Album Notes
Nashville-based Kari Smith gathers crowds with her fresh vocal style and contagious smile, whether it’s local fans in a crowded coffee shop, or on stage performing for thousands. Rather than waiting to be discovered, Kari finds her audience in local and regional venues, and fills her time outside of performing with writing, recording, and teaching music. In addition to solo acoustic performances, Kari performs with other bands in a variety of genres as a vocalist, keyboardist, and rhythm guitarist. Through these experiences, she has had the opportunity to share the stage with such national acts as Huey Lewis & the News, Sugar Ray, and Switchfoot. Her powerful rendition of the National Anthem has been heard at Richmond Braves games, concerts including The Doobie Brothers and Hootie & The Blowfish, an Extreme Fighting Championship in Richmond, VA’s Coliseum, and the Toughest Cowboy rodeo in Nashville’s arena, The Sommet Center.

"As a vocalist, Kari is mature beyond her years," says producer Matthew Roberts. In 2005, she independently released EP "go with you", including the bluesy, driving rhythm of "I Call It Love," which was featured in independent film "Middle of the Road" (August 2005, Red Cactus Films). Producer John Henneberger says that her writing is “superb and reflects that of a seasoned veteran while maintaining a freshness in approach needed in today's musical landscape." In August 2006, she followed up with an independently released full-length album, self-titled "Kari". She is working on a third record to be released in 2008 by Music Row producer / engineer Dennis Money on independent label Sweetsong Nashville.

Her first TV appearance in October 2007 featured an acoustic performance of her original music on PBS show “The Music Seen”, and her first network appearance on CBS’s “Virginia This Morning” aired in January 2008.

Kari made the move from Richmond, VA to Nashville, TN in 2006 to further her pursuit of performing and writing. She also holds an AA in Liberal Arts. Kari is a member of NSAI (Nashville Songwriters Association International) and ASCAP (American Society of Composers and Publishers.)

This CD has it goin' on!
Real down to earth listening!

Margaret Morris

authentic, bluesy, emotional
I bought this CD before hearing any of Kari's original music and mainly because I wanted to support a friend. However, I was hooked after listening to it once, and the CD hasn't left my car cd player in over a month. It is difficult to compare Kari to other artists because her sound and style are so original. There is raw emotion in all of the lyrics, and although there are sometimes moments when rhymed words seemed forced, the writing is generally outstanding.

she's something special...
I was immediately hooked when I heard this on the website. This girl has alot of talent for someone so young and I predict big things if she can get a wider exposure. So spread the word because we've got a real treasure here in Richmond!
