Sufjan Stevens Biography - Reconnecting with his Folk Roots
Born in Detroit, this singer songwriter began experimenting with music during his college years. He performed in Michigan folk rock band Marzuki for a while but decided to go solo in 1999, releasing his debut studio album Sun Came a year later. Stevens' sparkling Middle Eastern folk melodies immediately caught the attention of critics, who praised his multi-instrumental proficiency and heavily textured sound. In 2001, he followed up with his sophomore LP Enjoy Your Rabbit, an electronic storytelling epic based on the animals of the Chinese zodiac.
In the latter part of the decade, Stevens continued to capture hordes of fans with his intricate sonic output. In 2003, he elevated his reputation with the release of Greetings from Michigan: The Great Lake State, where he placed his home under the microscope to a patchwork of 20 different instruments. In 2005, he cemented his status as a fully-fledged indie rock auteur with his magnum opus Illinoise. Recorded in a gothic church in the dead of night, it became one of the best reviewed albums of the decade, spawning many international accolades.
Fast forward 10 years and Stevens has just released what is thought to be his most intimate and pure album yet. Named after Stevens' mother and stepfather, the heartbreakingly personal LP Carrie and Lowell sees the lauded artist return to his wholesome folk roots.
