David G Smith: Upcoming Shows

Recording New Album

Blueman Studios, Nashville, TN

Back in the studio with producer Blue Miller. Working on 12 good ones this time with guest appearances by Vince Gill's fiddle player, Larry Franklin; America's Got Talent semi-finalist, Alicia Michilli; and the incomparable Mary Gauthier....just to name a few. I'm not doing fan funding. But you can be a part of this record. Sign up to my newsletter for the low down on that!!!

Party On The Patio (Hy-Vee)

 —  —

Hy-Vee, 2930 18th Ave, Rock Island, IL

OK....this is different:) You can get groceries for the week, hit the Redbox, do your banking, pick up stamps, and score big by buying flowers for your sweetheart and.... LISTEN TO LIVE MUSIC from 6-9p. Talk about a one-stop shop! I'll be playing all my hits.....and a few covers to boot! And the music's free.... at HyVee!

The Driftwood Pub's Bix & Ragbrai Riverside Celebration

The Driftwood Pub, 1201 East River Dr, Davenport, IA

This year Bix and Ragbrai are happening on the same weekend! How cool is that! I'll be doing a special show (6:30-10p) at the Driftwood to celebrate these two long-standing Iowa traditions. The Driftwood includes indoor/outdoor dining options along the Mississippi River along with a fully stocked bar. Super cool setting with a show to welcome both Bix and Ragbrai revelers. 563-323-1041 for dinner reservations and more info.

Northeast Tour - TBA

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
