Artist Biography

b. Bernard William Jewry, 27 September 1942, London, England. Fenton achieved his first notable success after securing a spot on Saturday Club, BBC Radio’s influential show. Backed by the Fentones and sporting a distinctive silver lamé suit, the singer quickly became a part of Britain’s pre-beat enclave, beside other home-grown talent including Cliff Richard, Marty Wilde, Duffy Power and Billy Fury. Fenton had a UK Top 30 hit in 1961 with the mythologizing ‘I’m A Moody Guy’, but despite several similarly structured releases, only ‘Cindy’s Birthday’ (1962) broached the UK Top 20. Deemed passé on the rise of the Beatles, Fenton eked out a living from the rock ‘n’ roll/cabaret circuit until revitalizing his career in the 70s under a new guise, Alvin Stardust.
