Letters In The Dirt


Today, he should be recognized as one of the best and most important new songwriters to come along in the past few years.

— Sing Out!

Letters in the Dirt is Chuck's debut on Red House Records. Recorded in Atlanta, it was produced by Billy Pilgrim's Kristian Bush and features members of Billy Pilgrim as well as guest appearances by David Wilcox and Tom Paxton. Musically, the album is filled with fresh hooks, melodies that linger in your head, and exceptional musicianship. Again, Chuck's stories take center stage. From "The Ballad of Eddie Klepp" to "The Hands of Victor Jara"--whether the songs make you laugh or move you deeply--this album will cement Chuck's reputation as one of the great songwriters in folk music.
