Appearing on stage with real pioneers of outlaw music like David Allen Coe and Jerry Lee Lewis, Hobson Smith learned from the authenticity of great artists. He has appeared in various venues across the U.S. Including nightclubs, radio and television. He is a native Texan and a Houston/Galveston based performer. He is currently "The Voice Of KNG Chronicles" a southern lifesyle television show starring Randal Reeder. The show is being broadcast weekly on cable (Sportsman's channel) and on satellite(Pursuit channel) and has many loyal viewers world wide. He often writes and records songs for the show. Hobson also makes guest appearances on "KNG" including the comedic video "I Love Hog Meat" which was televised and continues to gain attention on the Internet.
His latest project "OUTLAW TROUBADOURS" is Hobson's latest collection of exceptional work. "Old Hank, Willie, Waylon, Townes Van Zandt opened up the doors, now there's Jamie Johnson, Hayes Carll and a whole new breed of outlaw troubadours. These words are from his self penned title track. This innovative singer/songwriter isn't interested in following the mainstream. "He's blazin' his own Honky Tonk trail". There are a variety of moods displayed in songs like the reflective "OLD GRAY COYOTE" then there's a character study of the dark side with the menacing "HIRED GUN". There are tunes guaranteed to put a smile on your face like "TACO TRUCK" and "I LOVE HOG MEAT". There are classics in the making with "TEXAS RAIN", "ANGELS WITHOUT WINGS", and the poignant "L.A. MISSIN' YOU". You'll escape to "feel the gulf coast wind warmin' your skin" with "LIFE'S A BEACH" or drink a beer and raise some hell with the retro rockin' "DIXIEFIED". His "fangs cut deep like new barbed wire" in "TEXAS RATTLESNAKE" and we've all had days when we said "IF IT AINT ONE THING IT'S TEN".
Songs like these make you want to hear more from this creative man who can touch the soul with great depth and understanding and in the next breath sing with humor and joy. His music is a winning combination of a unique and imaginative blend in the art of songwriting. His "truth is in the song,you can hear it in each line that he sings".
Hobson Smith is a true outlaw troubadour with a heart, "spinnin' his own gypsy tales".
Watch for Hobson Smith's new video later this summer to make it's debut on KNG Chronicles!
