Extra Extra

More than decade into his career as recording artist, Austin-based Darden Smith is known for blending soulful storytelling with stylistic influences ranging from country to rock to folk to blues. On Extra Extra, the veteran songwriter, who's recorded for half a dozen different labels, returns to some of his favorite compositions, re-recording past crowd pleasers such as the pop flavored "Frankie & Sue" and the foreboding "Levee Song," along with the haunting ballad "Love Me Like a Soldier" and the vivid declaration of love, "First Day of the Sun." Simultaneously looking backward and forward, Smith finds new resonance in his songs by stripping them down to their essence, offering a straightforward simplicity that bares deeper emotions on repeat listens. Smith's intimate tenor invites listeners to explore these songs with him, either again or for the first time, and investigate the passionate stories told by this modern Texas folk troubadour.
