CHRIS SMITHER. Songwriter. Guitarist. Performer. Bluesman. 

He will be accompanied by his producer, Goody Goodrich on guitar and strings and Billy Conway on percussion.

CALL ME LUCKY is the new record from Chris Smither and is his first set of brand new originals in six years (release date: March 2018 on Signature Sounds/Mighty Albert). Recorded at the gorgeous Blue Rock Studio in the Texas foothills CALL ME LUCKY features longtime producer and multi-instrumentalist David Goodrich, drummer Billy Conway (Morphine), Matt Lorenz (aka The Suitcase Junket), Mike Meadows, and engineer Keith Gary. The new record features Smither - trademark songs that offer commentary on the human condition with a wink of an eye and pulls from deep in the soul. To complete the project are a couple of surprise covers that remind us of Chris' deftness as a song interpreter as he makes the songs his own. 

Honing a synthesis of folk and blues for 50 years, Smither is truly an American original. Reviewers and fans from around the world, including Rolling Stone and The New York Times, agree that Chris continues to be a profound songwriter, a blistering guitarist, and intense performer as he draws deeply from the blues, American folk music, modern poets and humanist philosophers. 

CALL ME LUCKY does just that. Check it out. Check out Chris Smither.

Opener: The Suitcase Junket

Channeling his inner Tuvan, Lorenz’s singing voice comes from somewhere at the fringe of guttural and hummingbird nectar-sweet.  There’s a tinge of Waits and a hint of Dylan, in both vocal styling and social consciousness -- the way his songs are crafted and honed, not strewn about.  Make Time truly travels to various destinations of musical fortitude and emotion[...]It's one hell of a ride that holds its resonance well after the record has stopped spinning. - No Depression.
