Closure a Musical Soap Opera
The concept for Closure was based on real-life events surrounding a friend of Stuart Maybe's. The album tells the tale of a marriage breaking up, affairs, and resolve. Stuart uses his broad songwriting brush to color in with various styles, from Lennon (A Good Place) to synth-pop (Drive), bursting with spite (The Snitch) and hope (Nothing But Time). It is what songwriting is supposed to do: invite you into a familiar world, construct characters with depth, and take you on a journey. Closure saw the growth of Stuart as an artist, both sonically and in his craft. As usual, he composes and plays nearly everything on the tracks. Stuart Maybe also records as Marlowe, available on CDBaby.
