Sufjan is a talented man. Not only is he arguably one of the greatest song writers of our generation, he can also write a mean article. He wrote a blurb on the asthmatic kitty sidebar (blog) about his youth. The article is immensely entertaining. He gives you a little bit of insight of what growing up was like with a unique name like Sufjan, and some obstacles of growing up that even indie rock stars go through!
Sufjan found a few old demos/tapes that he made during college and posted one to give us a taste. The song is called ‘Sofias’ Song’ and it only proved this man has had talent for many, many years. The track is not even 2 minutes, but we get enough to get a taste of the developing artist that is Sufjan Stevens. I am begging for a new state album from Sufjan, but a collection of these rarities would satisfy me in the meantime!
