An accomplished singer/songwriter, Smith is creating his own sound, “Church&B.” We are going to explore his career, inspirations, his upcoming Gospel day party “Water to Wine” and his debut album “Yours, Saintly.”

Saint Smith Bio:

The “new classic” is being redefined thanks to R&B crooner, Saint Smith. Hailing from Baltimore, MD, the 27-year-old singer-songwriter is blending today’s R&B with 90’s soul music. Inspired by artists from D’Angelo to B. Slade (fka Tonex), SMITH has created his own unique sound, donning it “Church&B”. Already performing with, and impressing the likes of Faith Evans, Tweet and Kim Burrell, to name a few, SMITH is proving to become one of R&B’s most promising new acts.

Growing up in a dual pastoral household, SMITH was introduced to music, particularly Gospel, at an early age. Inspirational recording acts such as The Clark Sisters, The Winans and Shirley Caesar were the soundtrack to SMITH’s budding artistry.  When left unattended, SMITH would secretly listen to secular artists such as Prince, D’Angelo, Faith Evans and Maxwell for hours.

“They’ve really helped shape the way I think musically,” says SMITH.  “I grew up in church.  Both of my parents are pastors, so I definitely have a heavy Gospel influence in my music and concepts.”

Now residing in Atlanta, GA, Saint Smith has taken up a new musical craft, DJ'ing, and has been performing all over the city. He loves combining his Gospel background with his love for 90s and 200s R&B. His debut album will be released in Q4 2022.
