Country American Roots Recording Artist

 

Grant Maloy Smith

American Roots recording artist Grant Maloy Smith heard the strains of bluegrass from his Kentucky-born and raised Grandmother, and it got into his blood. His 2013 album, the critically-acclaimed “Yellow Trailer,” is a collection of heartfelt songs that took listeners on an invigorating ride through the fabled American south. His widely anticipated latest album “Dust Bowl - American Stories” (June 1, 2017), expands the story. Every song is set squarely in the Great Plains of the 1930's, during the worst economic and environmental disaster that America has ever seen. Like the real history that serves as the dramatic backdrop, Dust Bowl is a powerful musical statement. Learn more about the album here.

Eileen Sherman and Grant Maloy Smith
The Indie Collaborative SM
Grant is the co-founder (with NY musical theatre lyricist Eileen Sherman) of the Indie Collaborative. The "Indie Collab" is a group of approximately 2000 independent musicians and music industry professionals. The goal of this group is to spark creative collaborations and foster camaraderie among its members. There is no cost to belong to the group, which can be joined here. The Indie Collab puts on several musical events each year featuring 20+ of its members. They've staged remarkable events all across the USA, from Hollywood to New York City, as well as Atlanta, Chicago, Nashville, Philadelphia. In 2018 they plan to add Phoenix and San Francisco to this list.
Roots Collab
The Roots Collaborative
In 2018 Grant founded the Roots Collab, a special kind of touring show. While he is the headliner and show producer, wherever he puts on one of these shows, he adds several local and regional roots, country, folk, and Americana artists onto the bill with him. "My goal is to capture the spirit of sharing and collaboration that Eileen and I created with the Indie Collaborative and add it to some of my appearances," according to Grant. "Roots Collab shows are unique - no two are ever the same. For the local artists we're providing a stage maybe bigger than what they normally appear on… and for the audiences, we're providing a richer experience than any single artist can do. I love this concept and am working very hard to bring it to life in 2018."

Grant plans to stage Roots Collab shows all around the USA this year, and expand to Europe as soon as possible. If you're a talent buyer interested in booking a Roots Collab show in your venue, please reach out today using the CONTACT form.

    He has a style that puts the “western” back in Country. There’s not a hint of cynicism or guile.

    …An engaging mix of Americana, Country and even Celtic music that creates a sonic mosaic that can be as dry as the arid fields of Oklahoma at the time but with a lilting, lingering hope underneath

    …A reminder of the darker period of Bob Dylan (“Not Dark Yet”, “Mississippi”), and it’s that good, that memorable.

    From the opening track, "Old Black Roller" … this album hums, rolls and churns.
