Artist Watch: Cory Chisel & the Wandering Sons

Born Again

I had first gotten wind of Cory Chisel when he played the recent Newport Folk Festival.  On my way to see the David Wax Museum, I passed by the stage where Cory Chisel & the Wandering Sons were playing.  I stopped and listed to him play the first track off of his latest album, Death Won’t Send a Letter, Born Again.

Chisel’s music has a haunting, folk-soul vocals and lyrics which are complemented by sounds of oboe, piano, bass violin, and percussion.  All together it creates a near gospel-like folk rock that will bring you back again and again.  Each time you hear the album you’ll find something new to enjoy about it.
