"Big news to report. I am in the process of making a brand new CD. It's called Backroads, the title of one of the 13 all-new original songs. Co-produced with my long time friend Tom Prasada-Rao with stellar musicians, Darrell Scott, Tim O'Brien, Dan Sebranek, Elisi Smith-Waller, Larry Dalton, Radoslov Lorkovic, Rick MacDonald, and a few very talented Irish musicians. I'm very excited about the project and wanted to let you all know about it and reach out to friends and fans for a little help making it a reality." - Johnsmith

Johnsmith is one of those artists so often under-recognized – he possesses a genius that cannot be denied, ignored, or overlooked. For the past thirty-plus years, Johnsmith has been sharing his music all across America and abroad. He has become a favorite at festivals, clubs, and house concerts alike. In addition to being a Kerrville New Folk Winner, Johnsmith has released eight solo CDs to rave reviews, leads musical tours to Ireland, teaches songwriting, and has served as a staff songwriter in Nashville.

"I don't know who this Johnsmith guy is. But after his album crossed my desk I feel like I do. Its heartfelt, well-written songs casually slipped into my CD player and didn't want to leave .. They mirror life, and are sung by a voice so comfortable with them that they seem like old friends' stories that you've lived too. "

~John Porter, Performing Songwriter
