CHARLOTTE, NC —
A songwriter, guitarist, bluesman, interpreter, and performer for more than 50 years, CHRIS SMITHER has proven himself an American original. His new album Call Me Lucky (just out March 2nd on Signature Sounds),
is the artist’s first studio recording of brand new originals in six years. At the core of Call Me Lucky
are the ten songs, which offer commentary on the human condition that only Chris Smither can put pen to.
Smither shook things up. During the making of the record, each musician at some point wore a different hat. The engineer played the piano. The drummer played guitar. Chris took a
standard and turned it on its head and it came out in a minor key. They added in another surprise cover (you’ll just have to listen to find out what it is). And to top it off, yes, Chris went electric.
As most Smither aficionados know, he recognizes great songs by other writers and always includes a couple of songs by other musicians. His rendering of “Maybellene” is menacing.
Fans from around the world continue to fill concert venue after concert venue eager for the galvanizing ride of a Chris Smither concert as he draws deeply from folk and blues, modern poets and philosophers.
