DM Stith is a new artist with Asthmatic Kitty Records who has his debut recording, the EP “Curtain Speech,” coming out December 9.
It’s the precursor to his first full-length out early next year. The EP features appearances by many of the extended Asthmatic Kitty community including Sufjan Stevens, Shara Worden (My Brightest Diamond), Rafter, Sebastian Krueger and string quartet Osso.
The songs on Curtain Speech reflect a literal autobiography, referencing the songwriter’s own apprehension to emerge from behind the veil of anonymity (from closet songwriter to recording artist), as well as his recent nomadic ventures from Brooklyn to Buffalo to Bloomington, Indiana, where he’s currently enrolled at the graduate school for design at Indiana University. Written and recorded over a year in Brooklyn, Houghton and Holland, Michigan (an odd coincidence with the label’s own history), and mixed in San Diego with Rafter Roberts, the final EP features appearances by many of the extended label community including Sufjan Stevens, Worden, Rafter, Sebastian Krueger and string quartet Osso.
