Stephanie Smith's "Not Afraid" to release in-stores December 23rd! STEPHANIE SMITH POISED FOR DECEMBER 23RD RETAIL RELEASE
OF “NOT AFRAID” DEBUT ON GOTEE RECORDS
New Artist To Travel To El Salvador With Compassion International
(Nashville, Tenn.) October 8th, 2008 --- After initial raves with her Itunes release earlier this year, pop-rocker Stephanie Smith is poised to unveil her debut album Not Afraid at retail stores this December 23rd. Along with her continued work with the non-profit organization Soles4Souls, Smith will travel to El Salvador with Compassion International in early December.
Cmcentral.com has raved about Not Afraid by saying, “Opening strong, moments of electronic whomping foretell an edgy momentum… Smith’s fierce vocals lay out restorative encouragement to those uncertain of their own worth.”
On the marketing front, a new radio single, “In My Eyes”, is currently going for adds at Rock radio. A music video for the title track “Not Afraid” was also just recently shot and will be widely available in the upcoming months.
Smith, a new face on the music scene, has been touring non-stop this year as momentum builds and people take notice of the 24-year old. Her packed out schedule found her making the rounds at music festivals such as Rockfest, Ichthus, AtlantaFest, Music in the Park, Kingdom Bound, and Riverstages, as well as a return to Agape Fest, the original stage that lead her to meeting TobyMac and eventually signing a deal with Gotee Records. Smith has also performed as part of various conferences that have included Feedback Conferences, Secret Keeper Girl Tour, Pure Freedom, and the Asphalt Assault Tour, as well as the upcoming One Life of VA (10/20 Vansant, VA), and the Freedom Experience (various dates Aug-Nov. www.reachyourcity.com). In addition, she joined illusionist Brock Gill as part of the Florida-based SuperWow Camps, where nearly 350 individual youth groups attended weekly. Fans can anticipate more live performances by Smith as she joins the upcoming Winter Jam tour, headlined by TobyMac and running January 8th-March 15th, 2009.
