Live In-Studio: Darden Smith

Thurs. 3/31 at 2pm: Texas songwriter Darden Smith joins host Rufus Cohen for a live in-studio performance.

Darden Smith's dozen critically acclaimed albums, recorded from New York to Nashville and London to Los Angeles, weave together rock, pop, country, folk and Americana influences with the musical roots of his home state of Texas. Likened to songwriters such as Nick Drake, John Hiatt, Leonard Cohen and Elvis Costello, Smith has been praised by All Music Guide as "a singer-songwriter blessed with an uncommon degree of intelligence, depth, and compassion." With Marathon, his most recent release, Smith again pushes into new territory, delivering a sweeping collection of songs that captures the stark panorama of the West.

Darden will be performing on Thursday, March 31st at 7:30. For more info, please visit AMP Concerts.
