Welcome to STEWARDSONGS.com
We invite you to listen using the free music players, bottom of this page. If you don't have music-quality computer speakers, plug in good stereo headphones if you got 'em.
To our valued repeat visitors, followers and admitted fans: welcome back. For your ears we keep old tape rolling, discs spinning, gears meshing and the organic machinery of writing, rehearsing and recording humming. The results are unpredictable - which is as 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 we don't take ourselve too seriously. For instance: "Hall of Fame" in What's New (as well as bona fide info about new releases).
You may have another reason for being here. Seeking info about some music recently heard, shared, streamed or on a playlist? Searching for info about a particular song, band, recording artist or musician, past or current? Check SONG INFO; ‘Bandography’ on the ABOUT page; pics and artwork in PHOTO/ART GALLERY; and there could be some relevant bits in Q&A.
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.
We're giving away the Farmhouse Garage Band album (predecessor to STEWARDS ECLECTRIC) old-style CD and related merch FREE to those who write a review of any FGB or SE song.

FROM THE DIRECTOR:
I’m a born musician – add songwriter, arranger, composer, engineer and producer. I’m like the kid who dreamed of driving stagecoaches in the old west - learned about horses and blacksmithing, coach building and leatherworking, surveying and mapmaking - and while I was doing all that, someone invented the car and the airplane. Timing is everything. So my consortium cohorts and I go happily onward in the unbounded fun of making music.
Maybe you’ll find something of interest. Enjoy your visit.
Q & A of the Week:
Q. Hollywood voice-over artist Aaron Meza writes: "Hi Steve, Thanks for sharing about Woodstock. You can reminisce anytime! Myself, like Joni [Mitchell], must be content with honoring that time in a different way – and I did recently with a wee jam with my buddy Gary, (in the army overseas, 20 years old at the time). We played songs by the performers and it was fun, and we included Joni’s song." A. Hey, thanks Aaron. Alright, cool on yer jamming. Yeah, got some memories even though I was only there Sat. to Sunday morning. Here’s one: It was Sat. afternoon. Mark Leach and I had hung close to stage front for a while, partook and passed a few things, and then went walk about, heading up the hill. Went to a funky makeshift food stand, and even the guy working there passed me something. Bought a burger, dressed it with ketchup. Then I heard him tell the next guy, “Sorry, man, we’re outa burgers. Still got a few hotdogs.” “Are ya gonna get more?” the guy asked while several other interested people were listening. “I dunno, man” he said, looking around, “I think it’s gonna be awhile.” Took a bite of the burger when this amazing drum rhythm started. “What the eff is that?” I said to Leach. Took another bite, then this incredible mesmerizing lead guitar stuff filled the air. I handed the rest of the burger to the guy who didn’t get one. “Cool, thanks, man!” He took a munch and passed it to somebody else. (That was Woodstock.) Everybody stopped what they were doing, looked at the stage and wondered WHO THE EFF IS THAT? It was some band named Santana – and I had just bought the last hamburger at Woodstock.
