Customer Review

on 17 January 2010
I first Heard John Smith when I went to see David gray at the Colston hall in Bristol in December. John was the first artist on stage. Normally it takes me a while to really get into someones sphere of performing, but from the minute he began to play and sing he totally caught my imagination.

There are a lot of artists who bring out an album, you like a few tracks then basically the rest amounts to nothing. Not with this album, you can feel the total dedication to the performance, the haunting at times accoustics mix with a sultry tone of deep southern states America that at times whisks you away to a hearing delight.

Accoustic folk singers are very slim on the ground right now, but to find one with the ability to both sing and play with total ease makes you realise he has dedicated one hell of a lot to reach this peak. I have now listened to the album upteen times and I never tire of hearing something slightly different each time. This is one of those albums you need to just lay back and let it roll over you, the lyrics tell stories, they are nderstandable and the clarity of the performance is first class.

I would totally recommend this album to anyone who has a love of real music, from a performer who can take you away with the ability to make you listen, I seriously believe John Smith is a smash hit waiting to happen. I have seen many world class folk singers in my time and this man will be up there with the best in no time.

Wonderful album, superb performance, could not ask for more.
