Sufjan Stevens (SOOF-yahn; born July 1, 1975) is an American singer-songwriter and musician born in Detroit, Michigan. Stevens first beganreleasing his music on Asthmatic Kitty, a label co-founded with his stepfather, beginning with the 1999 release, A Sun Came. He is bestknown for his 2005 album, Illinois, which hit number one in the Billboard Top Heatseekers chart, and for the song "Chicago". Stevens has released albums of varying styles, from the electronica of Enjoy Your Rabbit and the lo-fi folk of Seven Swans to thesymphonic instrumentation of Illinois and the Christmas-themed Songs for Christmas. Stevens makes use of a variety ofinstruments, often playing many of them himself on the same recording, and writes music in various time signatures. Though he hasrepeatedly stated an intent to separate his beliefs from his music, Stevens also freely draws from the Bible and other spiritual traditions, oftenincorporating mystical elements into his music. Many of his songs have spiritual allusions. He says he does not try to make music for the sake of preaching. "I don't think music media is thereal forum for theological discussions," says Stevens. "I think I've said things and sung about things that probably weren't appropriate for thiskind of forum. And I just feel like it's not my work or my place to be making claims and statements, because I often think it's misunderstood."During a 2004 interview with Adrian Pannett for Comes with a Smile magazine, when asked how important faith was to his music, heresponded, "I don't like talking about that stuff in the public forum because, I think, certain themes and convictions are meant for personalconversation." Stevens currently lives in Kensington, Brooklyn, in New York City, where he makes up the Brooklyn staff of Asthmatic Kitty Records. « hide
