I actually heard about Christopher Smith after stumbling upon the video for "Gently Gently" on the Salazar Film website. The best way I could describe his debut album "The Beckon Call" is lonesome folk. Smith makes warm, yet distant, melodies which are complemented by his delicate voice. Maybe that's to be expected from someone who hails from Vancouver. All in all it makes for a wonderful sound. Download "Gently, Gently" below and watch the video below. It's not exactly season appropriate, but quite interesting nonetheless. You can also stream his entire album at his Bandcamp site.
