Gift page


Firefighter/Paramedic in the Chicago Suburbs. Past life singing and Theater. Totally unprepared for the digital age. I still think analog tape reel. Tells you how old I am I guess. Don't do Facebook either; not because I'm anti-social, just too lazy to learn it.

All the posted tracks here are collaborations with Collecting Pool (Dan D'ambrosia) unless specified. We have been neighbors 4 doors down for 14 years and never knew it until 2 years ago. I thank him greatly for helping me remember how much fun this is. Please move over to the Collecting Pool site for a comprehensive list of collaborative and solo tracks from Dan Dambrosia and Collecting Pool. You will not regret it.

My goal is to produce some of my own stuff in the future. But I'm a slug and I admit it, so for the near future anyway, I'll be posting collabs with Collecting Pool and all you fine Cloudseeders. Thanks to all of you for being so warm and welcoming to this community. I will strive every day to be worthy of that acceptance. Looking forward to participating and listening. Ciao!!!!

Cirro-stradivarius Glen Washington, Oswego, IL, United States

    Oh yeah, Stewart. I'm hearing a lot of influences on this one. Simple minds shoots through to me the most. Love the more mainstream pop approach. Great production and natural sound to the instrumentation. It occurs to me I should start at the beginning with the earlier music and move backwards. Love the youthfullness and agility of your vocal back then. But I really enjoy how you sound now, with the depth, and breadth and focused sensitibilities of your more mature vocals now. What a time capsule for you. Well done.

    Your lyrics are just excellent in all your tracks. Descriptive and always evolving like a novel. A definable beginning, middle and ending. Completely composed, just like the music. Always a pleasure Stewart.

    @El Greebo: Oh Stewart man, we can not thank you enough for that. So good to have the fires stoked every once in awhile. Life has taken over for Dan and I both here lately and it has been several months since we've worked together. One day soon here we'll work something out. I'll be checking out your page here this evening. Can't wait. I've been away too long. All the best to you.

    This track has a completely different soundscape then the others you usually do. The timbre on this track seems very bright and high pitched and vibrant. Are you using more high end frequency range here perhaps? The depth is still there to be sure; but it seems to my ear to be more up there in the tonal spectrum.

    There is such an incredible purity of heart and emotion in your music. It is so engaging and infectious. It just seems to pull all tension out of you and transport you upward to a place of real equilibrium. Wonderful to hear Chris again as well. Beautiful soprano sax, or is that the oboe?

    You have nailed the feeling and the genre of deep southern blues all the way on this one. Respect to the dobro skills.
