Cory Chisel and Adriel Denae -- the core duo behind Cory Chisel and the Wandering Sons -- distill generations of folk rock and Americana to create a timeless sound.

This couldn't be more evident than on "Old Believer," Chisel's most recent full-length album, recorded in Nashville and produced by Brendan Benson. The album showcases Chisel at the height of his rootsy power, commanding a sound steeped in the history of American music, yes, masters like Redding and Dylan, but also Chisel's own spiritual, rural Wisconsin upbringing. In this respect, Chisel certainly is an "Old Believer," deconstructing decades of American folk rock -– the songs and artists he grew up with -— and re-amalgamating it in deeply affecting ways.

Adriel Denae's vocals complement Chisel's timbre with an introspective element, which, if it were a color, would be a warm ochre. The two play off of each other to create an impressive range of styles, reveling in the interaction. "Laura" is underscored by Denae's rich voice, scaling keys and an "Our House" element hidden in its verse. "I've Been Accused," heard here, feels wholly Latin-Western, with ghostly elements of Don Henley, while "Times Won't Change" is fiddle-led buckshot hip-fired from the Bible Belt.

No matter the genre, what binds these tunes is Chisel's artistic outlook and timeless belief that as long as there is passion in art, it will never die.
