No thanks, close this window
You don't have any music up and I absolutely adore you.
Great job Stu boo! :)
THANXS FOR THE NOTE--STU--hope your day is a great one--cheers--joe.
Joe thank you so much for the kind words and the 5 star for 'heart like a stone.' very kind! cheers stu
A friend of mine has an original RICKENBACHER BASS guitar--worth a small fortune--all one piece of wood-he kicks himself in the ass all the time--because years ago he was asked by TOM PETTY to be his bass player for his band and the HEARTBREAKERS were born--oh well--you win sometimes and you miss sometimes--my friend DAVID K. was with another band at the time--cheers--joe---I like your bass guitar in your picture--that was why I thought of the story.
we don't always make the right choice in hindsight...lol...my buddy hank has a ricker guitar.....he has had a few stroke's..good he's still with us...but he doesn't play very much now....he gave it to me and I enjoy it very much!
hey STU--love that--HEART LIKE A STONE--great demo--cheers--joe
thank you joe a little ditty I wrote and laid down 5-6 years ago
thank you so much for your kind review of 'this is how it goes(studio live). my friend hank had written a song that I was fooling around with the mandolin on and he didn't like it, so I wrote this song. my first mandolin centered song. I took some time one day and recorded all the parts. came out ok...cheers stu
your welcome. thought it was live. mandolins are tough to play i bought one last week but no good for me with my sausage fingers lol
Thank you guys for your kind review of 'lost in the pain (live)'. my friend hank wrote that song about 5 years ago. we were going to record it together, but his wife got sick and he didn't have the time. So I decided to do it myself. one time through for each instrument and the vocals. cheers be well.....stu
Hi Stu, been sitting down listening to some of you songs, great lyrics and love the rawness in the music, You Got It Man !! Take Care Les
Thank You les! It is raw....I like the way raw comes out
Haven't had a chance to do much recording lately. I must make time soon.....How are things in your part of the world.
Firstly Congrat's on all the top 10's, you'll be stoked !!, very cold over here at the moment -4 degrees at night, plenty of snow on the mountains, springs not too far away though.. Take care Stu !
3 days past we were 105 degrees F ....I believe that is 40 deg C.....looking forward to fall
'Relapse' a gritty little chunk of yum!
getting the sick on!
Congrats on " turn us back around" top ten!!:)))
Thank you soooo much Julia!...I'm still not sure how it landed there..lol
many more to come my friend
Lol!!!:)))))we never know!!! Well-deserved though!!
thanks for typing the lyrics out for turn us back around...i snagged them for my page:)
Thank you for your review of "turn us back around".....cheers
I am pleased you enjoyed the stripped down version. We plan to add percussion and bass into the mix at a later time. Just felt the song could stand on its own for what it is. It's funny how the addition or removal of instrumentation changes the emotional feel of a song. I really appreciated your input.
hi yeah I'm always amazed at how songs sound when you add other instruments. sometimes less is more.
i liked your song for its realness and rawness. I've done a few of those but people will always say add this add that and so on. but when you add instruments they can sometimes lose their edge. hardest part is what to add i think. i listen to a lot of stripped down songs. as they say you can tell a good song if you can play it on acoustic lol
i hope it was a good review:)
Lol...it was a good and honest review Stu ;)
'Landslide' absolutely beautiful! great job to both of you.....if you two ever get a chance to play together again, i'd love to hear a bit slower version:) that's just me.
Thanks soo much!!! Funny you said that cause we even slowed it down more than we thought.. But then we heard Stevie's version it was faster!!! But yeah a bit slower would be cool too!:)))!! Thanks for your kind comment!!!:))
i know the version you speak of....seems when lindsay and stevie do it in fleetwood mac...they slow it down and make it more melancholy
low-fi tastes so good.....enjoyed the listen
Congrats on the charts brother!
thanks its a suprise
Awesome Stu, great news! Hank will be happy to hear that....Cheers brother!
look's like i'll have to take him out for a burger
May want to buy him one too this time...lol
perfect job on 'Keeping Secrets'.....:)
Thanks soo much!!! What a sweet comment:))))
5 stars is one more than 4....Say Something (a great big world cover)....thank you
It's one louder....

Loved it! You always sing with such raw emotion!!:))
'the world is yours' and 'follow me' toe tappin, head bobbin goodness!...cheers stu
Thank you Cyndi and Julia for you kind words.
"Turn Us Back Around"......the healing power of love, music and friendship! Congratulations to you both for your beautiful, honest music; nice vocals and heartfelt production! Best to you both!
thank you cindy.....was a stu and sonny song
stu-vocals and sonny getar
damn fine job on 'Mercy'....love those gritty pipes
Thank you....much appreciated!
" turn us back around" what a great song!!! The vocals rock!! Is that your voice?!.... Love the rawness, emotion, and tone.. Reminds me of " Shinedown"( my hubby's fav.group)!!! :)) great lyrics as well! Loved it!!
thanks Julia.....yes that's me on the vocal...my friend sonny came over for a jam on Saturday and he started play the melody.....I said I liked it so we spent about a half hour writing then laid it down for posterity
Well it is a great song!!! Anxious to hear the final mix!:) amazing pipes there!;))
vocal compliments are always pleasant:)
....and it was nice to sing and not play guitar for once
Words cannot describe the emotion/ pain and hearfelt love I felt while listening to this song!! Tears were swelling my eyes... The lyrics are soo emotionally raw as are the vocals!! I can't imagine the pain of the loss... I am sorry for your loss, but You will see her again! Just like your song says! She is safe in the arms of Jesus waiting to see you and your family too:).... A line that struck me was" it was a lesson of faith" that is a powerful line, I do believe when hardships encounter us it is a lesson of our faith( how strong it is and how we can deal with the pain, only through His saving grace! God blessed you with more children.. That was another line that got me about her having sisters' now..... Again the emotion in the vocals were so raw and sweet... God Bless you and your family.. Julia
So other's know reading the prior comment.. Everyone take a moment to listen to "Caitie".........
