Biography

Ok..I hope this sounds right. I don't even know where to start
without making this into a book. So it's me, Orlando Smith, 23
year old singer songwriter sitting out here in the middle of Hagerstown, Maryland. I know you probably never heard of that...But..onto the Bio.This is me, Orlando, and i love food, movies, money, fashion, music, space, and other things too like video games, technology, other places other than Hagerstown, Md, my dog Kissie, as well as other things. But this is my music bio so I will try to keep it just as that. Can I tell you something though? A bio is harder to type than I thought. I want it to sound like me but bio-ish as well. Anyways, onto the music. It all started one day...I don't know exactly the date, but it started. Timbaland one of those hot beats was playing I don't know if it was a Kiley Dean, or a Bubba Sparxx, or some Aaliyah, Missy, I have no clue but you did it. Aspiring 15 year old producer I had the Hottest fruity loop beats you could imagine. LOL and I loved every minute of it I swore I was about to become the next Timbaland Protege, but something happened on another day, years later I produced from 15 to 19 moving from Fruity Loops to Reason where I started banging out some good tracks, beats and style got better and better. The day something else happened, though, was the day I was a songwriter. And no, this isn't no pretending to be a songwriter, but knowing that is what you are. Well lets speed this up to today 23, defined style...strong lyrical content, subject matter, fresh vocal melodies, and arrangements, different ideas, and a strong point of view, blending with hard drum patterns, emotional, yet defining melodies, power ballads, rock ballads, urban rock, pop rock, soul pop, I have no genre. Well I kinda do, Urban/Pop/Rock/Soul/Experimental ...Im mixed all up in there...I love Keri Hilson...that is my chick...I understand her, and I think she is real. Shes my favorite female writer and I love her voice. Ne-Yo is probably the most consistent and is my favorite Male writer in the game. Esther Dean, another favorite female writer, and her voice is crazy different, I love it, as you can see, im defining my influences artist and writer wise to give you an idea of something. Ill keep going Claude Kelly, another favorite male writer. Johntha Austin, another favorite male writer. Cristyle <---hot female writer, James Fauntleroy, of course Justin Timberlake, Rico Love. I have others as well but you get the point. Artist wise though, and as you will hear in my music I love everywhere from Neyo to Esther Dean to Celine Dion, to Santigold, to One Republic, to Missy, Biggie, The Veronicas, Toni Braxton, Lil Wayne, Jazmine Sullivan, Miguel, Robyn,John Legend<---another favorite, Keri Hilson, Justin Timberlanke, Nikki Flores, Bruno Mars, Adam Lambert, Usher, Rihanna, Michael Jackson, Alicia Keys, Chris Brown, Lady Gaga, i mean the list goes on and on and on. You get the point. And Producerwise TIMBALAND, DANJAHANDZ <----WITHOUT A DOUBT MY 2 FAVORITES EVER, Neptunes, Boi-1da, Stargate, Drumma Boy, Jim Jones, of course Polow Da Don, and more but...YOU GET THE POINT. YOU SEE WHERE I WANT TO GET, YOU SEE WHERE I AM GOING. NOW I AM GOING TO GIVE U ME
My style is different..very URBAN, yet can be very POP, can be very ROCKISH, can have a touch of SOUL. THAT IS ME. I HAVE PERSONALITY AND I DARE MYSELF TO BE LIMITED BY ONE STYLE. Shoot...u might hear me singing "Jolene" with Dolly Parton...most likely not, but..YOU GET THE POINT.
As for my purpose?!?! My purpose is to become a top notch writer, first and foremost as well as a devloping artist.
I AM A WRITER. I WILL TAKE THAT BEAT AND WRITE AN EMOTION. AND U WILL FEEL IT. IVE BEEN THRU LIFE, AND AM CONTINUING TO EXPERIENCE.
MOSELY MUSIC GROUP...INTERSCOPE...U HEAR ME CALLING? IM READY...

Ghost

Written By: Orlando Smith

As The Tick Tock Ticks
On The Clock
I Can Feel Her Coming
As The Mood Drops Lights
Turn Out
I Can Hear My Heartbeat
As The Sunlight turns To Rain
I Swear I Can Feel Her Touch Me
As The Night Would Lead The Day
I Can Feel Her Voice Approaching Me

I Can Feel Her Presence
Touching Me
I Can Feel My Heartbeat
Im Scared As I Could Be
I Can Feel Her Voice Approaching
I Can Feel Her Presence Touching
Me
When Im Looking Around
She Starts To Sing

Haunting Me
Shes Haunting Me
When Im Looking Around
She Starts To Sing
I Can Feel Her Ghost Is
Haunting

As Reality Ticks
With The Clock
I Can Feel Theres Something
And As The Living Room
Lights Go Out
I Swear I Can Hear Her Heart
Beating
As The Moonlight Turns Away
I Swear I Can Feel Her Touch
On Me
Shes In Another State Of Pain
I Can Feel Her Voice Approaching Me

I Can Feel Her Presence Touching Me
I Can Feel My Heartbeat
Its Scary As Can Be
I Can Hear Her Voice Approaching
I Can Feel Her Presence Touching Me
When Im Looking Around
She Starts To Sing

Haunting Me
Shes Haunting Me
When Im Looking Around
She Starts To Sing
But I Can Feel Her Ghost Is Haunting

Insomnia

Written By: Orlando Smith

When The Day Is Calling
And The Night Has Fallen
The Day Is Gone And
The Night Has Fallen

Day To Night
Night To Day
I Try To Sleep
But It Wont
Work For Me
I Try To Breathe
But It Doesn't
Do A Thing
I Try To Close My
Eyes
And I Fantasize About
Lullabies or Rock-a-byes
I Need To Fly
To The Land Of Sleepytown
In Outer Space
Where The Day Is Night
And The Night Is Day
I Cant Figure It Out

I Cant Relax
I Cant Lay Down
I Cant Sleep
I Can Relax
I Walk Around
All Night Eating
And Its All
Cause i Ain't Sleepy

I Need To Figure It Out

Insomnia
Is Taking Over Me
Insomnia
Is Taking...

All Night
From Night To Day
I Cant Sleep
No It Doesn't Work For Me
No Technique
Has Proven Me Anything
The Pills Are Another Thing
I'm Up Yet Another Day

I'm Losing My Mind
In The Midst Of It All
There's A Piece Of My Brain
Trying To Keep It Together
With The Rest Of My Thoughts
In A Bunch
Its Becoming Too Much

I Could Hear It Loud
Lullabies Or Rock-a-byes
I Need Some Time
In The Land Of Sleepytown
In Outer Space
In The Back Of My Head
Maybe I Can Tap In

I Cant Figure It Out

I Cant Relax
And I Cant Lay Down
I Cant Sleep
I Can Relax
I Walk Around
All Night Screaming
And Its All
Cause i Ain't Sleepy

Insomnia
Is Taking Over Me
Insomnia
Is Taking...

I'm Over The Things
That This Does To My Life
I'm Over The Tricks
That It Plays With My Mind
With The Rest Of My Thoughts
In A Bunch
Its Becoming Too Much

I Cant Figure It Out

I Cant Relax
I Cant Lay Down
I Cant Sleep
I Can Relax
I Walk Around
All Night Eating
And Its All
Cause i Ain't Sleepy
I Need To Figure It Out

Insomnia
Is Taking Over Me
Insomnia
Is Taking...

I'm Losing My Mind
In Midst Of It All
There's A Piece
In My Head
Trying To Pull It Together
With The Rest Of My Thoughts
In A Bunch
Its Becoming Too Much

Invisible

Written By: Orlando Smith

And There It Went
I Have Decided I Would
Split
We're At The Point
Where We
Could Never Agree
Should Never Go Down
Like This
And There It Goes
We Have Decided
On Our Own
We're At The Point
Where This
Could Never Be Fixed
Been Broken Way Too Long

And I Am Done
With Loving Her
I Am Done
With Loving Her
I Am Done
With Loving Her
I Am Done
With Loving Her
I Am Done
With Loving Her
I Am Done
With Loving Her
I Am Done
With Loving Her
I Am Done
With Loving Her
Now She's Invisible

Your Invisible
To Me
Your Invisible
To Me
Your Invisible
To Me
Your Invisible
To Me
Your Invisible
To Me
Your Invisible
To Me
Your Invisible
To Me
Your Invisible
To Me

This Is It
She Has Decided
She Would Dip
She's At The Point
Where She
Can't Even Meet Me
Halfway
We Have Split
We Called It Quits
And There It Goes
We Have Decided
On Our Own
We're At The Point
Where This
Can Never Be
Put Back Now
I Have Disappeared

And I Am Done
With Loving Her
I Am Done
With Loving Her
I Am Done
With Loving Her
I Am Done
With Loving Her
I Am Done
With Loving Her
I Am Done
With Loving Her
I Am Done
With Loving Her
I Am Done
With Loving Her
Now She's Invisible

Your Invisible

Your Invisible
To Me
Your Invisible
To Me
Your Invisible
To Me
Your Invisible
To Me

We've Subsided
Our House
Is Past Empty
It's To The Point
Where We
Have Packed Our Things
And Left What We Don't Need
Anymore
We Have Decided
We Are Grown
Its To The Point
Where We
Review What Seemed
To Be
Now Let's Move On

Cause We Are Done
With Love In Here
She Is Done
With Loving Me
I Am Done
With Loving Her
I Am Done
With Loving Her
I Am Done
With Loving Her
I Am Done
With Loving Her
I Am Done
With Loving Her
I Am Done
With Loving Her
Now She's Invisible

Your Invisible
