Work hard, be kind, don't stop.
Drawing from the Americana tradition and firmly grounded with a pleasing pop sensibility, the performing songwriter team, Jen and Scott Smith, and their band, Naked Blue, have become a mainstay on the folk/pop scene. They quit their day jobs in 1991 and have been writing, recording & performing music ever since. The strength of their songwriting has allowed them to easily transition between intimate acoustic performances and full band shows on some major stages including DAR Constitution Hall (DC), Webster Hall (NY) and The Bottom Line (London).
Scott & Jen’s obvious joy & camaraderie on stage together and easy rapport with their audience are the backdrop to their trademark performance, defined by Jen’s instantly recognizable voice and Scott’s passionate and impeccable guitar work. Over the years they’ve developed a reputation for great songwriting as well and their music has been featured in film & television spots on The Young & the Restless, Brooklyn South, Jack & Jill, That’s Life, America’s Top Model, Mein Leben & Ich and in the films The Girl Next Door, About Sarah, June, Sex Drugs & Democracy, The Smokers and Second to Die.
With previous AAA and community radio success in the U.S., Europe and U.K. from their past 5 releases, 2014 will see them back out on the road and the airwaves. Their most recent CD, ‘Weightless’ (2013) is a toss up of authentic Americana, purely satisfying pop hooks and a some unabashedly good rock n roll guitar work supporting Jen’s smoky, intimate and award winning voice.
