Bryan Elijah Smith, who now resides in The Plains VA, was born & raised in the Shenandoah Valley. With over 1,000 songs penned & 10 independent releases, Smith is creating a self-produced legacy that began with his first song at the age of 18. The music cradles all things ‘Americana’ at heart & at hand without shying away from a truly uninhibited pop sensibility.
It’s all about the songs & the love of writing for Smith. A multi-instrumentalist at heart, Smith plays the guitar, harmonica, piano, drums, bass & baritone ukulele. Crossing a wide array of genres, what gets produced has been compared to the likes of everyone from Bruce Springsteen to Kings of Leon. Smith is a well seasoned performer who has traveled the globe multiple times performing as far away as Australia. Plans for a 2017 LP release titled ‘In Through The Dark’ is nearing completion after 2 years of work.
