Labeled in Rolling Stone Magazine’s “Best New Artists for 2010,” Cory Chisel & The Wandering Sons had high expectations for their second album which has recently been released! The album, Old Believers, employs a singer-song writer style along with the ever loving folk harmonies of Cory Chisel and Adriel Harris to create a piece that embodies what we think when we’re in love, and out of love. “Old Love” and “Never Meant to Love You” are my personal favorites.
I stumbled upon Cory Chisel last year when he opened for The Head and The Heart at the Cannery Ballroom in Nashville. I usually do not enjoy the opening band, but was extremely elated when they hit my ears with what I at first questioned was The Head and The Heart, having no idea what the band looked like. This Wisconsin based folk rock duo has pulled at my heart strings, even inspiring me to cover their songs during my own duet performances in Nashville and Knoxville.
Though they are from Wisconsin, I believe it is apropos for me to write about this band on a Nashville music site because on July 23, you have the chance to see them for free at Grimey’s New & Preloved Music in Nashville on Eighth Street at 6 p.m. I will no doubt be there and would love to hear from you if you decide to come! This album is fresh off the press so share it with your friends before they share it with you!
