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.

lydia-deetzz asked: thank you for keeping me company on hot summer nights when i'm lonely and out of cigarettes. magic is one of the greatest songs i've heard and it makes me feel like lou reed and a sad movie montage. thank you, sir

thanks for taking the time to listen, lydia. i hope it helps you, as you have helped me. 

Here’s the official video for “On the Beach,” featuring the legendary Austin Pendleton. 

Here’s a beautiful video of the band and I playing “Reason to Be,” a song from the new album, live at Schuba’s in Chicago. 

The new album, Magic, will be available May 20th! 

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.
