ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Andrew Smith is an accomplished instrumentalist and singer/songwriter who has been busy playing folk clubs, festivals and house concerts - both as a solo performer and with the popular folk/roots trio Smith Funk & Strauss. In 2004 he opened for some of his musical heroes such as Bruce Cockburn, Ruthie Foster, Gordie Sampson, Martyn Joseph, Pierce Pettis and David Wilcox.

As a solo performer Andrew plays original instrumental pieces as well as songs about his travels and loves (along with the occasional political rant). His first instrumental album, in the style of Don Ross and Michael Hedges, was released April '05.

In 2004, Andrew was nominated for instrumentalist of the year at the Scorpion Entertainment Awards and toured France and Switzerland as an instrumentalist performer.

Solo guitar work had everyone in awe
JP Squire, Kelowna Daily Courier
" Solo guitar work by Smith had everyone in awe as he combined percussive slaps with an unusual picking style"

Andrew Smith is more than an entertainer
Dean Clark, Artistic Director, Cochrane Folk Club
"Andrew Smith is more than an entertainer...through his well-crafted, thought-provoking lyrics and melodies, he invites you on a journey of the heart".

Escape Velocity
Have loveed his style since first seeing him with 'Smith Funk and Strauss'. His palying is astounding and immidiately reminded me of Michael Hedges and Don Ross, both favorites of mine. If I were to compare, this album is as good and better than both in a lot of ways. The backup musicians are all top notch as well.

WOW ... I was awed by the clear, precise, and originailty of the fingerstyling.
It is very unusual to buy a CD where all the tracks are just great but this CD tops them all. Something I can listen to over and over again and not get tired off it. You can just get lost in it.
