Bio

A.T. Smith is a dynamic emerging singer/songwriter from the rural outskirts of the Detroit Metropolitan area. A.T. is quickly becoming known as an intriguing performer -with unique appeal as an accomplished and intricate guitarist- with a forceful crooning tenor vocal that truely takes the listener back in time. Saturated with the soulful tensions and techniques of Appalachian Traditionals, Bluegrass/Flapicking, and Old Time Fingerpicking Blues; A.T.'s performances perpetuate a musical journey through genres and modes less or seldom traveled by other folk and blues artists.

Listeners are presented with gustsy originals and A.T.'s own unique arrangments of traditionals peppered with colorful and often obscure picking techniqes that set him in own class even among artists in similar genres. All of his music carries a genuine old timey feel fostered by rural upbringing, and deep family roots in traditional music affording an authentic delivery of these pieces that tugs at the heart and soul.

The vocal delivery of his peices is no exception offering haunting authenticity as his only vocal "style" strived for is complete honesty. A.T. strives to present something different and new to his listeners by bringing old peices out of the obscurtity and composing insistantly unique originals that inevitably reflect his love of the old time music of the rural south.

All of his work new and old-reborn transend all social boundaries and time, speaking strait to the soul of humanity; inately labored with "weary blues and blessed hope". These timeless songs satisfy the human hearts longing for open dscussion and reflection of pain, love, home, toil, tears, labors, sins, repentence, change, travel, rebirth, peril, loss, kinship, dreams, redemption, happiness, sweet sorrow, and the uncanny relationship and interconnectedness between the joys and pains of life.

A.T. meets his listners on a personal level opening a communion of human experience and love of music spanning lifetimes far beyond his own, always presenting his performances with clear evidence of both raw God given talent, and a pusuit of mastery and excellence in performance.
