Video Du Jour: Norah Jones w/Cory Chisel

Posted in Rock Moment with tags , , on September 19, 2012 by 30daysout

We caught both of these acts at SXSW this year – Norah Jones with her country-roots band The Little Willies, and Cory Chisel & the Wandering Sons.  It’s absolutely no surprise they are now touring together.

Chisel played an excellent country rock set at a celebration of Gram Parsons and the Foundation established in his name – Cory was aided most ably by singer Adriel Denae and a band belonging to his friend Brendan Benson. Although we didn’t see it, Jones also performed a pop set featuring tunes off her latest, Little Broken Hearts. Cory Chisel and the Wandering Sons have also released a new album, Old Believers.

Here are Chisel and Denae joining Jones onstage in Italy to perform the Gram Parsons classic “Hickory Wind.”

We caught Cory Chisel and the Wandering Sons this spring in Austin at the Gram Parsons Foundation Party and we loved the band’s roots rock with country and soul flavoring. Chisel, from Wisconsin, is an engaging singer and songwriter but the support from bandmate Adriel Denae on backing vocals and keyboards is vital.

Brendan Benson produces and plays on Chisel’s new album: Old Believers, out next Tuesday, and here’s “Times Won’t Change.”

We like this band – Cory Chisel and the Wandering Sons, from Appleton, Wis. They play a fine blend of rock with country, gospel and blues influences. Here’s “Over Jordan,” which they played at SXSW recently.
