“… a simmering blues-rock groove that allows Smith to work his guitar from a tiptoe to a full-on sprint, while Bell bellows the lovelorn lyrics." – Rolling Stone
First-call blues/rock guitarist G.E. Smith and revered soul/R&B singer-songwriter LeRoy Bell confirm the release of their new album Stony Hill (via BMG), the first collaboration for the dynamic duo. The eleven song collection chronicles an in depth look at where we stand as an American democracy without prejudice or presumption.
“I’ve been looking for a great singer for thirty years, at least – not just a good singer, but a great singer,” Smith recalled of first hearing Bell in 2018. “I said: ‘that’s the voice – that’s the one I’ve been looking for!’”
Bell’s distinctive vocals and Smith’s stellar guitar work bring a fresh urgency to the traditional ballad “Black Is the Color.” Watch the animated video by Art Director Gary Smith for the “Black Is the Color”:
