With 10 solo releases to his name, Richard Smith has achieved a position in music like no other. Collecting accolades such as Best New Artist and Album of the Year with his solo debut, Inglewood. His career skyrocketed while simultaneously holding down guitar responsibilities for another smooth jazz icon, Richard Elliott, with whom Richard recorded 6 #1 albums for the Blue Note label, over 10 years. Before the age of 30, Smith chaired the one and only department of its kind, Studio/Jazz Guitar at the prestigious University of Southern California. Among others, Lee Ritenour, Paul Jackson Junior, Andrew York and the entire L.A. Guitar quartet are USC alum. The opportunity to tour the world has brought even more ambition. Smith now sets to lay groundwork for new musical adventures and expand the repertoire of guitar in music education. To learn more about Richard Smith, visit him online at www.richardsmithguitar.com
