Singer/songwriter JoSMITH has teamed up with critically-acclaimed producers Jesse Frasure and Shane McAnally to release an initial four song collection, Introducing JoSMITH, available digitally today. Blending country, pop, Motown and soul together for a unique and timeless sound, Introducing features tracks co-written by JoSMITH: “Queen of Fools,” “Old School Groove,” “Dance Dirty” and “Posterchild.”
“Getting to make music with true creators like both JoSMITH and Jesse is the reason I came to Nashville and the reason I stay,” said McAnally. “Jo’s passion, her songs and her voice make this a dream project, and I cannot wait for the world to discover what we’ve been working so hard on.”
“After you put down the pencil and close out the mixes, there’s nothing like stepping back and being completely fulfilled with a project,” said JoSMITH. “To have the team, the producers and the opportunity to innovate a sound that is all my own, is a gift I’m beyond grateful to have. My only hope for this EP is that listeners will enjoy it half as much as I enjoyed making it.”
“Jo’s voice over this style of music was a match made in heaven,” said Frasure. “I’m truly grateful she’s let Shane and me help craft her musical journey.”
“Old School Groove,” written by Ben Burgess, Bobby Huff and JoSMITH, premiered on Sirius XM The Highway’s “On The Horizon” program Oct. 15.
JoSMITH is signed to SMACKSongs, a powerhouse publishing company led by McAnally and Josh Osborne. McAnally, who has earned 25 No.1s for both production and writing, enlisted Frasure to co-produce Introducing JoSMITH.
