"It’s more of an island theme which colors “Sweet and Wonderful” as a smooth acoustic guitar line anchors Cogswell’s rich vocals to bright blasts from a horn section, accented by some warm background vocal" Andrew Greenhalgh-music writer.


all i know, is day by day.
and day by day, i don't know much.
i wanna write a happy song, but i don't feel it.
i'm getting ill, with these thoughts of you gone.
just coincidence, or pain of loss i feel,
wearing shorts in winter , frost in summertime
either way we flip, i'm heads up bound for you

sweet and wonderful, your love, your smile,
i just can't get enough of, i want to see you happy now,
as long as its with me, ou, i'm praying its with me,
fully full and free, call me honey,
and sugar we can flow to the sea,
to the sea, flow to the sea, yeah baby.

you don't need eyes just to see, no
and you, don't got to know.. just to be.
stay with me awhile, next week you might be gone.
then we'll have something to remember, not just.. the space between us.
don't say goodbye, before you say hello.
don't choose a river, if you don't want to flow.
don't be a stagnate pond, don't rot my memory,
let's flow to the ocean, and we can both be...

no one else, i'll ever need,
baby but if your not with me, i might not dream no more,
i know its only been a moment or two,
but i know i just can't' live without you in my world baby.

sweet and wonderful….
don't walk away, no baby…

Stephen Cogswell San Francisco, California

Stephen Cogswell is a remarkable singer and songwriter with a knack for creating island beats and breezy tunes that are not too unlike music by Xavier Rudd, Dave Matthews, Jack Johnson, and even Darius Rucker. The vocals are strong, poetic, and earthy throughout. If a beach had a soundtrack: Floating would be the answer.
