Dan Smith of Listener began in Fayetteville, Arkansas, and is now located in Atlanta, Georgia. Listener has been touring the world for the past eight years developing a unique style of ‘Talk Music.‘ Vocalist Dan Smith has been the driving creative force of a rotating cast of musicians. Throughout different tours the lineup of Listener might change, but the goal has always been to create honest music with energy from the heart.Over the past four years Listener has toured extensively in the US, building momentum in small and large cities alike on house show tours in garages or attics to venues and bars opening for large acts and headlining their own tours.Talk Music is a term coined by Dan to describe his poetry-and-music style of art. Coming from a hip-hop background early on, Smith has been a part of that world in one way or another his entire career. These past few years has seen him take on a completely different direction from his former projects, making Talk Music the main goal with band mate Christin Nelson.
