Biography

Joshua Luke Smith describes himself as being 'not a rapper, but a poet'. Emerging as a new voice in the hip hop world, the 22 year old's EP Between The Saddle & The Ground secured a top ten position in the international iTunes hip hop/rap charts only hours after being released. As a craftsman lyricist and a captivating song writer, it is no wonder that his independently produced music recorded in
the living room of his rented home has been well received.

The EP has been called 'passionate, powerful and purposeful'. It seems to be Smith's desire to write music that does not simply provide his audience with a good tune or playful lyrics but that has words that speak to the heart and a passion that draws out dreams, restores hope and releases destiny!

Having made an impact with his spoken word piece "The Girl in Chains" (a powerful visual performance poem highlighting the horrors within the world of human trafficking) Joshua Luke Smith is gaining momentum in becoming an important voice at a very young age.

Partnered with his wife and fellow songwriter, Kara Ann Marie, Joshua Luke Smith established Orphan No More earlier this year as an independent record label providing the platform to release his own music and that of others in the near future!

With plans of touring and new releases in the coming months, Joshua Luke Smith is an artist not be overlooked.
