Granger Smith1

Granger Smith – 2/3 at 9PM at the WilmaTheater

Granger Smith (COUNTRY) at the Top Hat Lounge
9PM
Description: 
Over the course of nine albums, at a time when the music industry is undergoing a top-to-bottom transformation, Granger Smith has been building a career that is truly groundbreaking. With sold-out national tours, a social media following of more than three million, and YouTube views nearing 30 million, he has amassed an audience that is unheard-of for a purely independent, unsigned act. He has continually searched for new and innovative ways to connect with his fans and–one by one, room by room–built a national following, culminating when his last album, Dirt Road Driveway, debuted at Number One on the iTunes country chart.

Now, with the release of the 4X4 EP, Smith is taking the next step in a voyage that is both visionary and classically old-school. The EP, a preview of a full-length album coming later this year, was introduced with the single “Backroad Song,” which sold over 32,000 downloads in its first week of release and entered the iTunes Country Singles chart at Number Two, the iTunes Canada Country Chart at Number One and the Billboard Country Digital Sales Chart at Number Four.

Relentlessly touring and committed to their sound, they have criss-crossed most of the western United States since 2007, playing landmark venues such as Nectar’s in Seattle, Orpheum Theater in Flagstaff, Rialto Theater in Tucson, The Top Hat in Missoula, Brick and Mortar in San Francisco and House of Blues in San Diego.
