Sufjan Stevens, Damien Jurado, Denison Witmer Guest on New Rosie Thomas DVD
Published Aug 14, 2009Since it's impossible to know if Sufjan Stevens will ever release a proper full-length album again, all we can do is report on the myriad projects he's popping up in. From his BQE project to his work with Shannon Stephens, there's been quite a bit recently, and now he'll be appearing in a documentary about singer-songwriter Rosie Thomas.
The last we heard from Thomas, she had just released a Christmas album and was working with Iron and Wine's Sam Beam on an upcoming full-length. Now, she'll be featured in the film All the Way From Michigan Not Mars, a documentary that follows her work as a singer-songwriter that moonlights as the stand-up comic alter-ego Sheila.
The film is coming out on DVD on October 27, and will be released by Factory 25. The film features appearances from Stevens, as well as Damien Jurado and Denison Witmer.
The DVD will also be available in a special edition version that will come bundled with a vinyl release of some unearthed Rosie Thomas/Sufjan Stevens/Denison Witmer recording sessions.
