Mike Smith Hard working man

Singer/songwriter MIKE SMITH recently released his soulful, foot-tapping single, Hard Working Man. The three-minute release is a celebration of the men and women across America who work tirelessly day and night to support their families.

Hailing from Philadelphia, this country/southern rocker is not fresh blood to the music scene: he has produced, written, and performed with many revolutionary hip-hop artists including Slaughterhouse, Dizzy Wright, Cyhi the Prynce, Nappy Roots, RZA, and Inspectah Deck of Wu-Tang Clan, Justice League, DJ Revolution, Royce Da 5’9, Troy Ave, DMC of Run DMC, and Twista. In addition to collaborating with artists, he has extensive success in songwriting. For the past 10 years, he helped pen numerous songs for artists, with over 10 sweeping the top 10 charts.

He set up SMH Records with his long-time colleague King Tech of Sway and King Tech fame. Over the past year, they have signed 8 artists, and continues to collaborate with numerous artists. Smith started his newest record label with long-time friend and colleague, RZA. With the name reflecting the work ethic, Razor Sharp Records has signed 3 artists since its March 2015 opening.

Smith is currently working on his solo album Hard Working Man, which is a classic mix of Country and Southern Rock. The album features work from big name artists such as the Avila Brothers and Gilby Clarke of Guns and Roses.

Hard Working Man is available now on iTunes.
