And now another album with a front like that. That is where similarities end. Smith may sing about faith, it's in a personal relationship and the Lord does pass by once.
John Smith originally is from Devon in the U.K. With Headlong he released his fifth album, all self-released. "I don't think any label would work as hard at the job as I do", sounds like the true DIY mentality. Next to playing his own music, Smith plays as a touring guitarist for e.g. Lianne La Havas, David Gray and Lisa Hannigan. And so the impression of a hard-working musician emerges from the info I found on John Smith.
And as soon as I discovered this treasure, Headlong opened itself to me. The delicate acoustic guitar playing, the space in between it all, the arrangements. Above all John Smith's voice that rides the music like a surfer the highest waves, majestic and superior.
