"Magazine Review"

"Claiming classic influences that run the gamut from Neil Young's Harvest to the Who's Who's Next, Brett Ryan Stewart carves an enviable imprint on this sterling debut. Stewart's music navigates a road atlas of emotions, from the insistent pulse of opener "Yet Again (Politic)" to the half-whispered drift of "Needle & Spoon" to the nocturnal deliberation of "Closer." Even within a single song, he reveals an ability to temper cloaked ruminations with sheer elation, as manifest in the sweeping refrain of "Don't You Ever." Lyrically, Stewart is equally agile. "I'm reaching out so I don't cave in," he
declares on "Appalachian Heartache." It's a supple twist of wordplay from a talent worth watching." - Performing Songwriter Magazine


"Necessary Lies" (2007)



Before moving to Nashville in 2006, Brett built up a reputation in his hometown of Delaware recording and producing over 30 different artists in all genres. By this time, Brett had become exposed to producing new artists in Nashville while never forgetting the foundation provided by his uncle Will and the vintage Sun recordings. In 2004, Brett co-produced songs by his uncle, which received critical acclaim and steady rotation on European National Public Radio.

In 2007, after a recording process that spanned 2 years, Brett released his album "Necessary Lies." Brett says, "This album culminates my experiences of heartache, loneliness, and my disgust with the current political landscape." "Life is too damn fragile for there to be so much human deception." All these "necessary lies."
