Welcome to – home of the multi-genre musicians' consortium STEWARDS ECLECTRIC.

To our valued repeat visitors, followers, and admitted fans: welcome back. It is for your ears we keep old tape rolling, discs spinning, gears meshing, and organic machinery humming. Creativity is unpredictable - which is how it should be. The idea is and always was to make new music and have some fun. We're serious about the music but beyond that... well, see for yourself.

As always, we invite you to listen using the music players at the bottom of this page. They're FREE. If you do not have music quality computer speakers, we hope you might use good stereo headphones if you got 'em. (Our fussy recording engineer thanks you!) The pandemic shutdown here initially slowed our roll, but we're getting caught up, and new material is coming out, so we're rollin' yet again.

Of course, you may have another reason for being here. Seeking info about some music heard recently, shared, streamed, or on a playlist? Are you searching for info about a particular band [Bobby Comstock Band, Headwind, Strange Brew, Farmhouse Garage, etc.] or about a particular song, recording artist or musician, past or current? Check ‘Bandography’ on the ABOUT page; SONG INFO; pics and artwork in PHOTO/ART GALLERY; and many tidbits both relevant and obscure, hiding in our often quoted if not outright plagiarized Q&A pages, ©!

Send comments, questions, love and hate mail by using the email addresses on the Q&A page, or the CONTACT form there. We answer many inquiries directly, and if interesting on a broader scale, sometimes post the exchange. Thanks.


Our music is not promoted ~ in the conventional sense ~ but we're happy when you do it by lissning and sharing. These days, music and business  are diametrically-opposed concepts, like 'jumbo shrimp' only not as tasty, and great  songs  are degraded to those few seconds leading into and out of the commercial.   

    So: do we spend  our time  doing  things meaningful and fulfilling to the soul, OR  do we jump through little hoops  for a few cents thrown upon the stage? We choose the former.

Thanks to all for  helping correct our accessiblity issues.  Sorry if we didn't come up on your fern. It's fixed.

...and Hello  new lissners   in upstate Montana and Tokyo.

Reach out, shoot an email, say what you think.

Enjoy your visit.

Q & A of the Week:

Nothing new has come in recently, so this is a rerun of one I never tire of.  ~SHS

Q. Akiko wrote: "Very fond of cd yours. Wakan is my favorite. I listen over and over. Artwork shows many flying saucers. Are subscribed you to ancient alien theory?"

A. Yes. I’d describe it as "directed panspermia – with fringe benefits" A subscriber? Yes. I was a charter member! I saw The Day the Earth Stood Still (the B/W movie from the '50s) at 10, and read my first Ivan T. Sanderson book ["Abominable Snowmen: Legend Come to Life"] at age 14. These days, many (if not most) UFOs seen are likely from one of the many secret space programs, ('theirs', 'ours', there's so many it's hard to tell), and therefore not necessarily ET's ride. Still: could be… Anyway, I thank you for your words. I am greatly honored, Akiko, and I hope you liked the tweaked-up re-release of the song when it came out as a single. (Did you hear the musical saw sound?)

~ use these (free) song players one of two ways ~

1. click on the arrow in circle to play that song. your screen stays here, or

2. click on the left-hand artwork. this takes your screen to the soundcloud page for a larger view of the cover art and audio waveform. after that track plays, other SE tracks will automatically play in succession - or backspace back to here.
