Chris Wilcox – “Old Shore Troubadour”

Earlier this week, Chris Wilcox released a new single called “Old Shore Troubadour”, his first new release since the full-length debut Chris Wilcox & the Boys dropped last year. This one was recorded at the renowned Echo Mountain in Asheville, which is the same studio where SUSTO tracked their most recent album, Ever Since I Lost My Mind, and as per usual was produced and mixed by Matt Zutell of Coast Records here in Charleston.

Upon first listen, “Old Shore Troubadour” was already one of my favorite Chris Wilcox songs. The song explores a life on the road, stopping through his hometown of Baltimore for one night only and being reminded of the paths his life has taken since he first left home. It hits a nostalgic nerve, and feels a lot like a song about growing up and the self-reflection that often comes with that, whether or not you can personally relate to the aspect of life on the road.

In case you missed it, Chris & the Boys also ripped a live stream from Coast Records the other night, where they played “Old Shore Troubadour” and another new one called “San Antone”, plus banging cover of “Sledgehammer” by Peter Gabriel featuring John Shields of Little Stranger. See that here.
