I did everything for you
Bloggers everywhere have had a love affair with Sufjan Stevens for years now. His debut in 2000 established him as a talented multi-instrumentalist, but it was with the release of his 3rd LP that Stevens began to really acquire much acclaim. Greetings from Michigan: The Great Lake State is the first in his "states project" (a series of albums focused on each of the 50 states in the US) and pays tribute to his home state. The most impressive part about this album is Stevens ability to play over 20 instruments. The lengthy titled "For the Widows in Paradise, For the Fatherless in Ypsilanti" is probably my favourite from the Michigan album.
Favourite Part: The banjo that is the backbone to the song.
When not working on an album, Stevens contributes music to benefit compilations, releases Christmas albums, is known to be a literary figure and has even written a short film score for Natalie Portman's Eve.
