:: You have to catch this man live! Really can’t wit for him to come back to Europe.
Two years ago, folk troubadour and world traveller Steve Smyth released his unique and brilliant debut album A Hopeless Feminist. He has been relentlessly touring since, playing shows all over the world and living the life of an itinerant songwriter. Now based at Australia’s NSW south coast, Smyth is putting forward his sophomore LP Exits from which we already enjoyed the singles Shake It and Written Or Spoken.
Exits was officially released on September 05, 2014 via Ivy League Records. The set of eleven songs will be available as download, CD and 12″ vinyl LP. You can buy the digital album from iTunes or order your physical copy of Exits here.
Recorded at Echo Park in the shadow of the Hollywood Hills, the album was produced by the team of Joey Waronker (Atoms For Peace, Thom Yorke, Beck) and Gus Seyffert (The Black Keys, Norah Jones). They were working in Seyffert’s home studio which describes Smyth in a press release as “a house full of amps, you couldn’t walk… instruments covered the walls and floors.”
