Wired magazine says Smither's music is a "masterful combination of pure folk songwriting and intricate guitar blues."

Chris Smither put out his first album, I'm a Stranger Too!, in 1970.

He has been playing and writing music all the while in between: Smither's upcoming release will be his 12th record.

Leave the Light On is the first album Smither has released on his own Mighty Albert label.

Along with his own songs, Smither covers Mississippi John Hurt's "Blues in the Bottle" and Bob Dylan's "Visions of Johanna."

This fall and through 2007, Chris Smither plays concert dates across the United States and Canada.
