Based in Santa Fe, NM, the duo first hit the national stage at NYC’s Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts, where they won the 2014 Grand-Prize of the international Mountain Stage / NewSong Competition. Produced by Pat Sansone of Wilco & Autumn Defense, Ocean of Birds releases May 20th on NewSong Recordings, and is available for pre-order at PledgeMusic.

"Beautiful music that is subtly poignant, elegantly funky, and haunting without trying to be. Their songs are direct yet often take unexpected and colorful harmonic twists and turns, delighting the ear." – Nels Cline (Wilco, Nels Cline Singers)

“…like paintings or hand printed photographs that speak and sway. The material is hypnotic and comforting, because it is crafted with patience, wit and seasoned love." ~ Lizz Wright

Michael C. Smith is a songwriter’s songwriter, creating lyrically-driven slices of the American experience uniquely rooted in the veins of each great vision of wanderlust that has come before him. Whether you hear Dylan, Waits, Williams or Cash when you listen to his work, you will pick out the pieces of the country that you know, feel its history under your feet and know the goodness of music crafted with heart and soul.

He'll be backed by a full band for the night with a handful of new tunes as well as songs from his previous 2 albums, 2014's Prophet on the Barstool and 2009's Hands of the Wicked.
