The Welcome Wagon is based in Brooklyn, NY. The duo, comprised of Thomas Vito Aiuto and his wife Monique, are best known for their hybrid of gospel, indie pop, and folk songs. After ordering a guitar online, the couple taught themselves to play, write, and arrange music. Their artistic intuition, coupled with Monique's history in art design and Vito's past in poetry, led to the release of their debut record, Welcome to the Welcome Wagon, in 2008. The album was produced and released by Sufjan Stevens, as was their following project, Precious Remedies Against Satan's Devices in 2012. Their newest project, Light Up These Stairs, is set to be released October 20th on Gospel Song Records.
