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, "More from the Levee," continues the career-spanning retrospective begun on his "Songs from the Levee" album 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 Kelly Clarkson have covered. His music has been covered by numerous artists and featured in soundtrack albums, independent film, television and commercials, and at The Ark he has a meeting of the minds with audiences that occurs in very few other places.
