Featuring Singer-Songwriters:

Kevin Smith

"Take Some of Mine the long-awaited release from native Asheville singer-songwriter Kevin Smith. The record was recorded in the beautiful town of Marshall North Carolina just north of Asheville at Marshall Sound Studio with Amos McGregor at the helm. The 10 original tracks were recorded with an all-star band of local touring musicians as well as the vocal and banjo talent from dear friend and musical cohort Kristoffer Emanuelsson of Sweden. The album takes the listener on a journey with stories of love, loss and longing. Smith draws his influence from real life, past present and future. He has never been afraid to take a long hard look in the mirror and write about what he sees.

Spalding McIntosh

A songwriter from Brevard NC. He has been described by some as “smooth and powerful folk” but thinks of himself primarily as a songwriter whose genre knows no bounds. “I just write from the heart and sometimes it comes out rootsy, sometimes country, heck I’m not above writing a pop song! As long as I can get it out I’m happy.”

Billy Martin

His music stems from a deep background of classical rock music. Growing up with a musical family, and always being around garage bands, it was only a matter of time before he picked up a guitar himself. Although he started with the oldies, Billy is greatly inspired by an array of newer artists drawing from a wide range of genres. He likes to say that his music is mostly of a sad tone, but they're also cathartic, and there are a few poppier songs to even out the mix.
