Sufjan Stevens is a Composer, Artist and Musician

This is even more stunning live. The song itself is one of the only songs that makes me cry just a bit.

I’ve heard Sufjan describe his band as a 6th grade  orchestra class, he mentioned the juxtaposition of good classical music and silliness. This is the most profound and talented group of sixth graders I’ve ever heard. The song is about a good friend who died of leukemia.

Just in case you missed the composition of this live piece:

Banjo

Guitar

Keyboards

Piano

French Horn or Alto Sax?

Two Trumpets

Strings (Cello, Viola and two violins)

Drums (Orchestra Bass Drum included)

Various percussion like tambourine, xylophone and bells

    1. Thanks I guess… I tried finding Lee Blue on the link provided and could not listen to his music anywhere, I’m assuming this is spam, if not thanks for the invitation!
