“Jared Smith brings some sharp and pointed playing (early Seventies rock) to their sound” - Graham Reid, Elsewhere
As a solo artist, Smith focuses on his own brand of acoustic folk with an emphasis on instrumentally guitar driven music with a few lyrically driven numbers as well.
Smith draws on influences such as John Martyn, Paul Ubana Jones, Steve Gunn and Matt Langely.
“The vocals of guitarist Jared are rife with attitude no matter the context” - The Obelisk
