" Not only does he spell his name as one word, he doesn't always capitalize it. Actually he could call himself wordsmith or songsmith just as easily, because he certainly can smith a song."

"When I first heard John Smith my attention was captured by his sweet, earthy voice and fine craftsmanship, but what drew me in was his heart. It's clear that he's lived the pain in his songs and that his optimism is hope born of wisdom. That's a rare thing and a gift to all who hear him."
"Since winning the New Folk competition, John's songwriting and performing skills have become finely honed.. Audiences find his originality and genuineness totally engaging and refreshing."
Rod Kennedy of the Kerrville Folk Festival
