Who Cares

David G Smith

Hey Dave Music 2019

Review by David Bowling


David G. Smith will release his new album, titled Who Cares, August 23rd. It is an album of 12 original tunes that feature his songwriting ability. The album took a very personal direction with the passing of his friend and producer Blue Miller.

Smith is basically a troubadour who fills in his sound with various incarnations of a backing band. The focus, however, is always on his lyrics and storytelling.

Smith’s stories run from the light to the gritty, but they always tell a story. His writing is simple and mostly serious as he touches on depression, southern border issues, and the critical album ending “Who Cares.

The highlight of the album is the gentle “Shine,” which is enhanced by guest co-vocalist Mary Gauthier.

David G. Smith has produced another album of cerebral music. Who Cares is an album that deserves some attention.
