Patrons of the Arts by Bro. Stephen

This isn't the first time we've featured Bro. Stephen on Moist Melodies. In fact, his "Tears on Tape" was one of the first songs we ever posted on here. Still, the guy makes great music, and I doubt this is the last we'll be hearing of him. He grew up in Michigan (I know that sucks, but we can't hold it against him), in a very religious household. That certainly informs his songwriting, reflected in the fact that his first album was called Baptist Girls. Anyway, he falls into the singer-songwriter style of folk music; most of the album is just him and his guitar. He manages to keep the sound fresh, and he is not limited at all by it being just him on the record. There's also the coolness factor; this band is about as unknown as they come. 900 views on this video on Youtube. My middle school French project  broke the millenium mark and this didn't? Bullshit. Absolute bullshit. This is the kind of music that everyone should be listening to. Hear for yourself after the break.

If you liked that song, I strongly recommend the rest of the album, which you can stream on Spotify.
