Christopher Paul Stelling

Christopher Paul Stelling is a songwriter based in Asheville, North Carolina. Known for incendiary performances and his own blend of fingerpicked guitar, howled laments, and southern gothic lyrics, Stelling has toured the United States and Europe extensively.

After self releasing albums Songs of Praise and Scorn (2012), and False Cities (2013), Stelling released Labor Against Waste (2015), and Itinerant Arias (2017) on the Anti records label. He has been featured on NPR's Tiny Desk series, performed on CBS This Morning, and is a frequent performer at the Newport Folk Festival. His next album is slated for February of 2020.

When not playing guitar he can be found walking his fierce hound, Ida Mae.
