Review : Cory Chisel and the Wandering Sons - Old Believers
American SongwriterBrendan Benson’s name isn’t visible on the outside package of singer/songwriter Cory Chisel’s sophomore album, but as producer/mixer/multi-instrumentalist and label owner, he is the man behind the curtain largely responsible for its success. Chisel’s folk-rock dips its toes into pop, country and blues without fully submerging into any of those genres. Occasional mandolin, female backing vocals, strings, pedal steel, fiddle, flute, pianos, banjo, organ and a wide range of other sounds spice these already zesty songs whose ringing melodies are bolstered by Chisel’s emotive voice, often reminiscent of both Lennon and Petty.

“This song makes me think of you guys,” Chisel later told the onlookers before taking a trip back a few years for “Home in the Woods.” Shortly after, the backing band headed offstage, leaving the duo of Chisel and Denae to run through a stellar, face-to-face rendition of “In the Deep End.”
It takes a special something for an act to pull off both a memorable “shots for everybody!” club show at a joint like Cranky Pat’s and also keep a larger audience inside of a historic, seats-only venue like the Lawrence Memorial Chapel in hand. Chisel has that something. ...full text
