Smith Allen is a Los Angeles based singer/songwriter by way of Dayton, Ohio. His eponymous debut LP (available May 10th) is a refreshing step back in time, with lyrics enveloping the depths of city life with a healthy dose of Midwest twang. The album was recorded at Palomino Sound by Jason Soda and features some of LA's finest musicians.
"Smith Allen’s [debut album] captures a landscape of country-esque songs that stab at the highs and lows of being an artist in a big city. From the dullness of a dark bar to the zing of a coastal road trip, it’s what Cali Country is all about." - Americana UK
Smith moved to California 7 years ago, desperate for a less predictable future and ready to break the norm and expectations of his hometown. He fell for the Golden State and all it has to offer while patiently shedding his youth and discovering his sound.
