CD: Zen Country



Smokey Witt is a non-ironic non-edgy non-retro country music singer/songwriter who has not changed his style since the 1950's. His influences are Emmett Miller, Jimmie Rodgers, Bob Wills, Hank Williams and the 10th century Zen master Ching Y'uan. Although he has flirted with electric guitars and other honky-tonk paraphanelia on occasion, his band currently uses only acoustic instruments, and he likes to think that the music would not have been out of place at a Saturday night barn dance in the 1930's. However, he has also written songs about the dot-com crash of 2001, and another of his crypto-hits is entitled "Fax Me Your Heart", so Smokey is not adverse to using up-to-date themes in his music, as long as they are well-seasoned, and as long as, in his view, Jimmie Rodgers or Hank Williams would have liked the songs. As a concession to modern tastes, he does use a microphone rather than a megaphone when performing in public.
