JOHN SMITH LIVE ACOUSTIC SESSION

RECORDED IN COLOGNE, GERMANY, APRIL 23, 2017

English folk-guitarist and singer-songwriter John Smith first got our attention some years ago when we filmed a session with the wonderful Lisa Hannigan. We went to her show afterwards and John was playing guitar in Lisa’s band – and did an amazing job. His backing voice was always so subtle, but rich and unique. Two years later, the same thing happened again – but John was this time playing in the band of David Gray, who we met for a session.

So, long story short, it was only a matter of time to meet John playing his own songs. We picked him up at his hotel, searched for a nice, quiet spot (that was later interrupted by a pretty loud saw of some construction workers in the background) and filmed two songs from his new record.

His guitar-playing really is special, his honesty in singing feels very close. Very happy to share those two songs, called “Headlong” and “Far Too Good”.
