David G Smith: Upcoming Shows

Wine & Song

Della Vita Wine Lounge, 203 1st Ave SE, Cedar Rapids, IA

I will be on tour out west for the 2nd half of 2019 in support of the new album, Who Cares. So I wanted to be sure I got back to CR one more time for a show. And Della Viti is just the BEST!!!! You'd be hard put to find another venue in all of CR that's as cool as this place and the folks who work there. Wine & Song...great combo on a Ju-ly evening in the great state of Iowa!

Bluebird Cafe: Dave Cofell, Alicia Michilli, Shannon LaBrie & David G Smith

Bluebird Cafe, 4104 Hillsboro Pike, Nashville, TN 37215

The Bluebird has been good to me! They've kept me in their loop for over 15 years....and my 'thank you' to them is to bring in shows that feature some of the best talent you'll ever hear on any stage. Call this show "SONGS FROM THE HEARTland" as these performers hail from IA, NE, MN & MI. Tix go on sale at 8am CST one week in advance of the show via the Bluebird Cafe website.

In Concert @ The General Store

We're talking north country....yoopers...great lakes...almost Canada Aay! American Pickers have been to this place so it's gotta be cool! Even if the AP's hadn't been here....the town sits on a Great Lake! It's gotta be cool! I'll do a two hour show in an turn of the century general store. That's more cool right there! $10 at the door.

Radio Campaign For New Release: "Who Cares"


David's new release "Who Cares" will hit radio stations across America and hopefully pick up a few spins and do a little charting in the process!

Album Release - Who Cares

World Wide

It's been a long, bumpy road to this release: a friend lost, Blue Miller (my producer for the past few years); the loss of several aunts & uncles within a few months of each other in a close-knit family; the steady downhill process of losing a parent to Alzheimers; and continuing elder parent care....this project is finally coming off the back burner. Stay tuned for more!

ANNOUNCING: "Who Cares" Fall Tour


Multi-state tour through the midwest, west, southwest, west coast, Pacific NW.... and back! Watch the tour page for the most up-to-date news on shows in your area!

In The Silence ©David G Smith  

She was always there for me 
She was always there 
With roots and canopy 
As unruffled as the morning  air  
I could count on her-ad-vice 
SHE was like a mother to me 
Now all I see in her vacant eyes 
(is) Vulnerability  

In the silence  
I’m learning how        
Two unfettered souls__ are talking now  

I didn’t know this language 
I didn’t know this life 
All I felt was the anguish 
(of) having to see her in a different light 
She used to be this one thing 
She was a rock for me 
But now there is this something--- new 

In the silence  
I’m learning how        
Two unfettered souls__ are talking now  

There are no rules 
There are no roles 
There is only real 
To FILL up all the holes______  

In the silence  
I’m learning how  
Two unfettered souls  
Have never been so close  
As we are right now
