People’s Picks: Christopher Paul Stelling

These songs and the people who sang them mean more to me then I could possibly put into words. I tried to collect songs from that mystical period In time before genre and classification muddled and confounded a listeners sensibilities into the presupposing anything about the music - beyond the uniqueness of the person playing it. Before commodification took over, we had a wealth of truly unique women and men creating eerily beautiful songs that dealt with all matters of peril and uncertainty, of faith and fear, and of life and death. This has always been the music that informed me, encouraged me, and kept me inspired.
