Christopher Paul Stelling

After releasing his debut album Songs of Praise and Scorn in February of 2012, Christopher Paul Stelling toured relentlessly. Singing his songs with a pure uninhibited delivery, Stelling has become known for the intensity and passion put into his live performances. Owing as much to the bards and troubadours of times long since past as to his contemporaries, Stelling’s ever developing commitment to his craft is obvious. His second album False Cities was released on May 21st, 2013 on the heels of his first european tour. False Cities is a record that is set to bring Stelling’s gothic folk mix of howling fingerpicked stomps and crooning laments to even further realization. The remainder of 2013 will see him touring further and harder than ever while he preps songs for his yet to be titled third record.

"The musical storytelling of Christopher Paul Stelling embodies a long road full of lush folkloric, mythological and religious imagery." - WNYC

"There is a reverence in and of Christopher Paul Stelling that is immediately perceptible. It's striking and it's powerful. It's a draw. It's a magnetism that sucks you right into the landscape that he sees." - Sean Moeller, Daytrotter

"...organic, southern Gothic-meets-classic folk. Everything about his performing style and songs was inspiring, refreshing, and also blissfully familiar." - Beyond Race Magazine

"...it wasn't until Christopher Paul Stelling performed that the final emotional wall came crashing down. As though Stelling was reliving every emotional moment that went into the creation of each of his songs, he dug deeper than I've seen just about anyone, and everyone in the room was channeled into every second. It was heartbreaking. It was draining. It was revitalizing. It was genuine." - New York Press

"To watch Stelling play is akin to watching a master work...The furious guitar lines flow effortlessly as tales are woven over them." - The Muse In Music
