Christopher Paul Stelling and Band Perform "The Cost Of Doing Business"

Music site Twangville.com has just released a video of Stelling’s song “Cost of Doing Business” that features Stelling and his new band - Julia Christgau singing and doing percussion, Kieran Ledwidge on violin and Matthew Murphy on bass, delivering an impassioned performance within the church like confines of Echo Mountain Studios in Asheville, North Carolina.

Watch the clip of “The Cost of Doing Business” here: http://twangville.com/26405/twangville-premiere-christopher-paul-stelling-on-the-cost-of-doing-business/

As Stelling explains, “The song muses on the idea that there's not simply a monetary but also a physical toll when the business that one is involved in is their art, their creative life force, their soul. And of course it has to reference that Faustian myth, that took hold of the human psyche long before Robert Johnson took his guitar to the crossroads.”

“A voice to be reckoned with in the years to come.” - American Songwriter
