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. It could be just one word. The PLAYER (below) offers 3 of the 8 tracks of the original 2010 album. Hear the rest. [See WHAT'S NEW for details.]
FROM THE DIRECTOR:
I was a born musician – add songwriter, arranger, composer, engineer and producer. I’m like the kid who dreamed of space travel, spent years learning everything about rocket propulsion, and while doing all that, the Secret Space Programs went to Mars using anti-grav. 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. Still riding the waves of the Woodstock 50th, Hollywood voice-over artist Aaron Meza wrote: "Hi Steve, Thanks for sharing about Woodstock [in Q&A]. You can reminisce anytime!..." A. Hey, thanks Aaron. Woodstock in ’69 was NOT about partying, drugs or even music. It was all about people. Hundreds of thousands of people thrown together into a situation they could not have imagined or predicted, a situation that conventional wisdom would mark for disaster, a potential do or die scenario. There were NO fights, rapes, thefts, or examples of violence of any kind. This occurred without a police force. People worked together to make that happen. Everyone there, musicians, attendees, townspeople and local folks, caregivers, grossly outnumbered (!) cops, anyone whose eyes met yours was genuinely your friend and part of your family.
THIS is what human beings can do when they want to, when there’s a common need, when the darkly-inclined want to see you fail miserably and you’re determined not to let that happen. This thread running through our spiritual tapestry will be used to weave the future - soon.
