Nora Brown - "Wild Goose Chase"

It's not every artist that could pull off an instrumental, banjo only song for their latest single, but most artists aren't Nora Brown. The seventeen year old banjo prodigy has released a version of "Wild Goose Chase" that is just her on banjo, and the result is stunning. Just Brown's playing is completely captivating. Somehow with just banjo the song is heartbreaking and haunting, completely sucking in the listener the way most artists fail to with a full band and vocals. It feels kind of corny to say, but "Wild Goose Chase" is a story told through just a single instrument. Nora Brown is set to have a long career, and we can't wait to see where she goes from here.

In a Facebook post, Nora Brown says of her new single:

"Classic #virgilanderson track. A pretty regional tune. In the liner notes of his record, Virgil said he first heard this one as a teenager while at a logging camp. This one sometimes goes by Lost Gander."

You can listen to "Wild Goose Chase" below. Long Time to Be Gone is due out August 26 via Jalopy Records, and can be pre-ordered here. For more on Nora Brown, check out the artist's website.
