I went to a house concert today and brought my camera. I am glad I did. This is Darden Smith.
Smith, a musician with an eclectic Texas background dazzled us with stories and ballads spanning his 20+ year career. He was quick witted and ernest in both his songs and tales.
The following song is crafted in the appellation tradition. The turn of Smith’s lyrics are nothing short of clever. His use of language is astonishing, shedding light on phrases that bring a twinkle to one’s eye. I couldn’t help but fall into fits of giggles with this one.
On the other side are songs like this one, reflective and hypnotic.
Good stuff! Check him out. http://www.dardensmith.com/
