Jon Smith's Voyages.jpg

Jon Smith's Voyages

Often compared to David Bowie, Queen, and Meat Loaf, the music from Jon Smith's Voyages encompasses theatrical elements throughout eclectic (and sometimes quirky) arrangements. The "band" is comprised only of Jon Smith, as he sings all vocals, plays over 15 instruments, and writes all the songs. With thoughtful lyrics, unique arrangements, and a dynamic vocal range, he's likely to captivate. Bandcamp

Mirrorsigns

"With every note of every song, they reflect an image of the world as you know it. A mystical, energetic interpretation of the audience, of themselves, of the Universe. Each hypnotic tone brings one deeper into an ethereal shadow of all existence, and each song seems to ask us if what we see is reality or an expansive reflection of a domain that lies deep within us all." - The Artistic Vision Review Bandcamp
