Welcome to STEWARDSONGS.com – home of the multi-genre musicians' consortium called STEWARDS ECLECTRIC.

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.

Our group 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, Ludwig Von Slingerlund, Sarah Ann Green Eagle, Floral Clustah, Maxie Ripnit and Lurch Hooper ~ among others.

The main thing here is the music. As always, we invite you to listen using the music players at the bottom of this page. (Instructions there if you're new to this; it's 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 for this!) There is no obligation, and no left-handed musician 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, © stewardsongs.com!

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.


FROM THE DIRECTOR: 

 Continue onward!

Aside from inquiries about music, one question we often get is: "Why do you always show a UFO"? Well, consider  that most forms of  'entertainment', (music, sports, movies, TV & video, and   politics), are designed distractions to keep peoples' minds off of what's REALLY happening...

...and what's really happening is  more  amazing, bizarre and mind boggling than Roddenberry's Star Trek, Lucas' Star Wars or SCTV's Star Heads.  Amazes me that some people are (supposedly) still asking "Are UFOs real? DUH! A better question would be: which ones are  ours and which  are theirs? And - if it's one of theirs - which of the 60-some known species are they?   But let's not get caught up in fear. Some are helping us, and some are helping themselves. It's like that all across the galaxy. Ultimately, the fog will lift and we'll be able to see more clearly – with a little bit o' help from those who really are our Star Friends. 

*   *   *     *   *   *

Until then, take a deep breath...  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 wait.

*   *   *   *   *   *   *

Some of our invented music categories like  'Goodtimes Jukie-box', 'Bowling Ball Rock', 'Left-handed Hip Hop  & 'Barefoot Zappa'  are NOT recognized  genres... (let's hear from you, Spotify!) ... much like our word "Eclectric".

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.

Hey  to:   Nick B.; to  Jado, to the musician known as 'D', to rudyetoledo; to Danielle, Ashley, Jamstone;  BAM and that  Coneflower Guy - and to others for the  'likes',  comments, shares & reposts  on their personal playlists.

Thanks for lissning & mucho appreciado...

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

Shoot an email, say what you think.

Enjoy your visit.  Come again.

Q & A ~ we HEAR from LISSNERS :


To Steve at Steards Electric [sic] Q. “Your the frackin songs guy. You [have been] promising more country stuff with Chubbie Pickens playin.” [Bona fide character and consortium member the Chubbie Mr. P. has been SE banjo man since 2017.] "So where is it, buckwheat?" [signed] Smokin Jay

A. OK. Somebody may be pulling somebody's leg here, but anyway: Hey, check out the bluegrass haymakin’ song. Yer guy Chubbie is playing on it. So go smoke a jay, pardner!

*   *   *   *   *   *   *

Q. My boyfriend wants to know what’s up with the hand sign on [the cover art for] Postwar Jump and also on your Spotify page, etc. - Sandi

A. While some have assumed that it's simply my own modified version of the Vulcan 'Live Long and Prosper' thing, the hand sign shown has multiple historic derivatives. In more modern times, it is The Sign of The Big W, and generally signifies buried treasure. Originally thought to mimic the star constellation Cassiopeia in ancient times, it was first used regularly as a secret code by a band of mysterious warrior monk musicians called the Dazed Temple-aires.

This once-powerful group, (with a string of top ten hits for EMI), came under dire persecution when they lost their recording contract. The survivors were forced to flee Europe with instruments and all their secrets, sailing in a lighter-than-air craft built from alien materials they discovered under King Soulmann’s Temple.
