Cory Chisel On Mountain Stage (December 28, 2010, NPR: Mountain Stage)

From Appleton, Wis., Cory Chisel comes from a family that made music together, instilling Chisel with a vast catalog of blues and folk music. Being the son of a Baptist minister also informs his singing and songwriting, as evidenced in "Born Again."

Chisel's 2008 EP Cabin Ghosts prompted touring spots with Rachael Yamagata, Josh Ritter and The Low Anthem, helping him build upon a strong regional following. Last year's debut full-length release, Death Won't Send a Letter, was produced by Joe Chiccarelli and features members of The Raconteurs and My Morning Jacket. His band, the Wandering Sons, is composed of longtime acquaintances Adriel Harris on vocals and organ, Miles Nielsen on bass, Daxx Nielsen on drums and Noah Harris on guitar and piano.
