Power, emotion, passion---these are just a few of the adjectives used to describe Smith's high-energy live performances. A stage performer from the age of 5, Tim is one of the northeast's top tenors in the Irish genre. His voice is well-regarded, but he is even better known for the acting talent and storytelling ability he brings to his work. Honed by many years working in New York City, he brings an unusual combination of musicality and character portrayal to every song. Heritage traces the Irish themes of love, emigration and The Troubles, with songs from each. But it also showcases the heritage of the classical Irish tenor, from the John McCormack-era 'Macushla' to songs of today's popular Irish Tenors. These tracks are sure to make you think, make you laugh, make you feel, make you cry. Give thoughtful consideration to the context of the songs in Irish history, and you'll know why!
