One of the ‘00s most idiosyncratic singer-songwriters, Sufjan Stevens achieved cult stardom thanks to a prolific and increasingly ambitious output which spearheaded the movement critics described as ‘New Weird America.’ Born in Detroit in 1975, the multi-instrumentalist Stevens first began performing in Marzuki, a folk-rock band named after his marathon runner brother, while studying at Hope College, but went solo after moving to New York. There, he graduated with a fine arts degree at the city’s New School.
Released on the Asthmatic Kitty label he co-founded with his stepfather, his debut album, A Sun Came, arrived in 2000 and was followed by Enjoy Your Rabbit, a song cycle based on the animals of the Chinese zodiac a year later.
Stevens’ penchant for the unconventional continued to attract attention with 2003’s Michigan, the first part of an intended 50 States Project which he later revealed was a promotional gimmick. But despite all the near-universal acclaim, Stevens only gave up his day job at Time Warner’s children’s book division following the release of 2004’s lo-fi folk album, Seven Swans.
After embracing a symphonic sound on 2005’s Illinois, Stevens fully committed himself to the holiday seasons with Songs For Christmas, a five-CD box set featuring both original and classic festive compositions, and scored his first US Top 100 entry with outtakes collection, The Avalanche. 2007 saw Stevens explore other creative avenues, premiering a cinematic piece titled The BQE at a Brooklyn Academy of Music festival, contributing various short stories and essays to several publications, and making guest appearances on records by the likes of The National, Rosie Thomas and David Garland.
Stevens returned to the fray in 2010 with the All Delighted People E.P., and sixth LP, The Age of Adz, an experimental affair which peaked at a career high of No.7 on the Billboard 200.
He continued to explore his collaborative streak when he teamed up with fellow Brooklyn-based musicians Nico Muhly and Bryce Dessner for Planetarium, a classical project based on the solar system, and producer Son Lux and rapper Serengeti for a 2014 self-titled album recorded under the guise of Sisyphus. Inspired by the death of his mother, the critically-lauded Carrie & Lowell gave Stevens a second US Top 10 album in 2015.
