Christopher Paul Stelling tours Europe this September, October, November


Folk musician Christopher Paul Stelling has been on the road for five years. In June 2015, the Florida native released his third LP, Labor Against Waste (ANTI-), then toured Europe and the U.S. on his own, and last month opened for Ben Harper & The Innocent Criminals. So while his apartment might be in Brooklyn, he's only been in New York for a total of six weeks since the beginning of 2015. As he sees it, beginning in 2011, touring became his job—even before he had released his first two albums, 2012's Songs of Praise and Scorn and 2013's False Cities.

Christopher Paul Stelling is not alone in taking the stage with just an old guitar and the stomp of his foot. What sets him apart is an imagination that is completely his own, yielding stories that feel like parables that you slowly realize have never before been told. His imagination also lives in his fingertips as he traverses from country blues to flamenco to claw hammer banjo all on his trusted "Brownie," an old nylon string guitar that's been traveling the globe with him for years. He has no rule book. He sees no limitations. He is an anthology of his influences and he is the first one of his kind.
