Lyrics from Darlin' You're SweetWise Blood, aka Chris Laufman, takes his stage name from the title of the 1952 Flannery O’Connor novel. Originally from Pittsburgh, Wise Blood composes his own pieces which meld soul, pop, hip hop and other elements amongst ethereal synth beats and cleverly used samples. Constantly touring, Wise Blood has earned a reputation for giving energetic and spectacular live performances. When performing live, Laufman employs the use of a live drummer and mixer as his accompaniment as he belts out his lyrics. His first EP ‘+’ was released in 2010 on his website for free, followed by his second EP These Wings in 2011. His first full length album is slated to be released in the spring of 2012 on Dovecote Records, preceded by a mixtape.
