    Thank you for the play! Stateside, we do pronounce the “w” in Smithwick, which started to change spelling around 1600. Our family originally from the Midlands. The track you played, Tennessee, is about 15 years old, but I am still fond of the number. I hope at some point, you might try out the first mix from my future solo album, Black Eyes. This is more representative of the writing and arranging I am doing at this point. You’ve played a few of The Ladies Of,.. tracks in the past as well, my writers’ cohort. Thanks again! -Sammy
