About Cory Chisel
Like many artists before him, Cory Chisel first connected with the power of song – and the spellbinding possibilities of live performance – through the music he heard in church. The gospel’s rich vernacular of loss and redemption also informed his innate poetic sense and lyrical range. Chisel, the son of a Baptist preacher was raised in Babbitt, Minnesota and later Appleton, WI. His new album Old Believers is set to be released June 26th on Readymade Records and was produced by Brendan Benson in Nashville, TN. Old Believers is the follow up to his debut album Death Won’t Send A Letter, Which received great critical acclaim both in the US and abroad. Chisel was named one of Rolling Stone Magazine’s “Best New Artists.” 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.
