No stranger to the scene, Mr. Smith has secretly written for years alongside some of the industry’s most noted creatives. From Toni to Tamar [Braxton] to Kandi [Burruss] & TLC’s T-Boz!
Mr. Smith’s road to solo artistry has been paved with years of admirably boastful work as a songwriter, background vocalist and vocal producer.
While a student at Morehouse College, Mr. Smith began his career in Atlanta with initial guidance from Dallas Austin. Throw in a Law Degree (yes, he’s also a lawyer) and you have a uniquely experienced, multi-faceted artist finally ready to step forward.
His debut single, cautiously titled “Warning Label” was an immediate pop smash that easily aligned itself with Adele’s “Hello”. Warning Label’s melodic choices, overall tonality and lyrical content are undeniable and, sonically infectious!
Mr. Smith’s ultra-clear tone sits royally atop the track, as a funky electric guitar unapologetically invites us into the record’s vulnerability and brazen honesty. “It would be easier if everybody came, with a warning label,” the chorus confesses. Lyrics and music that transport you mentally, that make you think, that make you feel.
Given the overwhelming response to the debut release, fans asked and Mr. Smith answered, delivering a NEW acoustic and visual of “Warning Label.” Mr. Smith spent weeks at #6 on the ReverbNation Pop Charts, and is currently in rotation in 17 countries.
This ladies and gentlemen is the Mr. Smith effect and he’s only just begun, so please stay tuned, you’ve officially been warned.
