Cory Chisel and the Wandering Sons and Dawes Team Up For Tour
With the fall release of the debut album Death Won’t Send a Letter, Cory Chisel and the Wandering Sons continued their relentless touring schedule through 2009 that began with the previously released EP Cabin Ghosts. After a stop at Carnegie Hall, a TV debut on Jimmy Fallon, and a trans-continental tour with Brendan Benson, Cory and his band are excited to tour the US again and visit more cities, some new and some visited many times before. Cory’s shows are at times both mesmerizing - when he’s performing quiet beautiful songs like “So Wrong For Me” - and rollicking, as evidenced when he sings first single “Born Again.” The emotion in Cory’s voice that was noticed early by fans and critics alike remains constant and unwavering with every performance.
Dawes has spent the past several months on the road, as they’ve been celebrating the release of their debut record, North Hills (“When You Call My Name” was featured as NPR’s Song of the Day this week). Musician and producer Jonathan Wilson (Elvis Costello, Jenny Lewis) produced the album, which was recorded in his cottage studio. The album was recorded completely live, which led to the raw, beautifully rootsy songs that have gained attention from fellow musicians as well as critics in both America and the UK. Dawes’ soulful and emotional stage performances have garnered new fans in every city they’ve played in across the country. Each band member brings his own enthusiasm, honesty and palpable commitment to the mission at hand, creating a stage presence that is engaging, charming and charismatic.
