Chris Smither
A profound songwriter, Chris Smither draws deeply from the blues, American folk music, modern poets, and philosophers. Reviewers continue to praise his dazzling guitar work, gravelly voice and songwriting. Smither is an American original  a product of the musical melting pot and one of the absolute best singer-songwriters in the world.Associated Press.

Born in Miami, during World War II, Chris Smither grew up in New Orleans where he first started playing music as a child. The son of a Tulane University professor, he was taught the rudiments of instrumentation by his uncle on his mothers ukulele. Uncle Howard, Smither says, showed me that if you knew three chords, you could play a lot of the songs you heard on the radio. And if you knew four chords, you could pretty much rule the world. With that bit of knowledge under his belt, he was hooked. Id loved acoustic music  specifically the blues  ever since I first heard Lightnin Hopkins Blues In My Bottle album. I couldnt believe the sound Hopkins got. At first I thought it was two guys playing guitar. My style, to a degree, came out of trying to imitate that sound I heard.
