Cory Chisel & the Wandering Sons – “Born Again”


Cory Chisel & the Wandering Sons – “Born Again”

the son of a baptist minister, cory chisel grew up immersed in the spiritedness of gospel music. a spiritedness that still informs a sound further influenced by iconic artists like howlin’ wolf, aretha franklin, and sam cooke. the native of the upper midwest breathes a refreshing vitality into a sometimes inwardly-focused prosaic genre. we really dig cory (and his wandering sons), if you’re not already up on him, familiarize yourself.
