Carolinabound is led by Chris Smith, a singer-songwriter based in the mountains of Western North Carolina. At the age of 14, he began writing songs and picked up his first guitar shortly thereafter. By 18 he was playing local venues in and around his hometown of Johnson City, Tenn. He moved to Asheville in 2003 to pursue music further, and is still going strong, performing over 100 shows a year both as a solo artist, and under the moniker Carolinabound, where he’s joined by Jeremy Blake on bass and Garry Segal on lap steel.
