The truth is that it’s been like pulling teeth trying to get new music out lately. I have such a huge backlog of stuff that I’m excited to share. You can listen to Lake Street Flames now and here are some links to keep up with other music I’m sharing!
Lake Street Flames | 2021
Lake Street Flames is a “classic single” with the A side being the title track and the B side featuring No Change Coming. These songs were written during the racial justice uprising of 2020 on Lake Street as fires, sirens, protesters, helicopters, troops with their armored vehicles and automatic weapons, tear gas, destruction, and yells swirled all around.
In Season | 2016
The songs for the 2016 release of this gospel-americana album experiment go back nearly a decade. Inspired by the ancient poetry of the Psalms, In Season was recorded at various locations in Iowa and Minnesota and features Jesse Klosterboer (piano, upright bass, accordion, trombone, vocals), Cara Lockard (violin, vocals), and Ryan Van Arkel (acoustic guitar, lap steel, vocals). Album artwork by Alxndr Jones. Recorded, mixed, and masted by Christopher Roberts/ Jive Mill (Rochester, MN). Downloads, prints, posters, and CDs available through the online store, download on iTunes, or stream on Spotify/ Apple Music.
Out of the Overflow | 2007
Gospel album released under the stage name Christopher Stephens. Recorded by Travis Huisman at Catamount Recording Inc. (Cedar Falls, IA). Album artwork by Erin Kirchoff and Penny Sund. CDs available through the online store, download on iTunes, or stream on Spotify/ Apple Music.
