About Carl Storie: Born in Tennessee and raised in Indiana, Storie first came to national prominence as a young man writing and singing the Billboard Top 40 Hit, “Maybe the Rain Will Fall,” with The Chosen Few for RCA Records. Carl Storie and The Chosen Few were then signed by GSF Records and released their album, Limousine in 1972. Eventually, the group moved to Indianapolis and, once known as “Faith,” rebranded themselves to “The Faith Band,” recording four albums together between 1976 and 1979.
1977’s Rock’n Romance produced one of his biggest hits, “Dancin’ Shoes.” In the mid 80s, Storie moved to L.A. and worked the club scene, which led to another recording contract. With his big move to London, he released Blinding Tears. After returning back home to Indiana, Storie started The Carl Storie Band, which still performs today.
About Brett Wiscons: Born in Chicago and raised in Plymouth, Wiscons admired artists such as Sade, Jeff Buckley, Edwin McCain, Eagles and the Sundays while growing up. Within these influences, his personal music is reflected with a touch of jangly pop, a dash of soul and moody acoustics.
In a short window of 33 days, Wiscons successfully raised over $11,000 via Kickstarter for his new recording project. Production was finalized in the winter of 2014, and the EP 22 was released worldwide via Wiscon’s own label, MAD Diamond Entertainment, on March 3, 2014.
