Album Notes
“Stay Awhile” features everything from the playful lyrics of the title track, to the sweet melody of “Waltz For Dorothy” (featuring Hans Teuber on alto sax) to the heartbreak of “Tryin’ to Get By”. Michael Eads guitar leads the way in the swinging tune, “Ready for Love”. Smith tributes Count Basie with his composition “Basie Steps” once again featuring “Hans solo” on tenor sax. Seattle’s Hammond B-3 master, Roger Wood, is featured on “As Long as I’m with You” and “On My Knees to Pray”.

SmoothJazz.com Review
Seattle-native, award-winning singer/songwriter and world-class performer, Ryan Shea Smith serves up his sophomore release STAY AWHILE… the project focuses on Ryan’s soul-stirring lyrics as it truly highlights his rich, sophisticated voice. The appeal is authentic songwriting craftsmanship with jazz and blues sensibilities in that the artist has a feel and vibe that conveys excitement and spontaneity… all the while he sings with tremendous confidence and dexterity. STAY AWHILE features nearly a dozen of the Northwest’s best musicians with RSS handling double duty on keys and guitar. Think Harry Connick meets Randy Newman meets James Taylor. Every song is riveting… my favorites include the title track, “On My Knees to Pray” and “As Long As I’m With You.” Fans of soulful vocals, lyrical genius and sophisticated arrangements need to click to buy NOW… I became a huge Ryan Shea Smith fan from note one… I tracked down his first recording, GUILTY & BLUE... another winner!
