Shock Ya! Scott Smith Band’s I Will Love You EP Review

Naturally driving emotions to the extreme is one of the most important ways that musicians can capture an audience’s attention. Bay Area Americana-country singer-songwriter, Scott Smith, and his folk-driven Scott Smith Band, are once again rekindling passion within their listeners with their new two-track rock EP, ‘I Will Love You.’

The title single and its B side song, which are set to be released on Friday, are the powerful follow-up to the group’s EP, ‘Igniting the Flame,’ which was released to critical acclaim last year. The band’s latest tunes pay a beautiful homage to the all-important significance that love has on all aspects of life.

The ‘I Will Love You’ EP begins with its stunningly emotional and memorable title single that’s driven by a lively acoustic guitar and banjo. The EP’s first entry is the perfect homage to Smith’s wife, Karen. The song, which feature the dazzling harmony backup vocals of Vickie Randall, features the two singers crooning their declarations of love all day long. With the duo also lovingly expressing that they will always hold each other in their hearts, the single offers hope that there still is genuine devotion in the world.

The EP’s title single then transitions into its B side track, ‘Spinning Around.’ The enthralling pop-rock track also features Randall on backup vocals, and was inspired by the landscape that surrounds Smith’s home in Sebastopol, California. As the singer-songwriter sentimentally embraces his environment, he begins to truly cherish life, especially as he takes a trip down memory lane.

Instinctively driving emotions to the extreme is one of the most powerful ways that musicians can capture an audience’s attention. Smith and his band are once again rekindling passion within their listeners with their ‘I Will Love You’ EP. The title single and its B side tune pay a beautiful homage to the importance that love has on all aspects of life.
