“Every song on his debut album Songs of Praise and Scorn and cooks with both down-home comfort and avant-garde brio, Stelling building earthy folk troubadour stories over a fluster of wild arpeggios.” – Village Voice
“Songs of Praise and Scorn is a fine way to introduce someone who should
be a voice to be reckoned with in the years to come.” – American Songwriter

Christopher Paul Stelling is about to wrap up a US tour that has seen him on the road performing nearly 60 shows since mid-February, but the NYC troubadour is showing no signs of slowing down anytime soon. He recently recorded an unprecedented 10 song Daytrotter Session, and now he’s announced new tour dates in support of Norwegian songstress Ane Brun, the legendary Malcolm Holcombe, and The David Mayfield Parade, along with a homecoming show at Communion NYC’s series at Public Assembly.
CPS also caught up with Sleepover Shows in Boston earlier this month, to record a video for one of his new songs, “Writhing In Shambles.” The video includes an interview with him discussing his beautifully worn, one-of-a-kind guitar. Daytrotter was kind enough to let us release a free MP3 of the track from his recent session as well. CPS released his critically-acclaimed debut album Songs of Praise & Scorn on February 21st.
Live, his shows range from whisper-quiet, to a wall of sound through his expertly finger-picked guitar melodies, incendiary howling vocals, and foot stomps set against his signature storytelling, which conjures up a vast and alluring palette of unearthly yet organic imagery. Having graced the stages of a hugely diverse gamut of venues, both small and large, on the reputation of his live performance alone, this record has confirmed his place among today’s most vital and relevant songwriters.
