Jo Smith, a soulful and gritty songwriter from south Georgia, makes music that is an extension of herself. A passionate storyteller, Jo remains inspired by the countless hours she spent spinning her dad’s vast collection of vinyl records as a child growing up on her family’s cattle farm. Her new EP, aptly titled, Introducing Jo Smith, masterfully brings listeners into her world. With the help of production super-team Shane McAnally (Sam Hunt, Kacey Musgraves) and Jesse Frasure (Thomas Rhett, Meghan Trainor), Introducing Jo Smith is a modern take on an old sound, and manages to strike the elusive balance between vulnerability and empowerment. Jo Smith’s unique sound fearlessly forges together the unlikely influences of Aretha Franklin, Ray Charles, James Taylor, KT Oslin and Keith Whitley. The single “Old School Groove” began spinning on Sirius XM’s The Highway, making Jo Smith the first female Highway Find of 2017. Introducing Jo Smith is available on iTunes. You can also find Jo on social media (@josmithmusic), and her infectious live show across the country and in the U.K.
