Back in June of 2012 we launched a series of releases called “INTROs”, designed to introduce or re-introduce blocSonic listeners to artists with extensive catalogs of great music that absolutely deserves to be heard by more ears. The series began by spotlighting the band, The Womb (which has since been deleted) and I’m happy to say that today we return to the series with the incredible Mr. & Mrs. Smith!
For anyone who’s been keeping up with our netBloc series, you may recognize the name Mr. & Mrs. Smith, the nom de plume of artist and musician Hollis Smith, who was featured twice in that series. Now’s the time for you to get to know Hollis’ music a whole lot better. We’ve crafted a tasty compilation of 14 incredible gems for you to enjoy, from the wide body of 40+ releases in the M&MS catalog.
As for the M&MS sound, I’d say it can best be described as Johnny Cash meets Tom Waits meets Bob Dylan. Hollis’ music is firmly rooted in the south without succombing to the formulaic and boxed in “Country” aesthetic. This is southern music for music listeners who appreciate artists with something honest and real to say.
Thanks to Hollis for allowing blocSonic to help spread the music!
Of course, thanks once again to you for downloading & listening. We always strive to deliver the music you’ll love. Please spread the word about blocSonic, if you enjoy what we do. Remember… everything we release is cool to share! Always keep the music moving… share it… blog it… podcast it! If you’re in radio… support independent music and broadcast it!.
