – Readings, Songs & a Live Q&A

Stuart Murdoch is a Scottish musician, composer, writer and filmmaker, and the lead singer and songwriter for the iconic Glasgow-based band Belle and Sebastian.

Since forming in the mid-1990s, the band has released twelve studio albums to high acclaim, Tigermilk and If You’re Feeling Sinister. The band enjoys a faithful worldwide audience, filling such venues as The Hollywood Bowl and Radio City Music Hall.

In 2010 his online diaries were collected into his first book, The Celestial Café (Pomona UK). In 2012 Murdoch scripted, composed and directed the movie God Help The Girl, a musical coming-of-age drama starring Olly Alexander from Years & Years. In 2022, Thames & Hudson published Belle and Sebastian: Illustrated Lyrics, combining words selected from over twenty-four years of Belle and Sebastian songs with specially commissioned illustrations from Scottish artist Pamela Tait
