7/21/2014 1:46:00 PM Singer-songwriter Adam Smith performs tonight in Village Living Room concert series
Adam Smith has toured and performed for audiences all across the nation, sharing his music at events where he interacts with all his fans directly.
Multi-talented singer-songwriter musician and visual artist Adam Smith will perform in a special summer concert at the Center for Positive Living tonight.
The Center for Positive Living is located in the Village of Oak Creek at 45 Castle Rock Road. Tickets are $10 at the door, which opens at 6:30 p.m. with the concert starting at 7 p.m.
Adam Smith is a natural. Born in Big Stone Gap, Va., raised in Cloverlick, Ky., and discovered on the streets of Nashville, Smith is self-taught and naturally inspired to create his moving, original music.
Adam Smith's continuing journey led him to Arizona. His debut album "Another Way To Get To Heaven" was released in the spring of 2010 to rave reviews, an autobiographical soundscape of songs representing his continuing desire to create and connect with the world around him.
His second album, "Around The Bend," released in January 2013, continues to take his sound in new and inspiring directions.
"This record is about a turning point. I wanted to document some things that are shifting in me personally, and some of the changes that are happening to us as a world," said Smith. And, in February 2013, in celebration of Valentine's Day, he released an EP titled "Cupid."
From his home base in Arizona, Smith has toured and performed for audiences all across the nation, sharing his music at events where he interacts with all his fans directly.
"I really love meeting new people and playing my music for them," said Smith.
Smith's music is available on iTunes, Amazon.com, and other online retailers. He also continues to create visual art, and several pieces and paintings have been on display in galleries throughout the southwest.
Smith also lends his creative and performing talents to numerous charitable and community organizations, most notably the Teen Lifeline peer-to-peer suicide prevention hotline in Arizona. He donated all the proceeds from his single "A Friend Is A Stranger" to Teen Lifeline, and continues to appear at events and shows benefiting this organization.
Founder of the Living Room Music Series, Shondra Jepperson, said, "I am totally excited to have Adam with us tonight! He is a brilliant talent and people are going to want to get to CPL Sedona early when the doors open at 6:30 p.m. because we are expecting his concert to be sold out." She continued, "Adam also has quite a story that people will be intrigued and interested in hearing as well as his music. I'm pretty sure besides his CDs, he'll also have some of his amazing artwork for sale tonight."
CPL Sedona's seating is limited to 40 comfortable chairs, with a stage platform and excellent sound system. These concerts have been allowing intimate, up close and personal showcases with some of the finest performing artists in Sedona and the Verde Valley every Wednesday since October 2013.
The door will open at 6:30 p.m. with the concert starting promptly at 7 p.m.
Admission is $10 cash only and because seating is limited it is highly recommended to arrive early since tickets are available only at the door the night of the concerts. After this special concert, the Living Room Music Series will resume its weekly Wednesday evening concerts starting the first Wednesday in September.
