The Welcome Wagon

What happens when a Brooklyn pastor and his wife make an indie-folk album with their friend Sufjan Stevens? Awesomeness.

This article is from Issue 58: Jul/Aug 2012

Vito and Monique Aiuto are one of the busiest pairs in Brooklyn. Vito pastors Resurrection Presbyterian Church, a bustling congregation in Williamsburg. Monique is a full-time preschool teacher. They’re parents to a 5-year-old son. And as the duo Welcome Wagon, their second LP dropped in April on their pal Susan Stevens’ Asthmatic Kitty label. We recently chatted with Vito and Monique, over biscotti and chrysanthemum tea on a rainy day in Brooklyn, about their new album and what it’s like making music together.
