What the Critics Said

Going headlong into the album, the first thing you experience is the pronounced Midwestern drawl ever present in Grant’s voice, and the amazing banjo work on “The Boy Who Built The Moon,” a song that is and of itself a faithful bluegrass tune that sets Yellow Trailer up for success right away. Smith’s lyrical work is just as impressive from track to track, staying tru to folk style storytelling in music while keeping it sounding fresh and enjoyable.

The elements of old and new combine so well that fans of country and bluegrass will find it an easily addictive sound, while the small pop seasoning gives it a kick for a more modern taste. The two best songs o the release are the title track and the conclusion, “Hold On To Moments.” Both present themselves with the most charisma and personality derived in the songwriting, and possess the vital pieces, including mandolin, fiddle, banjo, slide/resonator and acoustic guitar, in the most subtle of ways.~Joe Cirillo, The Aquarian

Yellow Trailer

The Critically-acclaimed American Roots Album from Grant Maloy Smith. From barn-burners like "How Long Does A Woman Have To Wait?" to the Celtic-inspired poetry of "The Boy Who Built The Moon," and the simple elegance of "Hold On To Moments," there's something for everyone on this record.
