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.
