Sufjan Stevens is an American singer-songwriter and musician from Petoskey, Michigan. Stevens first began releasing his music on the Asthmatic Kitty label, a label formed by himself and his stepfather, starting with 2000 release A Sun Came. However, it would not be until his 2005 album Illinois that Stevens' music would receive mainstream success, hitting #1 in the Billboard Top Heatseekers chart.

Stevens is very experimental with his music and he has released albums of varying styles, from the electronica of Enjoy Your Rabbit and the lo-fi folk of Seven Swans to the symphonic instrumentation of Illinois and Christmas themed Songs for Christmas. Stevens makes use of a variety of instruments, often playing many of them himself on the same track, and writes music in various different time signatures. He is considered part of the folk revival in indie pop, but his influences are very broad. His music has been likened to electronica and the minimalism of Steve Reich. Also, Stevens' music often has spiritual themes and many songs draw inspiration from Bible stories, most notably on Seven Swans.
