When an artist you’d never heard tells you he considers his latest record to be “more of an offering than a group therapy ssession” you veritably race to binge on his old stuff. Admit it. Feeling another’s pain from the safety of your iPod is delicious. Resist, until you’ve first devoured Tilt from Nashville singer-songwriter, Brett Ryan Stewart.

You’ll know why in the first 3 minutes of this show.

Brett Ryan Stewart at "Home" in Nashville

Want to know a secret about the creative process of this Tom Waits/ Tom Petty /Pearl Jam hybrid of an artist? In our 30 minute chat Brett told us one thing he’s never divulged in any interview. (no spoilers :) )

About the album…

A culmination between Stewart and guitarist/producer Chris Tench, Tilt gives listeners a window to the landscape of Stewart’s heart and mind. Together with Nashville based producer Tres Sasser (Will Hoge/ James Dunn), and Roger Moutenot (Guster/Lou Reed/Yo La Tango), the clean elegance and effortless power of Stewart’s voice confronts the inevitable and the unknown from Stewart’s self-professed “awakened state of mind”, which he attributes to the recent, sudden loss of two friends.

Brett is Helping Homeless Vets…

Brett has teamed up with Voices United for Veterans to help stamp out veteran homelessness. One in four homeless in America served in the military. They were there for us. Let’s be there for them.

She’s a rare combination of high musical intellect (as you’d expect of a classically trained Italian opera diva), great range and perfect pitch, with the ability to write modern songs that pour from her soul into yours.  Born […]

Show #7 gilli moon

gilli named her just-released sixth album The Stillness to reflect where her soul lives these days. In that quiet place under the radar. A stark contrast to her meteoric rise from the Australian wildnerness to Los Angeles and indie music icon status. With the same futility reviewers must feel when they try, with words, to […]
