“Dream This” released on 15th August 2017. The songs are original singer-songwriter tracks by Stan Stewart. But the artist proceeds will go to a child advocacy charity which is dedicated to the prevention and treatment of child abuse. During the pre-release period, fans have already enabled donations of about $300.00. Thank you!
This page will serve as #DreamThis central.
Don’t you wish you could have heard this album before it released? That’s what VIP fans got for their support. Check it out.
Stan says, “I’m deeply grateful to my friends and fans who encouraged me before, during, and after this album release.” For example, Tracy D. Ready — a creative videographer, photographer, and musician himself — posted this in his Social FreeLancer group on Facebook: “Creative and highly original offering from my friend, freelance musician Stan Stewart – #nowplaying in my office… Nice job Stan!”
Here are a few more:
Thanks, Stan! I have to tell you that your sense of harmonic/melodic balance & the musicianship to pull it off are impressive. Well done!

Naked Dreams and LiveSongs
Check out the live versions of these songs on a second release, “LiveSongs” plus a radio interview and more news! Naturally, I’m performing these songs live including this concert which I dubbed “Naked Dreams”. See why in the tweets below.
2/ By “naked”, I mean that I’ll have no amp, no effects, no microphone. Just me and a guitar, outdoors at Ithaca’s WaterMusic celebration.

Naked Dreams – nothing to dress up these songs https://t.co/s1PTZTXjN0

Here are some excerpts of my original tunes from that one-hour video.
Here is the first of my singer-songwriter tracks: “Yet”. Click here to learn more about this track, hear recordings that are not on the album, and view the video on the release blog page.
And here is the second release (click here to read its story): “Confession:Reflection”.
The third song asks us to look into each other’s heart (click through to read the story and view the video):
Song four is about vibrant, awake dreaming (rather than staying asleep) complete with video:
Song five is “Quake”. The new version (fresh arrangement, added lyrics and bridge) can be heard in versions that are not on the album. Be sure to check out the whole story.
“Love Is On Repeat” is the sixth singer-songwriter track. There’s a pretty amazing story behind this one if I do say so myself. (You’ll also find a video with the pre-album guitar version of this song on that page.)
The seventh song is “Drink In”. The story behind this one is quirkier than usual. Click here to read it. There’s also a cool fractal video with lyrics.
“Mountain Rose” is a song about beauty and love. Oh, big surprise. Please also check out the video for this song.
Please help protect children. That’s the story behind “Snow Story”. There’s also a rundown of the technology used to create the rock/studio recording of this song and a post about the music video.
The tenth song has a crowdsourced choir at the end of the refrains in the studio version. I’m so excited about this!
You can preview the live version of the last song recorded for the “Dream This” album. The studio version (which is pretty awesome thanks to the added vocals by Jaydn McCune) is available on the album.
