Christopher Smith: Bio Info

Christopher Smith is one of the best "under the radar" songwriters in the country. His acoustic based music is grounded in folk roots with american and celtic influences. His musicianship always serves the song, and his voice is sweet and engaging. What sets Smith apart is the sheer strength of his material. He holds a listener's attention for song after song because he writes stories that spring from interesting ideas. There is no filler in a Christopher Smith show.

Christopher has been playing music in the San Francisco Bay area for over 25 years, where he lives with his wife and two sons. He credits his day job (the world’s greatest kindergarten teacher) for helping to maintain his playful, creative energy. Besides writing great songs, he also makes killer playdough.

Smith can put his songs across in a variety of venues, from intimate house concerts and listening rooms to large outdoor festival stages. He knows how to connect with his audience.

He has won the performing songwriter competition at the Sisters Folk Festival in Oregon, and his song "Gravedigger's Boy" won Best Song at West Virgina's NewSong Festival.
