Episode #82: Sy Smith – Being an independent artist, the process of writing/recording her new album

EPISODE #82: SY SMITH – IN THIS EPISODE:
This week’s guest is the Los Angeles-based soul music artist, musician, and producer Sy Smith. As an artist who has been on the independent grind for a while now, we chat about what it takes to be an independent musician when the music industry changes so much and she gives some great advice about how to swim though sometimes turbulent waters. We also talk about what went into the writing and recording for her newest album Sometimes A Rose Will Grow In Concrete.

For this episode, Sy Smith’s recommendation for a future Fresh is the Word guest is soul music artist Geno Young along with musician/composer/producer Zo!, who is already a friend of the show!
