With a dozen albums under his belt, Chris Smither qualifies as a veteran of the music industry. His elegant lyrics are packed with little punches that land on your heart, with just his own masterful finger-picking and amplified foot-tapping to accompany him.

His well-developed story lines and diverse themes qualify as modern folk, but the blues influences are undeniable in his melody and rhythm. His recent albums have included everything from rock 'n' roll classics to heart-wrenching ballads to philosophical musings.

Smither's songs have been covered by the likes of Emmylou Harris, Bonnie Raitt and Diana Krall. "Smither taps his foot to keep the rhythm, much like the late blues legend John Lee Hooker. His finger-picked guitar lines are sleek, unhurried and insistent. And then there's the voice equal parts gravel and molasses, Smither's singing sounds like a distillation of the folk and blues heroes he grew up listening to in New Orleans." - NPR
