Cory Chisel And The Wandering Sons
By the looks of Cory Chisel, he looks Amish. But this folky songwriter is anything but. He grew up listening to blues and folk greats, thus sheltering himself from pop. This however worked in his favor because his knowledge is put to the test. "Death Won't Send A Letter" is his debut album and it sure does not seem like it. This album is not by any means a "debut" album. The mix of accordians, drums, clarinets, tamborines, and harmonicas create a very homey vibe. C.C.A.T.W.S. works hard to make this seven piece band sound just as beautiful and popular as any other pop/folk group.
