Christopher Stewart is a Seattle artist who released a nine-song CD called Escape Control Return Home last year under his own label, Shitbird Records. The album is sparse, singer-songwriter disc with acoustic and electric guitars for accompaniment. His bio describes his songwriting as, "something like a Neil Young collaboration with The Eels, only produced by Brian Eno; while blending a vocal gruffness similar to Bob Dylan and a vulnerability reminiscent of Elliott Smith." Might sound strange, but it's reasonably accurate too.
He is currently recording a full length LP and plans to tour the west coast when it's finished.
Listen for yourself on his MySpace page, or catch him live on Friday, April 11th in Olympia, WA at Le Voyeur.
