Chris Whitley

Joe Matera, Mixdown, 2003

HOTEL VAST HORIZON is the latest offering from US-based singer-songwriter Chris Whitley – who's been likened to Bob Dylan – that sees him returning to his trademark acoustic sound amid his most intimate and bare-bones musical setting to date. "The last record I did was in New York with computers and a lot of great musician friends" explains Whitley down the line from his current home of Germany where he has been living on and off over the past three years.
