Stew and Heidi Rodewald, the collaborative force behind Stew and the Negro Problem, are dedicated to their music making with a rare passion. After all, they recorded Making It after breaking up as a couple and navigating the currents of theatrical success with Stew’s hit musical-turned-movie, Passing Strange.

The album is a soul-pop-folk stunner with a wide musical and emotional range, from the title track’s organ workout to the ridiculously comic “Black Men Ski” to the matter-of-factly heartbroken “Curse.”
