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 brings Stelling’s gothic folk mix of howling fingerpicked stomps and crooning laments to an even further realization. Early 2014 will see him touring europe for the second time while he preparing for his third record, Labor Against Waste.
