Ryley Smith

Ryley Smith is a non-native Tallahassee local who masterfully blends classic R&B and Jazz with colors of Jeff Buckley, Etta James, and Lindsey Buckingham. Smith has that unique, fresh appeal of moving, urban art. She's that busker beside a swarming subway platform that you still shoulder your way through standing crowds just to tip. She is raw, captivating, but still warm, approachable, and accessible. Her songs are snapshots into her own pointed, diverse, and unique perspectives on growing up and finding meaning in modern-day American city life.
