Listing Detail Tabs

June 19, 2012 marks the release of Hundred Dollar Valentine (Signature
Sounds) - and this, Chris' 12th studio record, is a masterwork. It sports
the unmistakable sound he has made his trademark: fingerpicked acoustic guitar
and evocative sonic textures meshed with spare, brilliant songs, delivered in a
bone-wise, hard-won voice. It is also his first recording to feature all
Smither-penned, original songs. Along with longtime producer, David “Goody”
Goodrich, other featured musicians on Hundred Dollar Valentine are drummer Billy
Conway (Morphine, Treat Her Right), Jimmy Fitting on harmonica, and
Goodrich's ex-Groovasaur­us bandmates, Anita Suhanin (vocals) and violinist
Ian Kennedy (Page/Plant, Lemonheads, Juliana Hatfield, Peter Wolf, Susan
Tedeschi). Having distilled his own signature sound of blues and folk for over
40 years, Chris Smither is truly an American original. A profound songwriter,
Chris continues to draw deeply from the blues, American folk music, modern poets
and philosophers with this 14th record of his lengthy career. From his early
days as the New Orleans transplant in the Boston folk scene, through his
wilderness years, to his reemergence in the 1990s as one of America's most
distinctive acoustic performers, Chris Smither continues to hone his distinctive
sound. He has always traveled his own road, eschewing sophisticated studio
tricks and staying true to his musical vision. He has developed and maintained
loyal friendships over the years with kindred-spirited musicians like Bonnie
Raitt and the late Stephen Bruton while at the same time throughout his career
