Check out the latest video from songwriter Chris Smither, "Link of Chain", which features Rusty Belle providing some lovely backup vocals.

Folk singer/songwriter Chris Smither is up to his bluesy ways again with his latest music video, “Link of Chain”, taken from his recently released, two-disc retrospective album, Still on the Levee. The song features Rusty Belle on backup vocals, adding another dimension of smooth to Smither’s legendary blues chops.
  
Smither says to PopMatters of the video, “Rusty Belle! I had these guys come down to New Orleans to play on a couple of tunes. The fit was so good we thought we would try a few more for the camera. This is only our third time through this song.”




Still on the Levee is out now through Mighty Albert/Signature Sounds.
