Jonah Smith: The Sun Dip Behind A Mushroom Cloud

One thing that I've enjoyed about writing this blog is researching the artists and their stories.  It really makes you believe that anything is possible if you work hard enough.  From bands busking in subway stations, to bands touring on bicycles, there seems to be an amazing story for every band that "makes it."

Jonah Smith independently released his first album in 2000.  Smith worked hard to build an audience for his music.  However, in 2004 he won a songwriting contest held by Relix Magazine, with his song "Tell It To The Mountain."  That entry led to a record deal with Relix, which helped Jonah Smith reach new fans.  In 2010, Jonah Smith released his latest album Lights On.  Smith's soulful voice blends well with his music which contains elements of all kinds of genres from jazz to country.

Here's Jonah Smith performing "World Without Love" off Lights On.
