No Stone Unturned
Dark and passionate. Driving and ethereal. Objective and introspective. Soul soothing and insightful. Matthew is a powerful singer and a dynamic performer who frequently plays 12 string guitar at live shows, but also plays bass, keyboards, drums, an occasional mandolin, pots and pans, metal shelving, water bottles and just about anything else that makes melodic or percussive noise. Combining his vocal and instrumental talent with the songwriting sensibilities of artists like Seal, Peter Gabriel, Sting, and Dave Matthews Band, Stewart has created a hypnotizing and highly memorable debut. Pop? Rock? Alternative? Acoustic? Folk? World? Euro? This is music that is hard to categorize...a marriage of styles and sounds that are instantly familiar (read 'radio friendly'), yet strikingly unique. A strong sense of style pervades the music; it is instantly and recognizably his own. No Stone Unturned is Matthew's first solo outing, recorded in late 1999 and released in 2000. Album #2 is currently in the works, and sneak previews will be available soon from MatthewStewart.com.
