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.
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.

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.
This is a fun one!
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.

Singer/songwriter Scott Smith returns with his new album titled “Down To Memphis.” It features five tracks that help solidify Scott’s status as one of country music’s fasting rising stars.http://jpsmusicblog.blogspot.com/2016/12/cd-review-new-music-from-joey-stuckey.html
