As an OMF Ambassador, Stuart is working with us, in our social media and fundraising campaigns, to promote awareness of this dreadful disease and OMF’s efforts to end it. Stuart and his band, Belle and Sebastian, add global social awareness to OMF’s efforts as the band, based in Glasgow, Scotland, where they were founded 20 years ago, has achieved worldwide fame through its tours and multiple recordings.
Stuart is the lead singer and songwriter for the band, and he is also a composer, writer, filmmaker, and father. Some of his songs and his films reflect the struggles he has faced with ME / CFS when he became too ill to work or study for seven years.
UPDATE: OMF Ambassador Stuart Murdoch appears on CNN Turning Points.
