"Mix Tape Blues - Review #3"

"... musician Jeff Stewart's latest release is an unadorned, beautiful collection of songs. 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 cliches. This is the work of an artist who bears a bit of a sonic resemblance to Bruce Springsteenand deserves a much wider audience. - Toledo Blade - Rod Lockwood

"Mix Tape Blues - Review #2"

Stewart's raspy and passionate vocals resemble Bono at the height of his U2 career, while many of his storytelling-style songs parallel Cat Stevens or Bob Dylan. (Michael Punsalan,Toledo Free Press) - Toledo Free Press - Michael Punsalan

"Mix Tape Blues - Review"

Jeff Stewart . . . creates vibrant, intense and slightly unusual paintings. He brings those same qualities to "Mix Tape Blues." His voice is a ballsier version of Ray Lamontagne's soulful draw . . . on seven songs of love and life, which he views in a way that's nakedly open and as deep as the pit. The album closes on a high note with "Say Goodnite." Any song which includes the immortal line "Searched for grace but I found you first" is worth the admission price on its own, but the other six offerings here are well worthy of investigation also." - Americana UK - Jeremy Searles

Jeff Stewart's approach is straight-forward: a man, his guitar, and a wide-eyed look at that crazy thing called love. His tightly crafted original songs paint the picture of a heart, once broken, suddenly surprised by the good fortune of discovering love anew. Its music for anyone that has ever walked into the sunshine of a new future, however uncertain.

Playing as many as 240 shows a year, Stewart is comfortable sharing his vibrato-tinged voice and aggressive guitar playing with a live audience. His discography includes prior self-released projects with The Flecks, The Starlings, a 2006 solo effort, Mix Tape Blues, and a 2014 solo album titled Can't Sit Still. Together with producer Gregg Leonard, Stewart has placed songs in multiple television and movie projects.

Jeff Stewart has been voted Toledo's best male singer on 5 different occasions in the Toledo City Paper's annual "Best of Toledo" poll.

Stewart's dual career as a visual artist not only compliments his songwriting, but also gives him the kick of supplying his own album cover art. 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.
