Chris Smither is an American folk singer/songwriter. He was born in Miami during World War II but moved to New Orleans as a child, which is where he first started playing music. In the 1960s Smither moved again in the pursuit of music, this time to Boston, which is where he forged lifelong bonds with various musicians of the time, including Bonnie Raitt who went on to record his songs Love You Like A Man and I Feel the Same.
Chris Smither has released 16 albums, not including his numerous live recordings and compilations. His most recent recording project is 2014's Still On the Levee which saw him put a new spin on 24 of his songs at the Music Shed in New Orleans.
Smither plays the UK for a one off headline show at Manchester's Band on the Wall in October 2015. Check below for tickets!
