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. If you do not have music quality computer speakers, please use good stereo headphones if you got 'em. (The head recording engineer thanks you!) Before the pandemic thing, we were just about to cross over to new recording technology, but have sidelined that for now, and we're just getting caught up with ourselves. New material is coming out.

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 current business sense).

There's music. And then there's business. Put them together, you have diametrically-opposed concepts, like 'jumbo shrimp' only not as tasty, or like that referenced by Sir Edward Bentley's quote: "Rock and opera - two words that should NEVER go together".   

     Life, as you've probably noticed, is too short - a problem that can be  blamed in general on those who've been effing with our DNA for years. We can spend our time writing the music, playing and recording it, doing things meaningful and fulfilling to the soul, or  it can be diverted  to jumping through little plastic hoops  for a few cents thrown upon the stage. We choose the former.

We see a  dramatic upsurge of our song player spins.

Welcome new lissners in Melbourne (Australia), Hamburg (Germany) and Bogota (Columbia).

Q & A of the Week:

[The following was relayed word of mouth via a mutual acquaintance at Cornell U.] Q. Hi Steve! I used to work at Richard’s in T-Burg. [Trumansburg NY] You wrote a song about the place, and I wonder what happened with it and if I could somehow hear it again. I liked it from Kathleen A. Hey there, Kathleen. I remember you! Your inquiry segues beautifully into the fact that, (referencing the original demos), we are re-recording both songs! What are ya, girl, psychic? The SE version of Gone to Richard’s and Thanks for Stoppin’ – Bye will soon be released as one of our customary digital singles, done like back in the 45rpm vinyl days with two songs, A side and B side. As always, the full play will be available here FREE, and if you want to download them to your device, they will be available through nearly all distribution venues for less than a dollar each. Thanks for your interest, Kathleen. Fantastic social meeting place, that. It was a great place – legendary! – and I still miss it.
