Michael C Smith / Press

“Michael C Smith may get mistaken for Elvis Costello more than Elvis Costello does, but that doesn't stop him from carving out his own brand of songwriting utterly different yet just as substantial at his spectacled counterpart. Armed with firm country roots and the musical appetite of a historian, Smith has been crafting literally piles of songs. Lucky for us, that huge backlog of music is slowly trickling out to the masses.”
