Stannis Smith, Esq. aka “Mr. Smith,” is an American singer-songwriter, born and raised in Albany, Georgia. Discovering his natural vocal ability at an early age, he began performing in local talent shows, school events, and church – everyone knew about him.
No stranger to the scene, Mr. Smith has written for years alongside some of the industry’s most noted creatives. From Tamar [Braxton] to Kandi [Burruss] & industry producer-songwriter veteran Daryl Simmons! His road to solo artistry has been paved with years of admirably boastful work as a songwriter, background vocalist, and vocal producer. While a student at Morehouse College, Mr. Smith began his professional music career working with super producer-songwriter Dallas Austin, and eventually signed his first music publishing deal with industry executive Hiram Hicks.
In July 2016, after spending years behind the scenes, and becoming an Attorney, Mr. Smith returned to music and released his first single titled “Warning Label.” Warning Label’s melody choices, vocal tone and lyrics instantly captured the attention of music lovers both in the U.S. and abroad. The record spent weeks at #6 on the ReverbNation Pop Charts, and is currently receiving airplay in more than 17 countries. Following up on the overwhelming response to the debut release, fans asked, and Mr. Smith delivered a solid acoustic vocal performance of Warning Label – it became an instant fan favorite.
Mr. Smith is currently writing for other artists, recording an album, and preparing for the summer release of his second single titled “Credibility.”
