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

And to our 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. 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 headphones or ear buds if you got 'em - for the full sonic experience. (Our obsessive recording engineer pleads with you!) There is no obligation, and no music salesman will call.

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.

We turned the calendar page, but we retain our 2020 eyesight. Still, the game remains the same. I think halftime is over. We rested, recouped our energy and heard the coach's inspirational speech. Now it's time to take the field to start the 3rd quarter: all the players, offense, defense, special teams and a full compliment of officials and line judges. Game back on. Time to put some new points on the board.

*   *   *   *   *   *   *

We find that neither of our inventions  'Bowling Ball Rock' or 'Left-handed Hip Hop' show up as a recognized musical genre... (let's hear from you, Spotify!), much like our word "Eclectric".

So the dictionary should say:

eclectric |ek LEK trik| adjective: deriving energetically charged ideas, styles, or tastes from a broad and diverse range of sources, as in: their musical tastes are eclectric.

This creative commentary sent from California by 'The Musician Known as D': Q. "Just heard your website song Dec. 8 ‘80- same date 2020. 40 years possesses a biblical significance as does say, 40 days and 40 nights. It’s the number of testing… Remarkable - it laid aside its Wizard of Oz infrastructural ability to be perfect. Un-famously genius presentation heard spiritually around the world... Lissning to new j.l. & thanks 4 stopping bie ...double rainbow lyrics take me to their skie... Heard intro bowling alley, it ‘uz’a hard try, I needed & succeeded, ba’ first, i had’da cry. Why’d Johnny die? I’m’a gonna ask Lucy in the sweet bye & by & bie." Musician D A. Leaves me almost speechless, except to say thanks, D. You should be writing your own songs, but then: you are.

Fan and friend Jamstone wrote us: Q. "Hey Mister Steve, I liked your bowling ball [song] and Pops say[s] one [song] is going backwards. Is it? He says he sort of likes it but the animals don’t lik[e] it! We both think there are to[o] many sad songs." Jamstone

A. OK, we’re acquainted, so cut out the mister, sister! But you’re both right: Near the end of 2020, we released the ‘person finds horse, person loses horse' songs, the ‘Richard/Tri-County tunes’ of local interest and the John Lennon laments. They were all promises that had to be kept. Life is what it is, and music a reflection of that, so there will always be some sad songs - and it seems like too many. Well now it’s time to move on. Our next 2 releases will be energetic rockers. Yer Pops got good ears: Nonnel J. Blues IS running backwards, (except for the backwards vocals from J. Lennon Blues, which are, as a result, going frontwards. Everybody got that?) The fact that it bothers your 4-legged ones should not be unexpected. Your comments constitute a review, [Rolling Stone, eat your heart out...], so we're sending you and Pops the freebie vintage merch bundle. Thanks for writing. Take care, Jammie.
