Michael Smith, once called "the greatest songwriter in the English language" by Rolling Stone Magazine, might be best known for his song The Dutchman. Smith's rich and challenging songs have been covered by more than 40 artists including Suzy Bogguss and Steve Goodman.
Heather Styka "puts her vocal prowess on full display alongside her talent for telling stories in her most recent well received album North.' Sykas refreshing and melodic singing and guitar playing will leave you wanting more!
