Tennessee & Other Stories...
"For Chew, Tennessee & Other Stories... is the culmination of many paths leading out of the wilderness. Like how the waning South of old has given way to the new, his tale is a coming-of-age story starting with narrowly averted self-destruction and concluding in a painful resurrection. This theme is woven musically and thematically throughout Tennessee & Other Stories... as Chew pays homage to his southern beginnings, a lineage that includes tobacco farmers and Methodists, bluegrass musicians and evangelists, gamblers and alcoholics. Chew's skill as a multi-instrumentalist (he takes the reigns on most of the playing on the entire album) adds tremendous intimacy to his ability to fully relay the album's stories with a singular voice."
