With five album releases in 11 years, most recently 2017’s Headlong, Essex-born John Smith’s reputation as an outstanding guitarist, singer and songwriter now extends far beyond the UK folk scene, as reflected by sideman credits including David Gray, Lisa Hannigan, Lianne La Havas, Joe Henry and Joan Baez.
Mentored by the late John Renbourn – to whom Headlong is dedicated - and compared as a singer to John Martyn and Ray Lamontagne, Smith has evolved his own transatlantic blend of fingerstyle and slide techniques, switching between acoustic and electric guitars in various tunings.
He’s joined here by a distinguished cast of hand-picked guests.
