About the event
Captivating audiences with his unique, husky voice and tasteful piano accompaniment, Eddy Smith has been making his mark on the UK’s growing Americana scene. Widely recognised as one of the major male vocalists on the Country and Blues circuit, his soulful melodies and infectious song-writing has drawn comparisons to the likes of Joe Cocker, JJ Grey and Marcus King to name a few. Backed by his long-time friends, they form the multinational five-piece, Eddy Smith & The 507. Their music, engulfed by rich vocal harmonies and gospel-like organ is reminiscent of a sound from way before their time. With an irresistible blend of various Americana styles, such as Blues, Folk, Country and Rock, the quintet take a leaf from the books of Nathaniel Rateliff, The Rolling Stones, Eagles and countless other pioneers of their Genres. After appearing on some of the UK's most prestigious stages, including The Isle of Wight Festival, London's The 100 Club and The Troubadour, the band have gained recognition as 'ones to watch' on the UK Roots scene. With both national and international radio play, their songs can be heard over the airwaves across the globe.
