Michael Smith E-News Feb, Mar, April






“My plane geometry teacher at Passaic Valley, the unforgettable Mr. Werner, used to say that there’s no way to describe a spiral verbally, you always wind up having to whirl your finger around. “ (On Songwriting, Feb. Blog post, michaelsmithmusic.com)


Michael interview in Lake Forester/Pioneer Press, in print.
And in the Oak Leaves, in print

Though he enjoys his forays into theater, Smith’s first love is still his music. ‘In truth, it is only in the last 10, 15 years that I have come to understand how precious it is, the chance to create. One is lucky to get to write songs and luckier still to make a living this way’.
(Lake Forester Sun Times)
