David G Smith
Internationally acclaimed songwriter-troubadour David G Smith (davidgsmithmusic.com) is an acoustic solo performer with a lyric intensive style featuring guitars, a resonator, music and a voice that range from dirt-funk to intimate. Think James Taylor meets Townes Van Zandt. His music is a blend of Folk, Americana, Country & Blues. He is a 2008 International Song Competition 1st Place Winner and two-time ISC semifinalist. He performs regularly at the prestigious Bluebird Cafe/Nashville. David has released 10 albums and Mary Gauthier and Keb Mo make appearances on 4 of them to include a duet with Mary on his latest called “Shine”. He has had two nationwide #1 singles on the RMR chart. David’s songs have been featured on TNT, Lifetime Network, Travel Channel and he has a string of indie & major-indie song-cuts. His last 3 albums have been accepted for Grammy consideration. He contributes time, music and/or money to a variety of causes (see Give-Back on his homepage for more detail). David, his voice and his songs are authentic. “Like Mary Gauthier and Sam Baker, Smith cuts through...to find essential phrases and words to represent the ache of living”. (Fervor Coulee).
