Grant Maloy Smith Album Release Show @ Rockwood
May 8 @ 3:00 pm| 10-12
American Roots/Country artist Grant Maloy Smith is set to debut his brand new album Dust Bowl on June 1st. Come join us for the full live performance of it @ Rockwood Music Hall!
Grant pulls influences from old country, bluegrass, folk, and even takes cues from traditional Celtic music, making it a truly unique, distinctly American genre and celebrating the melting pot culture of the US. In Dust Bowl, Smith tells heartfelt stories of real people set to the backdrop of the history of the 1930s. In addition, Smith blends in influences from the music made from the traditional instruments brought by farmers along their journey away from the drought-affected areas. Smith recorded Dust Bowl with a full roster of A-list musicians, including Rob Ickes on Dobro and Lap Steel (Willie Nelson, Dolly Parton, Mary Chapin Carpenter), Jeff Taylor on accordion (Amy Grant, George Strait, Martina McBride), bassist Bill Wittman (Cyndi Lauper), keyboardist Tommy Mandel (Bryan Adams, Dire Straits), violinist Lorenza Ponce (Bon Jovi, Adele, Sam Smith), percussionist Matt Burgess (Willie Nelson, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Jewel), and drummer Skoota Warner (Cyndi Lauper, Santana, Lionel Richie).
