AJ Smith takes his listeners on a musical odyssey, through honest, sanguine songwriting of epic proportions, matched only by the dynamic & show-stopping character of his live performances. An optimistic existentialist, he injects hope into even the most hopeless of circumstances, such as in penning his breakthrough end-of-times anthem, “We’re All Gonna Die,” which went viral on TikTok, broke into the Top 50 at Alternative Radio, and reeled in millions of streams on Spotify, Apple Music, and more.

AJ’s star is certainly on the rise as, in the last two years alone, he has performed on The Kelly Clarkson Show, made his SXSW debut on their largest stage, been featured as one of the top independent artists to watch in Music Connection, and wowed audiences & critics across the United States with his 10+ multi-instrumentalism as direct support for bands like MAGIC GIANT, Ripe, The Zombies, The Collection, and more.

His upcoming album is rooted in his own mental health journey, while attempting to explore universal human truths - the idea that we are all more alike than we may think at times in our journeys as human beings. It is slated for release in mid-2024.
