"Songs From The Gasstation Review"

"The songs are lovingly crafted and exude a simplicity and frankness that is complemented by the stripped-down production . Agnews voice is brisk with character ,sounding slightly gin-blossomed, yet to the point On “Sink Or Swim” , his untarnished falsetto is like that of a drunken angel, whereas on “Its No Surprise” , he is sentimental yet controlled. Having cajoled the well-regarded Ron Sexsmith into appearing on the album, the fruits of this collaboration, “Gypsy Girl” and “I Give You Hope” , are truly beguiling". - Hotpress

"Songs From The Gasstation Review"

"Recorded in the Canadian studio that gave the album its title, and assisted by Ron Sexsmiths leading henchmen, Agnew knows his way around a decent tune, as evidenced on tracks such as Down To The Wreckage, Its No Surprise, Lonesome Road and Tin Can Morning. Hints of Springsteen, Dylan and Waits peep through and while its clear that Agnew is still trying to find his real voice, its fairly obvious hes not too far away from it"
- Tony Clayton-Lea - The Ticket - irish Times

"Live Review"

"There's enough of Agnew in the songs that sets him apart from many other singer/songwriters operating in similar territory. Several songs are superb: Victoria Square, about time spent in Rostrevor, is pure and elegant; Lonesome Road is the rustic swing of Ronnie Lane transported to the Noughties, while the wistful Hopes and Wishes is probably Agnew's finest song to date." - Tony Clayton-Lea - Irish Times

Dundalk singer/songwriter has over the last number of years toured with such acts as Ron Sexsmith, Beth Orton, The Four of Us, Damien Dempsey, Josh Ritter, Mark Geary, Rodrigo y Gabriela, The Proclaimers, Juliet Turner, Brian Kennedy, Gemma Hayes and many many more. Stewart has built up a strong following through all of his live shows.
Stewart has also released two albums, "Tailor Made and "Songs from the Gasstation". "Tailor Made" was recorded in his hometown in 2001 and "Songs from the Gasstation" was recorded in The Gasstation studio in Toronto in 2004. This features a host of Canada's finest musicians and also features guest vocals and piano from one of Stewarts favourite songwriters Ron Sexsmith.
Both albums have sold in excess of 4,000 copies in Ireland from touring alone which is quite an achievement from an independent act.
This year has seen Stewart back touring with acts like the Guggenheim Grotto, Juliet Turner, Gemma Hayes and Zoe Conway. He has also been back in the studio recording a new album with producer Lou Natkin, who has worked with such acts as Brian Wilson(Beach Boys), Joan Jett and The Monkees. Stewarts nationwide tours kicks off in October at the Tain Festival in Dundalk followed by appearances in Monaghan, Grange (Sligo), Wexford, Derry, Galway and finishing with a final date in the Spirit Store, Dundalk.
