Biography

Meet Jeff Stewart, a professional singer/songwriter from Toledo, OH. Jeff supports himself playing approximately 220 gigs a year in NW Ohio/Southern Michigan. To quote Rod Lockwood from the Toledo Blade, ”He has a great voice, a soulful instrument that oozes personality, and his song writing has a lively quality that’s fresh and personal without ever copping out for easy clichés.”

"Mix Tape Blues" is Jeff’s first solo release. “Can’t Sit Still,” is being released to radio as a debut single. Previously, Jeff and producer Gregg Leonard have placed songs in four different movies.

An interesting aspect of Jeff is his dual career as a visual artist. His cover for "Mix Tape Blues" is a self-portrait inspired by the classic Miles Davis record, “Sketches of Spain.” In a special collaboration with SFC Graphics, a mulit-panel reproduction of Jeff's painting "Trees No. 1" was installed on the David Whitney Building in downtown Detroit, MI as part of the city's Super Bowl 2006 beautification campaign.

Tracks are also available for radio download at www.airplaydirect.com. Live dates are being booked at this time in support of this release. More information is available on Jeff at www.jeffstewartmusic.com, www.cdbaby.com/cd/stewartjeff and www.myspace.com/jeffstewartmusic.

Lyrics

Forty Dollar Dress

Written By: Jeff Stewart

Forty Dollar Dress

There I was next to you
and you wanted it that way
You said don't leave me alone
Cause my heart was the breakin' kind
You took my love like a thief
Then you put your arms around me
And whispered so sweet

You may not love me honey
But what a beautiful mess
How I ended up with you
And this forty dollar dress

It's alright, don't you cry
If I walk out that door
Cause I've been heart broken
By a pretty girl before
But I must have been dreamin'
When I looked in your eyes
The stars above they lined up
For me and you tonight

You may not love me honey
But what a beautiful mess
How I ended up with you
And this forty dollar dress

Rescue me, I'm a whole lot like you
It's alright, babe it's just me and you
It ain't like we got anywhere to go anyway
