Christopher Becker Whitley (August 31, 1960 – November 20, 2005) was an American blues singer-songwriter and guitarist.
Whitley achieved modest mainstream success, but had a devoted following. Whitley's style was rooted primarily in blues, but drew on an array of influences and was constantly changing. In 2001, the New York Times described his arc as "restless, moving into noise-rock and minimalist jazz evoking Chet Baker and Sonic Youth as much as Robert Johnson".
Living with the Law is the debut album by singer-songwriter and guitarist Chris Whitley.
Malcolm Burn produced, mixed, and played on the album. It was co-recorded by Burn and Mark Howard at Kingsway Studio (Daniel Lanois' home) in New Orleans.
Living with the Law was named ninth best album of 1991 in the Pazz & Jop critics poll. It is also listed in Tom Moon's 2008 book 1,000 Recordings to Hear Before You Die.
