Graham Smith

Graham Smith is an independent singer/songwriter from the Chicagoland area, currently residing in Niigata City, a small but thriving port city on the northwest coast of Japan. With three self-produced solo albums ("The Fall of Troy"(2009), "Aki"(2010), and the most recent "Now"(2011)) Smith continues to create new music for himself and his listeners, hoping to spark their respective interests and muse. With thoughtful lyrics and catchy melodies, Smith's music is approachable yet thought-provoking, down-to-earth yet complex, striking for it's simplicity and straightforward approach, but above all, human. With influences ranging from The Beatles to Wes Montogomery, from The Kinks to Andrew Bird, Smith finds himself enjoying a diverse array of influences while still maintaining as primary his own distinctly original sonic flavor, not watered-down by the transparent and industrialized mimicry so common to popular music today.
