Often compared to Neil Young, Van Morrison and Will Oldham, Virgil Shaw creates music that is bound to stand the test of time and guarantees to either break your heart or put it back together, depending on the day. His latest album, Still Falling, has been called brilliant, beautiful and genre-defying as Shaw takes the listener on a journey “from sparse and stunning to richly rendered and devastating.”- Magnet "It makes no difference where Virgil Shaw may lay his head at night, his music does the traveling for him. Still Falling [mixes] Dixieland piano and horns with tunes that sound like they might be tumbling out of a saloon with horses hitched out front... Strangely timeless, Still Falling is a return to a history most of us never knew." — CMJ
Though he got his start as a bandleader in the New York underground movement of the 70s and later recorded an album for Polydor Records, it is with his newest record “East of Bristol, West of Knoxville” on the new indie label Strong Recordings that Jordan Chassan really comes in to his own with a stripped down yet unique and compelling style. "Possibly the best under-the-radar album of the year." -Guitar World Acoustic
