Not Up for This
'not up for this' is a collection of introspective, acoustic songs recorded, lo-fi, by Stoops in his Puget Sound apartment in Seattle, WA in 2000. The album reveals a deep sense of longing and urgency that is accentuated by it's raw minimalism. Since it's release, Stoops moved to NYC where he completed schooling to become a nurse and is currently working as a home hospice RN in San Francisco, CA. Continually influenced by life's experiences and the world around him, Stoops is currently in the process of recording a new album, of similar disposition to 'not up for this', anticipated for release in 2014. 'Stoops has the more traditional singer songwriter material with a voice like a more robust Jules Shear and songs that seem to gain power with each verse.' -the stranger.
