The Welcome WagonThe debut album by The Welcome Wagon came out in 2008 featuring a Brooklyn-based Presbyterian pastor (the Rev. Vito Aiuto) and his wife (Monique), the music being influenced by folk music, religion, popular culture, and church tradition. We ran into this over at Last.FM and thought it would be a good introduction to their music here on the Dose.

Vito says his songwriting is informed by his work as senior pastor at Resurrection Presbyterian Church in Brooklyn’s Williamsburg neighborhood. “A pastor is supposed to care for people, to help them to love God, to engage with their lives and their joys and their sorrows,” he says. “I’m only interested in writing music that will speak to that. I’m writing as a pastor, wanting these songs to speak God’s truth into those situations.”
