Cort Armstrong - Chicken Pickin'

My Heart Is Fixed cover

Fresh off the presses, Cort's new CD, Chicken Pickin', hasn't even made it into stores yet. That will change in January, 2010. This project is composed of 12 original songs, performed solo, with just a little sweet harmony vocals added by Cort's good friend and recording engineer Tyler Richart. Recorded in Dungeness Valley, WA, at Nash's Corner, over the course of 2009, the CD shows an American roots musician who has found his voice. It is powerful, and it is sweet. Check it out...
