I love Billy Stewart...
I love Billy Stewart. I want you to love Billy Stewart too. I love him because if his voice were a fabric, it would be velvet. I love him because if his music were a day, it would be the most mellow of May days. He hailed from Washington D.C. and enjoyed modest success in the 1960’s. He wrote and sang jazzy, soulful music, with a distinctive scat-singing style. Tragically, he died way too young in a car accident in early 1970. Now, a few decades later, his music can be somewhat difficult to find.
Not a problem though if you have a MCPL Library Card. Simply go to our website at http://montgomerycountymd.gov/library, let the Books/Movies/Music tab drop, and click on Music. Scroll down to the American Song resource:
and you will be prompted to enter your library card number and PIN (if you don't know your PIN is your 4-digit birth year). Billy Stewart can be found by entering his name in the search bar. Listen.
