ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
RJ Smith is a noted up and coming Texas fiddler who's recent solo album "Living My Dream" is receiving great acclaim in the traditional country and Western Swing circles. Produced by her mentor and Grammy Award winner Bobby Flores, it features 12 tunes that are mix of breakdowns, western swing and Ray Price tunes, all done in a manner that showcases RJ's commitment to and love for this traditional music. A long standing member of Bobby Flores' three fiddle Yellow Rose Band, she performs regularly in Texas dance halls, and in theaters and festivals across the country and overseas. No less an authority than Johnny Bush had this to say, "RJ, having been classically trained, is equally at home in a symphonic concert hall, as well as holding her own side by side with virtuosos like Bobby Flores and Hank Singer in a Texas dance hall. RJ's CD, "Living My Dream" contains a variety of traditional hoedowns, Bob Wills and Tommy Jackson style tunes. Her treatment of these old tunes are representative of her love of this music. I am proud to say I'm her fan."

Bobby Flores, her mentor and teacher said this,
"It's been a real pleasure watching R.J. work hard and achieve her success in both the fiddling and studio engineering fields. I don't think I've ever seen anyone more dedicated to excelling at what they do. I'm so proud not only to be working with her in my band, but also to have her engineering in my studio and teaching fiddle at BAM. Her work and practice standards are higher than I've ever seen in anyone and it shows.

It's a rush and a musical blast to play three part fiddles with her and Hank Singer, and I look forward to every show we get to play together! Her new CD "Living My Dream" is just the start of a wonderful career for a talented and well deserving new young artist. It was a pleasure and an honor to be a part of it. Keep an eye on this dedicated and talented young gal as she continues to advance in stellar fashion on stage, in the studio and at everything else she takes on."
