Christopher Smith Preps New Album For Release
Smith began his career as a visual artist before moving into music. He wanted the new album to have a more cohesive sound that was built on both pop idioms and a full band sound. The songs on Earning Keep vary from lush, texture-based pieces with sparse, minimal pianos ballads to harsher, stark noise. Smith was one of the last artists Todd Simko (Pure) worked with at his Mushroom Studio on Van City before passing away in April of this year.
