The Center for the Arts, University at Buffalo presents SUFJAN STEVENS on Friday, October 30, 2015 at 8:00pm. Tickets are $43.50. Gallant will open the concert.

Sufjan Stevens is a singer-songwriter currently living in Brooklyn, NY. A preoccupation with epic concepts has motivated two state records (Michigan & Illinois), a collection of sacred and biblical songs (Seven Swans), an electronic album for the animals of the Chinese zodiac (Enjoy Your Rabbit), two Christmas box sets (Songs for Christmas, vol. 1-5 and Silver & Gold, vol. 6-10), and a programmatic tone poem for the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway (The BQE). In 2010 Sufjan released an expansive EP (All Delighted People) and the full length The Age of Adz, a collection of songs partly inspired by the outsider artist Royal Robertson.

His most recent release is an album entitled Carrie & Lowell. Carrie & Lowell has already been named to best of 2015 lists by Rolling Stone, the Los Angeles Times, The Guardian, The A.V. Club, Billboard, SPIN, Paste, and ranked #1 on Stereogum’s “50 Best Albums of 2015 So Far.”

Born in Detroit and raised in Northern Michigan, Sufjan attended Hope College, in Holland, Michigan, and the masters program for writers at the New School for Social Research.
