David G Smith: Upcoming Shows

Album Release - Who Cares

World Wide

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!

Byron's, Pomeroy, IA

Happy to announce that I'll officially kick off the Who Cares tour at one of the best venues on the planet - BYRON'S PLACE!!! It's an institution, it's a songwriter sanctuary, it's a Dead Head fan's dream! If you've never been there, this show would be a good time to check it out. I'll do a couple of long sets. 8-11p

Private Event - Give Back Series

Cheyenne, WY

Bringing music to those who cannot always access the arts.

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 

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
