Cory Chisel is an Americana, folk rock songwriter that started in Appleton, Wisconsin.  Often performing with his band the Wandering Sons.  The band was signed to RCA Records subsidiary Black Seal Music in 2007. Black Seal has since ceased to exist and the band remains independent.  The band has performed on “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon,” “Conan” and “The Late Show with David Letterman.”

Chisel and the Wandering Sons toured in support of Norah Jones in 2012. Chisel also helped launch a music festival, Mile of Music, in Appleton, Wisconsin, where he spent several years of his youth. Its first year, 2013, featured Rodney Crowell, Justin Townes Earle and Norah Jones.  We are very pleased to finally allure him to our stage!

In this episode’s monologue – delivered from the backstage dressing room with the one lonely little lightbulb burnin’ – Mike talks about how he both fights and celebrates light pollution on the back forty.
