The Isaac Smith Band: 2:00pm – 3:30pm
Born and raised in Atlanta, GA of his father’s church, there is no denying his southern influence. Filling in from a young age on any instrument that was needed in that lively pentecostal church, he quickly began molding his musical roots in black gospel and hymns. It was clear through his youth, he was being groomed to be a musical figure in the church world but like many of us, he realized there was more to life and more to faith than “church”. After relocating to Savannah, GA, his rediscovery of his faith and his music began. He never thought as himself as a writer but in 2014, he wrote his first EP titled ‘Magnolia Bloom”. Writing became something as equal to playing instruments for people and definitely more fulfilling than singing and playing covers at the local bars. 2017 is a promising year for Isaac and his band. Their new record titled “Young or Old” released on October 6th. In the last few years, they’ve grown as a band and evolved their sound into a unique blend of rock, folk, and alt country pop while keeping a soulful approach.
