Music Road Records is pleased to announce the addition of Jonah Smith!
JONAH SMITH SIGNS WITH MUSIC ROAD RECORDS
Smith, a well-respected songwriter and longtime favorite of roots music aficionados, broke out on a national level after a stunning vocal performance won over audiences on the most recent season of the NBC performance series “America’s Got Talent,” where he advanced to the semi-final round.
The huge stage productions and boisterous covers of pop songs like Sam Smith’s “Stay With Me” that Smith became known for on television stand in stark contrast to his prior live shows, which were obviously more intimate affairs.
“I like to tell stories and talk with the audience, and I play a pretty eclectic array of songs – a little bit of rock and roll, Americana, blues, soul, and folk,” he says. “But on that big stage on national TV, I really got to take things to a new level – bigger, more energetic, and exciting. I had a lot of fun doing it, and I’m writing new songs with that in mind.”
Working with Music Road Records has given Smith the chance to bring those new live elements into the studio. “It’s the first time in ten years that I’ve had the support of a label. My goal is to make the absolute best record of my career,” he says. “I want to make something that I’m really proud of. Something that will stick with people and make them want to listen more than once.”
