The Welcome Wagon

The Welcome Wagon's debut album Welcome To The Welcome Wagon is one of my favorites of 2009. If you are a fan of Sufjan Stevens then you should definitely check out The Welcome Wagon (Sufjan produced and helped arrange the album). I love the lyrics and the sincerity of this album.

The Welcome Wagon is comprised of a pastor, the Reverend Thomas Vito Aiuto, and his wife Monique. Here is how their label Asthmatic Kitty Records describes the music of The Welcome Wagon:

"They execute a genre of gospel music that is refreshingly plain. Their hymns are modest and melodic takes on a vast history of sacred song traditions, delivered with the simple desire to know their Maker—and to know each other—more intimately."

Here is the first single from their excellent album:
