Telling the truth

Veteran songwriter Chris Smither jumped into a spot vacated by the apparently disbanded Pinmonkey and showcased his new CD, Leave the Light On.

Songs included "Origin of the Species" and "Diplomacy," comic takes on those subjects.

But his real strength is in his truth telling.

He said he used to do write a lot of blues whining songs, but that now he writes "more sophisticated kind of whining" songs, because "I hate to think that I hadn't learned anything in 40 years."
