Chris Smither on Woodsongs
Posted on: Monday, Dec 7, 2009
CHRIS SMITHER’s unique brand of blues-infused folk has, over the years, proven him to be what The Boston Herald aptly deemed “a one-man band of blues-inspired power that can justly be called locomotive.” After hearing Lightnin’ Hopkins album Blues in the Bottle in 1960, Chris was inspired and began performing. His career has stretched four decades and 13 albums. He has a long standing relationship with Bonnie Raitt that took shape in 1972 when Bonnie recorded Chris’s “Love Me Like a Man” and “I Feel The Same” in 1973. His latest is Time Stands Still and is his first CD released on his own label Mighty Albert. It’s a masterful work that stands as the quintessence of his life’s work while throwing in some new wrinkles that reflect where he’s been and what he’s encountered since the last time around.
