Burning Alive - CD

Songs and sounds in a new land - live and live-looped instant creations which speak to moving into a bigger self and burning off the old.

Constellating Novas - CD

Keys of the piano and vibration of the voice coming together to form constellations.  These are mostly "instant songs," composed in the moment.  They occupy a special place for me.  

Fly CD

A pulsing prayer which takes flight on looped and bowed guitar with melodic vocal soaring, this song cycle takes you across many landscapes and into the ethers.

 

 

Winter Warming CD

Recorded in the depths of a rainy winter, these songs venture into the quiet, misty fog.

Meditative journeys that look within.

 

Voices CD

The human voice is the only instrument that is inside of us. Making this all-vocal CD has re-inspired me to reach within for healing, using voice to make the inner audible. May we all sing our way to a more reverent world.

"Piano" CD

"Swept me up from the first listen" - "This instrumental piano disc swept me up from the first listen with pretty melodies that made me want to close my eyes and let myself be transported by the music.. . Smith'sPiano isn't exactly light, but none of the 16 tracks weigh heavy on a listener either, or fade into the background, or dull the senses with repetition - as instrumental tracks sometimes can. . . Lots of talent, there, both in his fingers and, I suspect, in his mind and heart as well." - Jennifer Savage, Arcata Eye  

After years of wanting to do a piano album, I poured out this wave of music over a 5-day period in 2002. My motivation was to record a bunch of possible pieces for a solo dance performance that i was doing, and then to choose one for the performance (I chose the first track, "flow"). The CD is all over the place in terms of mood and style, reflecting just about everything that had been building over my 16 years of playing. The tracks are all improvised, though with some I had briefly worked out a loose structure

Dances & Trances CD

Since I played drums before anything else, I have always applied my rhythmic skills to music, but this is my first CD focused on the groove above all else. Delving into my love of ecstatic jazz, funk, soul, and a my re-enchantment with a variety of African music, I have laid down some grooves for the dance.  Drums, keyboard, guitar, saz, bass, piano, voice.
