Charting a dynamic path in the American pop-rock realm, Matt Smith’s World is back with their latest album, Into The Light. Building on the momentum of the 2020 hit, Being Human, this ten-track odyssey promises a rich fusion of funky, jazzy, guitar-centric electric pop blues, and rock.
Guitar virtuoso, vocalist, and celebrated producer, Matt Smith, returned to his Saratoga, New York roots in 2022 to pen six tracks. The remainder found their genesis at Austin’s legendary 6 String Ranch, co-owned by Matt Smith and Bill Kaman.
Into The Light holds a special place in Smith’s heart, dedicated to his late mother, Helen Smith. A listen promises not just musical enrichment but a spiritual upliftment, with each tune masterfully crafted by some of the most exceptional talents in the 2023 American pop-rock scene.
