Since 2004, The Daredevil Christopher Wright has been one of Eau Claire's musical success stories, releasing a string of records that got them well-deserved national attention. The brothers of Jon and Jason Sunde and their friend Jesse Edgington have worked with a slew of resources over the years: Justin Vernon, Amble Down Records and Daytrotter are just a few of the recognizable names to lend this band support in their artistic ambitions.

Their new album The Nature Of Things scales back the amount of guest musicians in an effort to reflect simplicity. But the release is undeniably complex with difficult harmonies and instrumental techniques.

They stopped by The Local Show as part of our all-Eau Claire episode to chat about the Chippewa Valley, touring and what's on the horizon.

Songs performed: "Divorce," "San Francisco Bay" and "We Fold Inside Of Us"
