Your Smith: 90s Revival R&B at MOTR October 6th
A night of pop and R&B is exactly what MOTR Pub is offering on October 6th. Your Smith, BAUM, and Super City will take the stage this Thursday at 10 p.m.
Your Smith is the new moniker of Caroline Smith. She released her first EP, Bad Habit, just last month. It consists of four 90’s R&B influenced pop tracks. There is something fresh about the retro style of her music. Her carefree vocals blend smoothly with the warm music behind them. This style was ultimately inspired by the Minneapolis native moving to Los Angeles in 2016, where she explored LA’s culture. Regarding her name change, Smith says, “The change in name is less of a reinvention and more of an engagement with that part of me (the new sound). I’m still me. I’m still your Smith.”
BAUM is a dark pop singer from Los Angeles. She released an EP this year called Ungodly. Its five tracks are filled out with her powerful, soulful voice, reminiscent of Amy Winehouse and Adele. Her vocals are backed up by electric percussion sounds, synthesizers, and guitar. BAUM is quite new on the scene, but she is definitely someone to watch.
And finally, Super City is a guitar-driven pop band from Baltimore that formed in 2014. The five-piece consists of Dan Ryan (vocals, guitar), Greg Wellham (vocals, guitar), Jon Birkholz (keyboard, guitar, vocals), Brian Brunsman (bass, vocals), and Ian Viera (drums). The band has two albums, most recently this year's Sanctuary. The band’s sound is inspired by the likes of Tears for Fears, Prince, and Queens of the Stone Age. The group has performed with acts like White Denim and Rubblebucket.
You won’t stop dancing to any one of these artists. Come see Your Smith, BAUM, and Super City for free at MOTR Pub on October 6th!
