Kick starting Music in January at The Crown Devizes on Saturday 20th will be the hugely talented Gray Smith ......
Honest, Simple and Real, acoustic funk rock with a rhythmic groove? that infects the soul of all who hear. Impassioned and evocative lyrics with vocals that seem almost venomous in their bitterness. Delicately crafted songs, with the occasional surprise, structured in such a way they are not stifled but are allowed to breathe. Gray’s creativity has not been tempered by commercial conformity.
His songs draw you in, with sincerity in their meaning that can be related to and enables you to empathise with the performance. Faultless, mellow and raw, but never melancholy. Poignant and beautiful, calming, soothing and sensuous, all fitting descriptions of this talented guitar vocalist.
Hailing from Andover in Hampshire, Gray decided to go solo in 2009 and hasn't looked back. His understated, distinctive style is bound to win him many new fans along the way.
