Steve Smith better known as the frontman and incomparable lyricist of Grammy award-winning electronic alternative band Dirty Vegas
is about to release a brand new solo E.P titled ‘Union‘.
The 4-track release is a collection of crafted songs that glide over delicate, pulsing rhythms. Written during a stellar year for the British singer/songwriter, that saw him perform for HRH Prince William at a star studded gala at Kensington Palace on November 10th 2016, this new release captures the vocals that have been heard everywhere from the super clubs of Ibiza to the acoustic venues of the UK and USA.
Smith has just completed a 37 date tour as the support for UK legend Glenn Tilbrook of Squeeze. Tilbrook says, ‘Steve is one of the most singularly talented musicians I have had the pleasure of working with’
During a 22-year career, Smith has supported a diverse world of artists from Moby, Tears for Fears, Paul Weller, and Underworld to Groove Armada, and was the first electronic artist to perform at the Grammy Museum in Los Angeles. Dirty Vegas were named No.6 in Billboard Magazine’s ‘Top selling Electronic artists of the 2000s’ with over a million albums in the USA, Gold Status in the UK and Italy. As a producer he has remixed Platinum selling artists such as Madonna, Calvin Harris and Justin Timberlake, and the song ‘Late Nights and Street Fights’ from his first solo album ‘This Town’ was used as the main theme for the FOX TV show ‘Standoff’, which was subsequently nominated for an Emmy. He has also taken on the role of composer, scoring the cult film ‘Boys & Girls Guide to Getting Down’.
Steve Smith “UNION” will be available on iTunes worldwide.
