Johnsmith

Folk singer/songwriter Johnsmith was born into a family of ten children in Dewitt, IA. After learning to play the guitar at 19, he began writing songs, leading to a career that found him playing over 150 dates a year. A winner of the New Folk competition at the Kerrville Folk Festival, he has also won songwriting awards at the Telluride, Rocky Mountain Folks, and Falcon Ridge Folk Festivals. He self-released his debut album, Hole in the Clouds, in 1998, and followed it with To the Four Directions (2000), Traveler (2002), and Kickin' This Stone (2004). He has also recorded two duo albums with Dan Sebranek, Runaway and No Turning Back, and was part of the duo Smith & Mayer, who released In the Blend. On April 18, 2006, he released his fifth solo album, Break Me Open. ~ William Ruhlmann

Have known John for many years but had lost touch. Finally found a way listen to his music all the time through Pandora. There is no other like him. His music comes from his spirit.

John writes beautiful music, music that tugs at your heart and transports your soul to places its never been before--his music belongs to the ages.

Johnsmith (and John Smith is his real name) is one of the nicest people on this planet. He is a gentle soul with an incredible ability to write and deliver music that speaks directly from heart to heart.

Thanks, Johnsmith, for taking me away from my finals paper...I am transported to the coast of Maine. Somewhere tranquil and perfect.

He comes around to Ft Collins, CO once a year, and I look forward to it all year long. His music is great, and his small, live shows are amazingly centering and grounding. He can take you right back to your essence within a few notes. Highly recommended!

This dude can spin a tale in a smooth and melodic manner. I really enjoy his sound, but also the honesty in his lyrics.

I have seen him live... he is passionate and sincere and very spiritual. He's also an excellent storyteller (as all good songwriters are!) He makes me proud to be a Wisconsinite as well!

Incredible. Would like to see live. Sounds like he really has a heart. "This Old Barn" or something like that should be included. Have worn the CD out!

I will echo what sspahos said "do anything you can to see him live". John is ther real deal singer/songw r i t e r . You will leave amazed that he isn't known by all.

Very nice - has a solid country feel to it, but without the overproducti o n that usually accompanies most country music - sounds genuine.

Excellent vocals and guitar work, he is new to me, I will look for more of his music.

I first saw John perform more than 20 years ago and there is nothing that makes me smile more than witnessing his joy for music. Spread the word, and do anything you can to see him perform live. He lightens every heart.
