What’s up now? – Stan Stewart

    Stuff I'm doing right now includes:

      1. PresentSongsWorking from home on both my day job and my music projects. Please wash your hands, practice social distancing, and give lots of virtual ((hugs)) until this pandemic subsides. Be well, my friends!
        Everything else is still in full bloom here, like:
      2. Offering you custom songs to give to someone you love: PresentSongs. Everyone who has purchased one of these songs has been so happy with the results! I can't share most of them publicly because they are such an intimate present just for the recipient. Is there someone you care about who could use the boost of a song created as a beautiful sonic picture of their life? Get your PresentSong here.
      3. Seeking avenues to hope, peace, community, love, and kindness. Pondering how to connect my musical/improvisational arts with those avenues in our world that needs them so much. Click here to read my artist's mission statement.
      4. ✅ Creating an updated, streamlined look for this website. I'm excited to be working on this behind the scenes and hope to present the new version soon! ✅
      5. Writing blog posts of poetry, the unsigned music business, digital recording, creative process, and more (currently averaging four or five per month). Occasionally, I accept guest posts, but they have a specific set of requirements.
      6. Networking to create live-streams (private or public) and live gigs once the curve is flattened. I'd love to perform a house concert at your place next Autumn or Winter. Contact me if you're interested! If you're an interested venue, please visit my EPK and contact pages. Upcoming public gigs are just below this numbered list.

      7. Naturally, I continue to promote my own music, mostly instrumental compositions and improvisations. But there's also this: Dream This (my first singer-songwriter album) is literally my life story told in songs. Please stream/listen, enjoy and share! All artist proceeds from album sales go to a child advocacy charity.
      8. Working out 4 or more times per week.
      9. Updating my VIPs and newsletter subscribers, often with exclusive behind-the-scenes music, stories, and videos.

      10. Staying engaged on social media channels. I hope you'll friend me on your favorites.
      11. Practicing composing, songwritingpiano, guitar, and singing.
      12. Caring for my wife, our relationship, our beautiful home, our dog, and myself. (Lack of self-care means none of these other things can happen well.)
      13. Working my new day job.
      14. Any upcoming gigs will be listed here.

    If you ask me to do something else, I may say “no” and show you this page.
