Still working on that hot first release.



Making his mark on the world in the gospel music and entertainment industry is Writer, Producer, and Music Director, Joe Smith. Born and raised in the rough, east side neighborhood of Detroit known as the North End, Joe escaped the negative environment that surrounded him through music. Beginning piano lessons at the age of 10 and writing his first song at the age of 15, Joe has gone on to play keyboards and/or serve as the music director for many major gospel music artist such as Fred Hammond; Karen Clark-Sheard; the Whitfield Company; Kierra “Ki-Ki” Sheard; and the late Chris Jones. Joe is presently music director (MD) for Dorinda Clark-Cole and the Legendary Clark Sisters as well. He can be seen on their live DVD release entitled “Live-One Last Time”.

Joe’s passion for creativity and perfection has been lauded in the music industry as he was chosen to produce songs on the soundtrack for the Warner Brothers movie Deep Blue Sea starring Samuel L. Jackson and L.L. Cool J; and has also worked on the music score for the movie Nikita Blues a Showtime independent film.

But Joe’s biggest passion is helping new artist realize their dreams. As a result, Joe is releasing the much-anticipated CD entitled Transparent in March of 2008. Transparent embodies many of the issues, struggles, thoughts, and feelings that many Christians experience but may feel shy about acknowledging or expressing. To help express these ideas, Joe assembled together a group of singers and musicians called The Joe Smith Project, and several new and up-and-coming artist. Transparent will cover many genres from Contemporary Gospel to Neo Soul and promises to be a major tool of ministry and healing to all who hear it.

In addition to music, Joe is also developing a stage play, a TV show and a documentary film. So...keep your eyes and ears open for more Joe Smith/Soul Food Entertainment projects in 2008/2009.
