Making much progress on my new album, “Small Town USA” It should be out in a few month.
There’s more to this band than just Smith. He is the singer/songwriter genius behind the music and lyrics, but he has an excellent band giving his music that full sound. Some of the amazing talent that he works with include classical and rock violinist David LaFlamme, backup singer Vickie Randall, keyboardist Spencer Burrough, saxophonist Paul Branin, and trombonist and horn arranger Mike Rinta.

Californian singer/songwriter Scott Smith is proving that good old fashioned Americana is alive and well in 2018 with his new single “I Will Love You,” an epic sampling from his forthcoming extended play Igniting The Flame. Keeping in stride with his previous output, Smith doesn’t try to weigh down this new track with unnecessary frills or bravado; instead he lets us soak up all of the freewheeling, spacious folksiness that makes his signature sound so inviting and unique. I had the fortune of being able to check out “I Will Love You” ahead of its June 15th release date, and I found it to be one of the more poignant entries in Smith’s catalogue, particularly in how it demonstrates his tremendous growth as an artist.

With an easy going strum of a set of barley-blowing, golden strings, Scott Smith eases us into his new acoustic love song “I Will Love You,” a carefree slice of heaven hot off of his new summer release Igniting the Flame. Dedicated to his wife, Smith joyously illustrates a heart-warming picture of his affections and devotion to the woman he’s spending his life with, and along the way gives us some incredible melodies to swing to. Anyone who’s ever truly been in love can relate to the playful, rollicking nature of “I Will Love You,” the beat not dissimilar from the sweet pitter patter that all of us feel when we meet someone special to our hearts.

BAY AREA AMERICANA COUNTRY ROCKER SCOTT SMITH FOLLOWS HIS BLISTERING, CRITICALLY ACCLAIMED EP ‘IGNITING THE FLAME’ WITH TWO FRESH TRACKS THAT SHOWCASE A MORE ROMANTIC AND POETIC SIDE OF HIS ARTISTRY.
Simple vocal melodies combined with engaging and intricate instrumentals, with a tinge of blues, make the perfect recipe for music you will love to remember and discover.
This ones a little honest, but hey, I’m trying to change music. 🙂
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.
Emotion comes from the thoughtful and sometimes poignant lyrics that tell story after story.
