Just two words: Sufjan Stevens
With the ever-modest Sufjan Stevens, it’s hard to tell if his music was actually a true labor, difficult by any means, or if he’s so naturally gifted that he just sat down one day and wrote the songs. Personally, it’s even still a mystery to me if Stevens is trained in any of the multiple instruments he plays on his albums or if he really does just “try to play them because they were around,” and honestly I enjoy not knowing for sure – the beauty of Stevens is that whichever is true, his humble boyish personality remains the same. It is certain, though, that Stevens has a talent in storytelling and composing that no other musician in his niche can come close to.
