CHRIS SMITHER. Songwriter. Guitarist. Performer. Bluesman.

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.
Laurie Sargent
Laurie Sargent
Laurie Sargent, veteran of the Boston music scene with records made for giant labels (Treat Her Right and Face to Face – garnering a Top 40 single), indie labels (Twinemen, Orchestra Morphine – both critically acclaimed), and extreme DIY offerings (her own and two discs with performance artists The Chip Smith Project) is back with a new CD of completely original music.

Laurie has had one foot in the music business and one foot in the organic farming business since moving to Montana full time several years ago. She’s managed to keep her performing chops up with recent tours with longtime friend Johnette Napolitano(Concrete Blonde), who invited her to open two tours in recent years. She is also touring with Jeffrey Foucault and Chris Smither to support her new project, “Smiley Face.”

Laurie will be in New England to tour and promote the new CD. The former Best Local Female Performer in the Boston Music Awards recorded the project in the studio with old friends and former bandmates.
