O, Lost!

Even the artist is apt to go astray, for he too is obliged, sooner or later, to observe on which side his bread is buttered.

Listen to a crisp ass song from the new album Magic, “Sit Around.” Its a great choice. 

Sad Brad Smith



“November (Dear John)”

Sad Brad Smith has given us a fine song about John F. Kennedy, our 35th President.

He played and sang all of the things.


In his own words, Brad says “…for my bio you can just say I’m a straight songwriter from Chicago.”  He is currently finishing the mixing of a new record as we speak.

When you’re away, I’m restless, lonely,
Wretched, bored, dejected; only
Here’s the rub, my darling dear,
I feel the same when you are here.
