Honing a synthesis of folk and blues for 50 years, Chris Smither is truly an American original
Recorded at the gorgeous Blue Rock Studio in Texas, Chris' latest studio record of brand new originals in six years (release date: March 2018 on Signature Sounds/Mighty Albert) features producer and multi-instrumentalist David Goodrich, drummer Billy Conway (Morphine), Matt Lorenz (aka The Suitcase Junket), and engineer Keith Gary. Touring in 2018 to support the record, Chris will showcase these fresh new songs that offer commentary on the human condition with a wink of an eye and pulls from deep in the soul, all in his signature Smither style. To complete the project are a couple of surprise covers that remind us of Chris' deftness as a song interpreter as he makes the songs his own.
Reviewers and fans from around the world including Rolling Stone and The New York Times agree that Chris continues to be a profound songwriter, a blistering guitarist, and intense performer as he draws deeply from the blues, American folk music, modern poets, and humanist philosophers.
