Colter Wall visits Chicago Music Exchange

In today’s over-populated, jungle of a music scene, it’s rare a new artist makes an immediate, visceral impression on you with just one performance. Colter Wall, with his stripped down interpretation of Americana/Outlaw Country, is causing second glances with every show he plays. His smokey, rusted-out baritone vocals form a unique pairing with the twangy grit of his open-chord acoustic picking.  

Colter stopped by the shop looking for something with an antique flavor, and borrowed our killer 1937 Martin 00-17 for his show that evening at City Winery with Billy Joe Shaver.

Colter's music has already been featured in the new Jeff Bridges film, "Hell or Highwater" with outlaw-brethren Waylon Jennings and Townes Van Zandt.  We see big things in store for this Canadian cowboy, so check out his impromptu performance in the shop, and keep an ear to the ground for the next time he’s in town.
