Smith is a guitar picker with an old-timey voice. Her first record, Moon Child, comes across as a mid-life coming-of-age story. As an insomniac, Smith wrote this first batch of songs by moonlight. They evoke a sense of belonging, juxtaposed with escapism, as she croons about long-term love, grief, and her draw to the night sky. Adventures in Americana says, ”Her authentic, rootsy sound, falling somewhere between country, folk, bluegrass and old-time music, is a pitch-perfect vehicle for the themes she explores in this five-song EP.”
Tapers notes: Set 7/10 from Muskie Days 2023. This is a SBD only recording, I had planned to do MATRIX recording, but my audio recorder had an error during Kelley's set, so none of it recorded. But, thankfully I was able to get SBD recordings for all of the Muskie Days sets from the sound guy, so it all worked out.
