The number-one son in Cory Chisel and the Wandering Sons isn't a son at all, but you'd better smile when calling her "daughter." The charismatic voice of Adriel Harris is exactly what Chisel's semi-Southern soul (he originally formed the band in Wisconsin) songs need to avoid becoming mere John Hiatt rip-offs, though there are worse crimes for a budding Americana songwriter. Chisel is a believable romantic, unafraid of pure sentiment and folksy nature trips, but he also has enough edge to land a cut in a motherfucking Samuel L. Jackson film and enough sense to give Harris plenty of room to harmonize.

Last Time: Chisel and Harris opened for Norah Jones at the Peabody Opera House in October and had the audience demanding an encore after their short, almost Civil Wars-esque set.
