Back up Session with Vicki Randle

I had the great opportunity to work with Vicki Randle last night at Fantasy Studio in Berkeley.

She was performing the back up vocals for my next release Igniting the Flame due out this October.

She currently is a back up singer for Mavis Staples. I asked her if she would be okay with taking some footage

while she performed and she said sure. While taking the pictures I checked with her to make sure it

wouldn’t be to distracting, she said ” heck no, I was on TV for 18 years”. I said oh ya what show?

She said the Tonight Show. I thought whoa!  I remembered you, they would feature you from time to

time. So I looked into her more and found this video of her performing a duet with George Benson on

the last show with Tom Snyder way back. Needless to say, she did an amazing job on back ups.

This was my Twenty Feet from Stardom moment. Although she is a star.

Thanks Vicki!

Ung Tro Review – Down to Memphis

This ones a little honest, but hey, I’m trying to change music. 🙂

although I initially has some trouble for his song so it grows with a few genomlyssningar

 

Translation:

Growing with more listening

A femspårig EP with americana, country and some old rock in up its sleeve is what offered when Scott Smith is making yet another sign of life. Overall, it’s pretty good, feels a little Johnny Cash in his best moments, and although I initially has some trouble for his song so it grows with a few genomlyssningar and I appreciate his wayward and expressive voice. Good lyrics and especially leading Down To Memphis and the gently swinging the Hour Glass is nice songs.

 

Ung Tro Review

This is a fun one!

 

Translation:

Great charm in the best moments

Starts with a great instrumental song before rocking bilå bath country smoker Eclipsing Moon kicks off the whole thing. Payday is nice boogiewoggie (how spells now?) and the stable guitar game that let Mark Knopfler in Determination is as delightful as the lovely piano-driven The World Is Strange. The toughest of them all is Messing With Reality where it played dirty, Scott sings with the greatest charm and it also are treated to a little whistle. Good so.

On the cover of the cd “The Sum of Life”, the debut album by the Americana blues rocker Scott Smith

From San Francisco, is none other than God at the wheel of a Cadillac- Convertible from 1967, something many of us also probably would like to do while we’re on the bvb. ‘ Route 66’ may rapture.

Enough reamed about unrealistic and unattainable and so but quickly back to reality and the 11 songs that Scott Smith for this new album has composed. He mixes on this handsome way music genres such as Americana, blues and country in each other, giving his plate quite varied and soft sounds.

The album title track “The Sum of Life” (see video) is only instrumental song on this cd and is carried by two acoustic guitars played by Scott Smith and Nina Gerber, while Jeff Martin on Acoustic bass guitar and plays the violin of David LaFlamme of the rock band ‘ It’s a Beautiful Day’ from San Francisco to star In this stylish and soothing track.  

Therefore only ten songs that also some more of instrumental support. That ‘ road trip ‘ through the songs starts with the energetic blues rocker “Eclipsing Moon”, followed by “Blues Guitar Slinger”, two tracks in which the sound of Stevie Ray Vaughn and/or Tony Joe White. In between we get also the smooth rocking country “Payday”.

“Bad Dreams” and “The Best Gift” are more traditional-sounding folk songs in which the violin of David LaFlamme pops up again in the foreground. Gailene Elliott brought it together with singer honkytonk number “The World Is Strange” and the ripping guitar rocker “Over It Soon” are the last two notable tracks from “The Sum Of Life”, a remarkable debut album by Scott Smith.
