Chris Rosser's second recording, 'The Holy Fool', further combines pop, world and folk influences in songs of homecoming queens, ashrams, relationships, spirituality, Federico Fellini and small town churches. Guest appearances by Beth Wood, Tom Prasada-Rao, David LaMotte and more. Hailing from the mountains of Asheville, NC, Chris Rosser is the winner of the 2000 Rocky Mountain Folks Festival songwriter contest and has showcased at the Kerrville Folk Fest and the Falcon Ridge Folk Fest. In addition to playing guitar (in some very strange tunings!), he plays jazz piano and has studied Hindustani classical music with world-renowned Indian musician, Ali Akbar Khan. He is perhaps best known as a songwriter however - Dirty Linen described his songs as 'lovely homages to the experience of being alive and human.' 'Chris Rosser's The Holy Fool is a wonderful recording. It is eclectic and spiritual. The Holy Fool should propel Rosser to the top of the list of folk singer-songwriters.' Tony Sica WTMD, Baltimore, MD 'Chris' songs are good medicine. Kind and heartfelt and beautifully written.' David Wilcox.
