What: Alternative Country
Where: Calgary, AB
While Todd Stewart may be new to the solo arena, he’s certainly no spring chicken, having spent the last six years as a founding member of award-winning Alberta band The Northern Beauties, with whom he still performs.
On his latest release, the six-song EP Everything You Want, Stewart travels intensely personal paths, intertwining his stark, heart-on-the-sleeve lyrical approach with beautifully desolate, pedal steel-infused melodies that captivate the listener. Although comparisons to his work with The Northern Beauties may be seen as inevitable, Stewart’s solo output offers a mellower and more delicate approach to songwriting that’s still every bit as satisfying.
