Bryan Elijah Smith is based out of the Shenandoah Valley in Virginia. With over 1,000 songs penned & 11 independent releases, Smith is creating a self-produced legacy that began with his first song at the age of 18. The music cradles all things ‘Americana’ at heart & at hand without shying away from a truly uninhibited pop sensibility. Crossing a wide array of genres, what gets produced has been compared to the likes of everyone from Bruce Springsteen to Kings of Leon. Smith recently won 2nd place in the prestigious Chris Austin Songwriting Contest at MerleFest 2018 where he was 1 of 12 songwriters chosen out of 1,000+ entries. Smith is touring in support of his latest release ‘In Through The Dark’; currently available exclusively on Vinyl & CD.
