Amanda Stewart (from the album Venom available as a self-release) (by Danny McCloskey)
The album title gives fair warning when Amanda Stewart collects her music in Venom. A Countrified Indie Rock rhythm revolves when Amanda Stewart as she draws the line (‘I don’t need your permission’) while making a request of love. She hops on board a ‘long black train’ with Cabin Boys to admit ‘this ain’t love, it’s just the “Drugs”’, grabbing the steering wheel with white knuckles as she races down the highway to stay ahead of her thoughts in the salvation sway of “Saved”. The songs on Venom are sonic stage plays, Amanda Stewart walking her characters through the dark alleys of our own thoughts.
The Venom title track drifts lazily before focusing on a slow trudge as Amanda Stewart ‘gives in to the pain’, riding the sparkle of strings for the love confessions in “Right Next to You”, and swearing ‘love don’t wait for the sun don’t shine’ as small town kids watch stars in “Town Pump”. For Venom, Amanda Stewart has a wish…‘I just want people to feel ok with whatever they’re feeling. There are songs about a lot of serious and difficult things, and also songs about fleeting moments in my life, and I know others have had similar experiences. I want people to get these songs stuck in their head, so that they can be reminded that someone else has been where they may be at now, or have been before in life’. She achieves her goal in Venom when Amanda Stewart walks with an Indie Rock stomp through “Window”, climbs “Lonesome Mountain” making it a personal journey, and adds an edge to “Barn Crazy” with a thick guitar riff.
