Sufjan Stevens (born July 1, 1975) is an American singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist.
A master of what he called the ‘strummy-strum acoustic guitar song’, Stevens’ affecting music tackles issues as tricky as abandonment, death and Christmas with family.
When Sufjan Stevens hit the scene with his sick debut album A Sun Came in 2000, people knew that he was a great and very cool artist. People immediately wanted to sound like him, but achieving that was not so easy to do.
Sufjan plays everything from lo-fi rock to folk to electronica so a versatile guitar is extremely important in achieving his signature tone. He uses many different very cool guitars to achieve the sound that he plays including a Harmony Bobkat electric guitar, a Fender Stratocaster and a Martin D-28. He use both acoustic and electric. However these guitars are far too costly to use and buy so it’s much better not to do so.
