Carolinabound is led by Chris Smith, a singer-songwriter based in the mountains of Western North Carolina. Chris performs more than 100 shows a year both as a solo artist, and under the moniker Carolinabound, where he’s joined by bassist Jeremy Blake.
Carolinabound began recording their first EP, Smoking Gun, in November of 2014. The album is a collection of songs based on love, loss, and life experience seen through the eyes of a man that claims his number one influence is the Blue Ridge Mountains. The EP features the quartet of Chris Smith on guitar and vocals, Jeremy Blake on bass, Leo Grassl of Motel Rodeo on pedal steel, and Halli Anderson of River Whyless on violin.
Smoking Gun, produced by Seven Moths Records founder Michael O’Shea, is set to be released on March 10, 2015. Below, listen to the track “Chaos,” premiering today at VerbicideMagazine.com.
