Dave Stewart pays tribute to Faye Fantarrow who has sadly lost her fight with cancer.

Dave Stewart has paid tribute to Faye Fantarrow, a young singer \ songwriter from Sunderland who was signed to Dave’s label Bay Street Records.

Dave told the Sunderland Echo

“I can’t put into words how devastated I was when, just after spending an amazing creative time with Faye last summer making her debut album, Faye found out she had this very aggressive brain tumour.

Faye was a joy to be around full of fun, laughter and sharp as a razor – a true artist in every sense.

Being with her and watching her at work is a diamond stuck in my head, moments I will never forget. I’m lucky to have met Faye and her Mum Pam, two humans together battling against all odds for Faye’s survival.

It has been both traumatic and beautiful to witness their strength and dignity and I am so sorry the world only got to witness Faye’s genius for such a short time. She is one of the true greats, a northern girl on fire with her lyrics and melodies. I loved her deeply”

Earlier this year Faye’s debut EP AWOL was released alongside some videos that had been filmed when she was well.

Annie Lennox and Dave Stewart had both contributed to a fund that had raised over £250K towards specialist treatment, and the campaign has now confirmed the remaining money will be donated to charity in Faye’s memory.

RIP Fay Fantarrow, you have left some beautiful and edgy songs behind. Our thoughts at Ultimate Eurythmics go out to all your family and friends.
