					     The John Stewart Collection
           “... His work over the last 25 years constitutes a stunning body of lonesome reflections on
           the promise and betrayal of the American experience... His is a music of longing...
           a hushed hope that what is best in this country will somehow emerge....”
                 —A. Lin Neumann, Phoenix New Times

    John Stewart has spent a lifetime writing and recording songs that chronicle the unique people and culture
that is America. At age nineteen, John recorded an album for Roulette Records with his first folk group, The
Cumberland Three. During that same period, the young songwriter had the notable distinction of having several
of his songs recorded by The Kingston Trio.
    In 1961, John joined the Kingston Trio replacing founding member Dave Guard. During the next seven years,
the group released sixteen albums which included the hits Where Have All The Flowers Gone, The Reverend Mr.
Black and Greenback Dollar. As a member of the trio, he also composed many of the group's recordings including
Road To Freedom and One More Town.
    John left the trio in 1967 and established a world following based on over 40 solo releases. His Nashville
recorded LP, California Bloodlines was chosen by Rolling Stone as one of the 200 best albums of all times.
    In recent years, John's songs have been recorded by Rosanne Cash (Runaway Train was a #1 country hit)
Nanci Griffith, Joan Baez, The Beat Farmers, The Four Tops and others. He has renewed his passion for painting,
doing art shows and covers for his recordings and books. He continues to be a prolific songwriter and tours the
United States and Europe regularly.

               The Day the River Sang                                                                               (2005)
               The latest collection of new Stewart originals, again affirms John's credentials as one of our
               most overlooked painters of indelible musical pictures. Using the warm, minimal brushstrokes of
               his own acoustic and electric guitars, his long-time Dave Batti/John Hoke rhythm section, and
               occasional wisps of keyboards, harmonica and backing voices, John applies a similarly effective
               less-is-more approach to his lyrics and vocals.
