Dying well before his time, Chris Whitley was a singer-songwriter and guitarist primarily in the blues and roots tradition.  Musicians as diverse as Iggy Pop, Cassandra Wilson, and Bruce Springsteen deeply appreciated his contribution to music.  The New York Times once described his act as "restless, moving into noise-rock and minimalist jazz evoking Chet Baker and Sonic Youth as much as Robert Johnson." Chet Baker, Robert Johnson, Im A Loser, Iggy Pop, Independent Music, The Dj, Bruce Springsteen, Music Awards, Good Music
