John Smith is an exceptionally talented singer songwriter from Devon whose gravely voice has already graced The Met’s stage with Cara Dillon and Tunng.

Whether it be playing the guitar lap-style like a drum, detuning the strings mid-chorus or just straight-forward rumbling fingerstyle, his playing has prompted both hushed appreciation and riotous standing ovations across the land.

“A singular talent”The Times

“John Smith and his band continually swoon audiences with their own strain of Nu-Folk. It is only a matter of time before he is enormous.”NME
