Grant Maloy Smith
Grant Maloy Smith is an American Roots Singer/Songwriter with a country bent. His songs tell heartfelt stories about real people, and are unfailingly optimistic and forward looking. His 2013 album YELLOW TRAILER earned rave reviews, including this one from the Aquarian “...Smith’s lyrical work is just as impressive from track to track, staying true to folk style storytelling in music while keeping it sounding fresh and enjoyable.” Grant is a member of the Recording Academy (the Grammys®), and is a BMI Recording artist. His upcoming album DUST BOWL is being released nationally and internationally in Summer 2016.
In his next album, Dust Bowl, Grant picks up where Yellow Trailer left off, and carries on down that same road, but with new twists and turns. According to the songwriter, "You can't keep writing the same record over and over again; you have to reach beyond where you think you can go, and challenge yourself. So that's what I am doing. The next album uses the great environmental and economic disaster of the mid 1930s as its context. It's not a documentary, but the songs are set against that as the backdrop. That place and time is very special to me. The people are real, and what they went through was incredible."
