christopher paul stelling is still stunning

My appreciation for Christopher Paul Stelling began over a year ago when I was lucky enough to spend a weekend chatting, brunching, and concert-going with him at the 2014 Savannah Stopover festival. CPS was a force to be reckoned with, his gravelly, earnest voice ringing through every venue he played in, dark basement bars seeming even smaller as we all leaned in close to hang off every lyric. It's amazing and so, so gratifying to see this TIOJ-fave garnering such a pile of well-deserved praise lately.

Just yesterday, CPS's NPR Tiny Desk Concert was released and it's a stunner. See for yourself!

Don't miss Christopher Paul Stelling's brand new album Labor Against Waste.
