Chris Smither | Time Stands Still
October 27, 2009
From Wikipedia and his website:
Chris Smither is an American folk/blues singer, guitarist, and songwriter. His music draws deeply from the blues, American folk music, modern poets and philosophers.
Recorded in only three days, ‘Time Stands Still’ is just the eleventh studio album of a career that now spans over four decades. ‘Time Stands Still’ (Signature Sounds/Mighty Albert) is both pensive and visceral – an album whose songs alternately ponder life’s mysteries in some moments, and let them lie undisturbed in others. Featuring eight new original compositions and a song apiece from Bob Dylan, Mark Knopfler, and 1920s country-blues songster Frank Hutchison, ‘Time Stands Still’s’ immediate, intimate sound is the direct result of one gig, and the challenge it presented.
