Alexis Vear/Michael C. Smith Alexis Vear is a soulful Singer/Songwriter/Multi-Talented artist who is inspired by the images she sees in her mind, and in realities of everyday life. From the time Alexis can remember, images have passed through her. Alexis has always felt a deep calling to share these images in different ways.Alexis was born and raised in Indianapolis, Indiana. As a young child, Alexis started writing songs secretly, while openly expressing herself through visual art. Around the time Alexis turned thirty two, she started sharing her music, and decided to take a break from her work in fine visual art.In 2004 Alexis released her debut album, Never Give Up, an acoustic record full of heart and soul that received national airplay on NPR. Internationally her CD sold on 3 continents, including Asia, North America, and Europe. In 2005 Alexis moved from Greensboro, North Carolina. to Atlanta, Georgia..In 2008 Alexis released Let It Go which was inspired by her love of John Mellencamp, Tom Petty, U2, and Atlanta singer songwriter Shawn Mullins. Alexis dedicated Let It Go to all the woman of the world searching for, or living their dreams, and all the men that support them.Let It Go is a compilation of songs with a flavor of Rock, Alternative, and Indie.In 2011, after taking a long hiatus from Fine Visual Art, Alexis began again fulfilling a calling to share the images that pass through her in song, into many expressions of different art forms. Her favorite is through oil paintings. Visit her store page, and check her merchandise that is inspired by her music, and love of music!!!A portion of the net proceeds from Alexis Vear Creations will go to support institutions, organizations, and foundations that spread hope, peace, and love through out this world, using educational and creative endeavors. Alexis believes children truly are the foundation of this world, and wants to contribute her energy to help ALL children, have the ability and opportunity to learn, find their passion, and live their purpose in this lifetime.Alexis is now preparing to make a third release of songs straight from deep within her soul. While living in Georgia, she has been bitten by the blues, and is excited to create an organic compilation that will blend with her love of blues, country, rock and folk together into something that will truly touch her listeners heart. Michael C. Smith is a songwriters songwriter, creating lyrically-driven slices of the American experience uniquely rooted in the veins of each great vision of wanderlust that has come before him. Whether you hear Dylan, Waits, Williams or Cash when you listen to his work, you will pick out the pieces of the country that you know, feel its history under your feet and know the goodness of music crafted with heart and soul.His newest work, the LP Prophet on the Barstool, was completely fan-funded and the finished product sounds both lush and sparse at the same time, old and new somehow, just like the melodies themselves. Prophet on the Barstool portrays a glass of liquor on the front cover and an open Bible on the back, and that dichotomy lends these songs a real sense of human struggle and determination. http://www.michaelcsmithmusic.com/
