by TV News Desk - Jun 20, 2019

Jamestown, the first successful English settlement in the Americas, is best known for the legend of John Smith and Pocahontas, but now archaeologists are on the hunt for a pioneering and controversial forgotten founding father. On July 30, 1619, Sir George Yeardley presided over the first democratic assembly in English-speaking America. Just a few weeks later, he purchased the first captive Africans for an English colony – opening America to the horrors of slavery. Smithsonian Channel's probing series AMERICA'S HIDDEN STORIES has pulled back the curtain on history we thought we knew, such as the groundbreaking revelation that Revolutionary War hero General Casimir Pulaski was intersex. Now, a special episode of the series reveals how Sir George Yeardley and a single year, 1619, set the course for the nation's future. AMERICA'S HIDDEN STORIES: MYSTERY AT JAMESTOWN premieres 400 years after the assembly's anniversary on Monday, July 29 at 8 PM ETPT. (more...)

John Smith's HUMMINGBIRD Video Premieres At Billboard, New LP Out NowJohn Smith's HUMMINGBIRD Video Premieres At Billboard, New LP Out Now
by BWW News Desk - Apr 9, 2019

UK-based critically-acclaimed folk maestro John Smith, whose brilliant new album Hummingbird was released on March 22nd via Commoner Records/Thirty Tigers, has unveiled a new video for the album's title track via Billboard. The video, directed by Simon Whitehead, depicts Smith traversing the beautiful countryside of Somerset, England with his guitar as he heads to a performance in a local pub, interspersed with scenes of a young woman, Adelie Lavail, dancing. 'I just took a walk around the countryside where I live, and we found this fantastic dancer to flit in and out of sight, like the titular hummingbird,' Smith told Billboard. 'We decided to put as much of her in the video as possible. What she's doing is so visual and so satisfying to watch, just beautiful -- better than staring at me, right?' Getting the 'right' video for 'Hummingbird' was very important to Smith. 'The song itself is really the catalyst for the whole album,' he said of the song, one of three oringials on the album amidst traditional folk songs. “I didn't want to give it a title that belonged to something someone else wrote 100 years ago. So when I sat down to write, 'Hummingbird' came out of me really quickly, within an hour. It's the rare song that tumbled out, and I was lucky to capture all the pieces. As soon as it arrived I thought, 'This is the glue that's gonna hold the whole thing together.'' (more...)

John Smith's HUMMINGBIRD LP Released via Commoner Records/Thirty TigersJohn Smith's HUMMINGBIRD LP Released via Commoner Records/Thirty Tigers
by BWW News Desk - Mar 22, 2019

Hummingbird, the new album from UK-based critically-acclaimed folk maestro John Smith, is out today via Commoner Records/Thirty Tigers. Hummingbird, Smith's purest, most elegant set of recordings to date, is a moving mix of modern-day folk tunes and other traditional songs that reach as far back as the 15th century. 'Some artists are a bit precious, when approaching old folk songs, not trusting the sturdiness with which they've survived hundreds of years of interpretation. Smith doesn't do that,' said Folk Alley in its premiere of the album yesterday. 'He wraps himself around them and them around him, tugging here and stretching there to make them fit his own needs, while never abandoning the heart of their matters. Two things hit the listener right away: Smith's singing and playing. He's exceedingly gifted at both,' they remarked. 'His honey voice is the raw, unfiltered sort — sweet, smooth, and healing, but with a hint of grit when you want it most.' 'Folklore must maintain an ongoing conversation between the past and present,' says PopMatters, 'and that is what we hear in the beauty and mastery of Smith's playing.' (more...)

by TV News Desk - Feb 8, 2019

UK-based critically-acclaimed folk/Americana maestro John Smith, who has released five albums and toured the world for almost fifteen years playing as a session guitarist and singer for the likes of Joan Baez, Lisa Hannigan, and David Gray, will release his latest album Hummingbird in the US on March 22 via Commoner Records/Thirty Tigers. Smith became a folk devotee as a teenager after hearing artists like John Renbourn for the first time; Renbourn, a major inspiration and influence on Smith's art, has since dubbed the artist 'the future of folk music.' 'The six strings of my guitar have granted me access to a sacred space between things, the unconscious interweaving sensations that allow us that gentle buzz on hearing a good folk song,' Smith explains. 'I've been immeasurably fortunate to open for and even play with some of my heroes and influences in the folk world. Their work and their generosity of spirit have been a constant reminder that I must keep playing, recording and touring, no matter the cost. There is always work to be done in the service of good music.' (more...)
