andPresent: Cory Chisel & the Wandering SonsBased in rural Appleton, Wisconsin, singer-songwriter Cory Chisel forged his first connection to the power of song through the music he heard in church. His father was a Baptist minister, and his mother played piano during services, instilling in Cory an early understanding of language and melody. Along with his band of country roots-rockers The Wandering Sons, Chisel earned much critical acclaim in 2009 with the album "Death Won't Send A Letter," his full-length debut for RCA Records. With Grammy-winning producer Joe Chiccarelli (The Shins, The White Stripes) at the helm, Chisel's plainspoken, intimate songs were transformed into lush and nuanced recordings that highlight his rich and unique vocal tone. The band included Jack Lawrence (The Raconteurs, Dead Weather), Patrick Keeler (The Raconteurs, The Greenhornes) on drums and Carl Broemel from My Morning Jacket on guitar. The recording led Rolling Stone to proclaim Chisel as one of the "Best New Artists" of 2009. In 2010 he appeared along side Tom Waits, Jim James, Andrew Bird and more on the award winning Preservation Hall Jazz Band's album, Preservation. He has toured the world including appearances at Glastonbury, Newport Folk Festival and Bonnaroo, and opened for Lucinda Williams, Emmylou Harris, and Jackson Browne. Chisel's sophomore album is slated for a summer 2012 release.
