Dallas Smith delivers a SiriusXM Artist Confidential

Dallas Smith

On November 29th we gave SiriusXM subscribers a very cool live listen to new songs from Dallas Smith’s new release Lifted. Dallas and his band stripped down the songs at the Media Club in Vancouver and also threw in a couple of very cool covers. The first cover was Wasting My Time, a track know well by Dallas as he and his former band Default released the original in 2001. Defaults debut album The Fallout went on to sell over 4 million copies worldwide. The second was Smith’s take on the Imagine Dragons hit Radioactive.  Safe to say it might be the only professionally recording of the cover where banjo is played.

Here’s a few things I can take away from this exclusive event.

  1. Dallas actually cares! He has met fans every day of his life for almost 15 years now, and still today he greets each one with the same enthusiasm and respect he did when his music career started.
  2. Time on stage shows. Ask any performer/band/group the following. What was your best show, the 1st or the 500th? Everyone will answer the $500! Dallas and team have 1000’s of hours under their belt elevating thier shows high above other bands in any genre.
  3. This is not your Mom and Dad’s country music, it’s everyone’s country music! The audiences come in all ages to meet at 1 common place “Good times”.
