Eclectic Song Stylist Raspin a singer that sings to your soul
Raspin “WE DO WHAT WE DO” CD as heard at STARBUCKS in store air play nationwide.
Raspin Stuwart who, on his CD WE DO WHAT WE DO, takes so many approaches in his song writing that critics have said, “His songs place a premium on intelligent lyricism, demonstrating a clear and almost writerly (as in print) sensitivity - an all original catalog that bears an eye opening, ear opening blend of influences.” The songs are perfectly suited to such environments as Los Angeles and New York, reflecting diverse cross-cultural song writing and performing – having a life outside of what could be contemporary. Acoustic folk pop, jazz, R&B, even sprinkled with a touch of gospel – it is all in the music and is created out of a spontaneous energy that is very much Raspin’s stylized original vocal and performance trademark. WE DO WHAT WE DO is a collection of lustful, political and often daring songs that seem to emerge from deep within Raspin’s soul. Raspin boldly projects his ideas and sounds as his hypnotic and haunting voice carries over his hummable melodies and occasional key changes in a sublime balance that few musicians achieve, yet constantly strive for. Critics have noted that he has a style all his own in a singing range that’s wide and varied. He is truly an eclectic artist, who resides at that intimate place where the harmony of sound and the words mingle in meaning. That is why Raspin’s adult contemporary music, that carries an offbeat twist, is very appealing and has a long-lasting impact on his listeners.
