Sufjan Stevens Tickets for Sale

Sufjan Stevens was born on July 1, 1975 in Detroit, Michigan. Stevens is a musician, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist from Michigan with a fondness for the banjo. His songs have strong lyrics and deal with subjects such as faith, family and, in the case of Michigan and Illinois, his observations from his time in those states.

Sufjan Stevens started his venture in the music world as a member of Marzuki, a folk-rock band based in Holland, MI. Following the release of two full-length albums with the group, Stevens decided to go solo in late 1999. Stevens wrote and recorded his debut solo album in 2000 titled, "A Sun Came," which he released on Asthmatic Kitty Records, a record label he founded with his step-father. He later moved to New York City,

While in New York, Stevens composed and recorded the music for his second album, "Enjoy Your Rabbit." This album ventured into electronica. and was a song cycle based around the animals of the Chinese Zodiac.

Stevens followed this with the first of his 50 states albums, a collection of folk songs and instrumentals inspired by his home state of Michigan. The result, the expansive Michigan, included odes to cities including Detroit and Flint, the Upper Peninsula, and vacation areas such as Tahquamenon Falls. Melded into the scenic descriptions and characters are his own declarations of faith in God, sorrow, love and the regeneration of Michigan.

Following the release of Michigan, Stevens compiled a collection of songs recorded previously into a side project, the Christian-folk album Seven Swans, which was released in March 2004. He returned to his ambitious "states" project in 2005 with Illinois. Stevens spent the second half of 2004 researching and writing material for the second of these projects, this time focusing his efforts on Illinois, where he has never lived.

Illinois has been widely acclaimed, and as of January 2006, is the highest rated album of the year on the Metacritic review aggregator site, based on glowing reviews from Pitchfork, The Onion A/V Club, Spin, Billboard, Entertainment Weekly, Rolling Stone, The New York Times, and The Guardian.
