LIVE Facebook Chat with Raphael Saadiq Guitarist and Blues Man Josh Smith on Monday, February 11

Join singer-songwriter and blues guitarist Josh Smith for an anything goes! online chat on Monday, February 11.  Music, gear, touring, sports – it’s all fair game!  The Facebook party begins at 7 pm ET/4 pm PT on Josh’s musician/band page.  To get started, “LIKE” Josh Smith on Facebook HERE.  Come early, stay late!

The event offers an opportunity to chat with the busy, touring musician about his new album, life on the road, his favorite baseball team (hint: stripes) and much more.  In anticipation of the chat, Josh’s brand new album Don’t Give Up on Me is now streaming online here.  Take a listen!

The chat will also support Josh in his bid to play Eric Clapton’s 2013 Crossroads Guitar Festival, an opportunity for which he is uniquely well prepared.  Josh began playing the guitar at age six; he hasn’t stopped.  At thirteen he was already lead guitarist for the local Florida house band, The Rhino Cats.  At 14, Josh released his first CD, Born Under a Blue Sign, and blues great Jimmy Thackery responded, “Josh is three heartbreaks away from being a true blues guitar genius.”  Seven more albums have followed, including the all instrumental masterpiece Inception.

He writes, sings and plays his own original music.  He has toured nationally and internationally with his own band, recently completing several dates in Germany.  Josh has also been in high demand as a sideman, playing lead guitar for artists including American Idol winner Taylor Hicks, blues singer Kelley Hunt, and most recently, soul man Raphael Saadiq.

To see what others think of Josh Smith’s musicianship, read some of the comments left on his Play Crossroads page.  While you’re there, check out the music and add your support for this young blues guitar master.  We’ll look forward to seeing you on Monday for some online fun, to support Josh Smith, and to talk some serious music and sports!

  1. I always loved Josh’s playing with Taylor Hicks – sadly I haven’t followed him other than that…..based on what I hear, see and read here – that will definitely be changing! Thanks!

      Thank you! Josh is better than ever. Please keep going to Facebook and to the Crossroads site to support him to play at Crossroads. He will be so awesome at that event and deserves to be there. Thanks again!
