An album featuring a slew of musicians that Smith has worked with in the past including Grammy Nominated guitarist Andre Bush.

Smith's latest album features Grammy Nominated Guitarist Andre Bush, Jay Jay Hicks, Fernando Montoya, Chris Nguyen, Jonathan Weinmann, Mark Manda, Nunzio Urbina, and Armondo Joe Vazquez.  

I've spent a lot of time working on developing this album and I'm proud of it.  Now, I'm turning to my fans to help see it to completion.

As it is, the project is currently being mixed and still awaits mastering and duplication.  

Already, the unmixed tracks have reached Fresno, Maine and New Hampshire radio stations and has even had some interest in other countries!  Help me get to the next step by supporting what I do.
