**Christopher Paul Stelling
Take one look at his road-worn, weathered guitar, and you know that Christopher Paul Stelling is a musician with a story to tell. Stelling has revived a sense of musical storytelling and mastery over his instrument that was thought to be long since forgotten. With a heartfelt voice, dynamic finger-picked guitar stylings, and a songwriting approach that combines folkloric, mythological, and religious imagery, Stelling has forged a style that is all his own, yet hauntingly familiar. He is a Brooklyn-based musician, hailing originally from Daytona Beach, Florida.
