David G Smith: Upcoming Shows

4th Annual African Dinner

Tri-City Jewish Center, 2715 - 30th Street, Rock Island

This very special annual event is gathering steam! Please take a closer look at the poster (just click on it:). Money is raised by high school students to create an education scholarship opportunity for students in Kenya. Told you it was special! Tickets are only $5 available at the door. The kids prepare and serve the food. I will join both the African Choir & The African Drum & Dance Collective for an on-stage performance. This event is sponsored by Interfaith Teen Project and Sara Detweiler Scholarship Fund. 309-788-3426 for more information!

World Wide Album Release - Who Cares

It's been a long, bumpy road to this release: a friend lost, Blue Miller (my producer for the past few years); the loss of several aunts & uncles within a few months of each other in a close-knit family; the steady downhill process of losing a parent to Alzheimers; and continuing elder parent care....this project is finally coming off the back burner. Stay tuned for more!

"Who Cares" Fall Tour To West Coast - TBD

Multi-state tour to the Pacific and back. Standby for details!

In The Silence ©David G Smith

She was always there for me 
She was always there 
With roots and canopy 
As unruffled as the morning  air  
I could count on her-ad-vice 
SHE was like a mother to me 
Now all I see in her vacant eyes 
(is) Vulnerability  

In the silence  
I’m learning how        
Two unfettered souls__ are talking now  

I didn’t know this language 
I didn’t know this life 
All I felt was the anguish 
(of) having to see her in a different light 
She used to be this one thing 
She was a rock for me 
But now there is this something--- new 
Possibility_______  

In the silence  
I’m learning how        
Two unfettered souls__ are talking now  

There are no rules 
There are no roles 
There is only real 
To FILL up all the holes______  

In the silence  
I’m learning how  
Two unfettered souls  
Have never been so close  
As we are right now
