DISClaimer Single Reviews (4/13/11)

Every doggie has his day. This week, it's the puppy platters that are in the winner's circle. None of the major-label offerings made my ears wild with excitement. But two pieces of indie product did.
Singer-songwriter David G Smith is a major find. He hails from Iowa, but spends most of his time in Music City. If a man is judged by the company he keeps, this guy is an A-lister for casting the likes of Mary Gauthier, Kenny Malone, Verlon Thompson and Dan Dugmore on his Non-Fiction CD. He also wins this week's DisCovery Award.
DAVID G. SMITH/You're The Reason God Made Tequila
Writer: Lori Shropshire/Deanna Walker/David G. Smith; Producer: Miles Wilkinson & Buddy Mondlock; Publisher: Shire/ZMG/Alrose, ASCAP/BMI; Hey Dave (track) (www.HeyDaveMusic.com)
—Gig alert: Mr. Smith is staging his CD release show tomorrow (Thursday, April 14) at The Bluebird Cafe at 6:00 p.m. It will feature several of his stellar supporting players from the disc, including Jonell Mosser, Jelly Roll Johnson and Buddy Mondlock. Jelly Roll is particularly prominent on this delightfully bluesy, funky, loose-limbed track. The album is called Non-Fiction, and there's audio pleasure in every track. The vulnerable, hushed ballad "In This Cage" will stop your heart. "Her Body Won't Lie" has steady, thumping rhythm to spare. "Fear (That Son of a Bitch)" is packed with wry vocal personality. Very highly recommended.
