A highly motivated Smith beams, "I want to make music that stays with you for ever ." Smith is committed to being the total package both on stage and in the studio. By writing and arranging his own vocals and producing the majority of his beats, his music is a heartfelt reflection of his life and influences. By defying expectations and crossing multiple genres, Smith uses all of his influences to create a unique and unmistakable sound.
