Unashamedly romantic, concerned by travel, love, loss and the occasional murder ballad. John Smith has released five independent albums in 11 years, with over 10 million Spotify plays.

A contemporary singer with a distinct voice, John Smith has toured worldwide with artists including Jackson Browne, Lisa Hannigan, David Gray and Rodney Crowell. Also an interpreter of traditional material, he is a genuine troubadour.
