My city songs unveil many unknown city legends, people, places, and events, both good and bad. I decided to have a special release for each city with a song and video in the appropriate genre. I’ve toured the cities I write about and personally shoot city footage with my Camera.
Seeing my "59 Miles to Jacksonville," song and name up in lights in Drew Barrymore's Roller Derby movie "Whip It," was the genesis for the “Donny Stew City Songs project," said Donny. "It seemed to me that only the big city's like N.Y., L.A. and Chicago get the great city songs.
As my city song project progressed, the length of the songs and videos varied. Some songs and videos were the standard three minutes or so, while other cities got multiple songs and some regional cities have been joined together to form city rock operas.
In the meantime, I have been busy writing new songs in clusters as well as one offs. I will be shooting mixing and editing the videos of the latest cities sessions & rehearsals. Once they're ready I will let them out with the red carpet treatment, with 110% personal touch for each one.
In progress is a Multi City, twenty song "Pirate Rock Opera" extravaganza with songs for Tampa Bay, New Orleans, Miami, Key West, Saint Marteen, Nassau, Cancun, Seville and more.
The Donny Stew City song collection is available at all the major digital outlets including itunes & Amazon.
