The "Still on the Levee" release show tour

Honing a synthesis of folk and blues for 50 years, Chris Smither is truly an American original. After a series of timeless records dating back to the early 1970s, Chris' newest release, "Still On the Levee," is a career-spanning retrospective double CD featuring new interpretations of songs from across the artist's amazing career. Recorded in New Orleans with studio-mates he calls The Motivators, Still On the Levee plays host to special guests including Allen Toussaint and Loudon Wainwright III. The record highlights the vast catalog of an American music master. Reviewers and fans from around the world agree that Chris is a profound songwriter, a blistering guitarist and, as he puts it, a "one-man band to the bone." Chris melds the styles of his two major influences, Lightnin' Hopkins and Mississippi John Hurt, into his own signature guitar sound. His music continues to draw deeply from the blues, American folk music, modern poets, and humanist philosophers. Chris may be best known for writing "Love You Like A Man," which Bonnie Raitt and more recently jazz great Diana Krall have covered. His music has been covered by numerous artists and featured in soundtrack albums, independent film, television and commercials.
