Welcome to STEWARDSONGS.com ~ one and only social media offering and home of the STEWARDS ECLECTRIC consortium of musicmakers.

We are serious, but only about a few things. There's the music. [Use players at bottom of page.] Also: accurate history; the universal power of love; the light that it shines, and the interconnectedness of all things ~ but beyond that...? Well, see for yourself.

To our highly valued repeat visitors, followers, and admitted fans: welcome back. It is for your ears we keep this organic music machine humming. Creativity is unpredictable ~ which is how it should be. The idea is and always was to make new music and have some fun doing it.

This collection of musicians, singers, techies, friends, and occasional combatants includes some real characters ~ they would be the first to admit it! ~ and as head writer and director, The Steward rides herd on the talents of Toots Headstrong, Sings Two Bears, Lovechio Armitage, Thaler N. Shorter, Dawn Busz-Rider, Trombone Lefty, Fingers Arachnid, Floren de Kichen, Chubbie Pickens, Mr. E. S. Carpenter, Boots Wahndrunn, Ludwig Von Slingerlund, Sarah Ann Green Eagle, Floral Clustah, Maxie Ripnit, and Lurch Hooper ~ among others.

Of course, you may have another reason for being here. Seeking info about some music heard recently, shared, streamed, or on a playlist? 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? Sorry ~ there is no embedded search function. Check Bandography on the ABOUT page; SONG INFO; pics and artwork in PHOTO/ART GALLERY; and wade through the many tidbits ~ both relevant and obscure ~ in our often quoted (if not outright plagiarized!) Q&A pages, © (!) stewardsongs.com 

Then send comments, questions, love and hate mail by using the email addresses on the Q&A page, the CONTACT form there, text or even snail mail. We answer many inquiries directly, and if interesting on a broader scale, we sometimes post the exchange. Lots of lissners have written in, (as you can see), and we'd like to hear your comments. Thanks.


FROM THE DIRECTOR: 

We  put all our eggs in   this one social media basket ~ the stewardsongs website ~ it's our take on  Ben Franklin's pulp,   in this case: 'Poor Stephen's Almanack'. 

*   *   * *   *   *   *

One question we  may get so often that I don't put it in Q&A: "Why  do you always show a UFO hovering somewhere"?

Well,  artists traditionally try to show what they perceive to be the truth. And the UFO is an icon of the truth about the complexities of humanity ~ its past, present and future ~ and how 'We, the People' have been denied that. 

For instance, Neil Armstrong's entire quote from the moon (July 20, 1969) was:  "One small step for man, one giant leap for mankind. The UFOs are watching us as we are walking on the moon.That big clunky glitch in the audio just after 'mankind', [which I notice they have recently edited out!], was the U.S. government cutting off the truth. (Previously, when preparing to land the Apollo 11 LEM, the crew transmitted: "Oh, my God, you wouldn't believe it. These babies are huge, sir, enormous!")

Think this is BS? Take a look at that first press conference of the returning Apollo crew. These guys should have been ebullient, basking in the glow of their incredible accomplishment. But the mood of those three guys isn't just subdued; they're downcast, sullen and bummed out large! Check it ~ do I lie? (An excerpt of this is included in History Channel's Ancient Aliens  episode "Space Station Moon", airdate 7-29-16.) They  just witnessed the biggest, most amazing  thing in modern history, and were SO disappointed that  they weren't allowed to share it with the world. That truth was muzzled. (And it remained that way for their entire lifetimes.)

Oh, well... It's no good to get caught up in fear - or anger. Some ETs are here to help us, some only help themselves. I imagine it's like that all across the galaxy. Ultimately, the truth will out – and we'll get  help from those who really ARE our Star Friends 

*   *   *     *   *   *

Until then, take a  breath ~ and figure out which is big G as compared to little g GOD.  Hava mugga joe, a cuppa tea, glassa wine, steina brew, shotta scotchsplasha juice, or a cool drinka wahwah ~ and roll some of our tunes of remarkably different genres. Might as well  have some fun while we're here...

Q & A ~ we HEAR from LISSNERS :

          *   *   *   *   *      
Q. "I would like to see you guys play in person. Do you have a schedule of dates? (The ‘Crossing…’ piece is excellent.) Thanks. Joi2world” 
A. Sorry, Joi, we’re not currently doing gigs. Performing live can commandeer one's life. I know. I was out there doing it for years, and it takes most of the energy and focus needed to create new music ~ at least it does for us. New music is what currently floats this Eclectric boat. Been there, done that, you know, and moved on ~ but I’ll never say never! Thank you for lissning, for the appreciative verbiage, and be assured any live gigs would be announced here and in the newsletter.

Q. The Steward, Hi. Love "Reworking the Clone" and "Crossing Across". I read your recent comments ['From the Director'] about the moon landing, UFOs, etc. with interest, since I am familiar with the whole cover-up scenario. But the ‘entire quote’, as stated, was never on Ancient Aliens or any other show I’ve ever seen. Where does that come from? SkyWARD5

A.  It comes from William Mills Tompkins. Please read his book “Selected by Extraterrestrials(CreateSpace Publishing, 2015) - or chapter 28, at least. Perceived to be an amazing child prodigy design genius, he ‘dreamed up’ much of what made the '60s US space program a success, and he also went way beyond that. He was a major contributing member of a way-over-top-secret 'think tank' team at Douglas Aircraft known simply as "Advance Design". He taught Wernher von Braun a few things. Bill Tompkins was there in the control room at the Cape and witnessed that live transmission - both audio AND visual - along with the many other space agency and military professionals in attendance. They all saw this and heard this. Watch for our new single that tosses around this subject, to be released by Independence Day 2022 ~ and I'm happy that you like those instrumentals. Thanks for the SkyWARD5 writing.
