Like notable musicians before him, singer-songwriter Cory Chisel forged his first connection to the power of song through the music he heard – and made – in church. His father was a Baptist minister, his mother played piano during services, and an upbringing surrounded by sermons and spirituals instilled in Cory the passion and portent of language and melody, and a fluency in the gospel’s rich vernacular of loss and redemption.

Based in Appleton, WI with his band, The Wandering Sons, Chisel’s upcoming six song EP, “Cabin Ghosts” reflects the inspiration of his upbringing with a spare Americana-saturated sound that is its own exquisite blend of folk-country and Delta blues. With his voice full of soul and longing, Chisel’s expressive vocals and the Sons’ loosely orchestrated, impeccable playing emerge fully formed yet somehow familiar and as confident in its sonics as in its lyrical echoes of existential grace and mystery.

Recorded mostly live at Robinwood, his family’s cabin in the wilds of Elco, WI and at a live concert in his hometown, a collection of stark and haunted melodies grew from the beautiful woods of his home state into the songs now captured on the “Cabin Ghosts” EP.General Manager
