Seattle-native, award-winning singer/songwriter and world class performer, Ryan Shea Smith, serves up his sophomore release “STAY AWHILE.” The appeal is authentic songwriting craftsmanship with jazz and blues sensibilities. STAY AWHILE was a winner of the prestigious John Lennon songwriting contest. Ryan also won first place in the USA songwriting contest from a song off his first record GUILTY & BLUE – another winner!
Think Harry Connick meets Randy Newman meets James Taylor. Fans of soulful vocals, lyrical genius and sophisticated arrangements need to experience this performer!
