“Living on the road sharing his heart, JD Smith was a joy to listen to this weekend as he entertained the festival with his larger then life personality and music, fun songs and some dark deep songs, we can only hope he passes through again...”

MAINE MUSIC REVIEW
“JD Smith is one of a kind. A Old Soul that comes along every now and then.Once maybe twice in a generation. He is in a class with the greats. His Songwriting, Live Shows, and performances are top notch. His Haunting Sound is like all the greats that have come before. It's Willie mixed with Merle hanging out with Waylon.”

Powder Keg Report
" From his days with Departure, Black and Blue, and SRA, I have followed JD Smith for 30 years, Never was his music more powerful then it is today, He sings songs about his life, and we all are better for having this poet of songs in our world.
" I expected to see another guy singing with a outta tune guitar, what I got was a dose of reality, the Outlaw poet is what I think of when I listen to JD Smith. His words hit hard and powerful, life from inside the jail house to the rough times on the outside, Loved one's lost and life on the run. By all means go see this man if you have the chance, you wont regret the soul searching you will do within yourself.
Swamp Water Music Review
" You feel like your on the open road, Harley's thumpin in the wind, JD's Songs hit home to every biker who has ever lost a brother or sister."
" Met and listened to a feller from Nashville Tennessee last night at Breakers, I have to say, He was a giant of a man with the most gentle spirit I have ever met. His songs made a person think about their own life, his soulful sound was a blend of Outlaw mixed with teacher. A story teller, his words tell of another way to live then by his own past mistakes.
“Best Songwriter I have heard in 25 year's.”
