Welcome

This is the official website of Gary Wayne Smith. My songs are the result of capturing the stories of people and situations I have encountered in my life. I try to find the "extraordinary" side of common activities. Living in Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada, some songs are influenced by my close proximity to the sea while others are of universal appeal (Such as "You're Not Thinking About Me" which I wrote for my children to tell them my thoughts in case I leave home some day and never make it back again).

Check out the "Story/Lyrics" tab for the complete story behind all the songs on my debut CD. 

News:
Check out the new Blog tab. I have been writing "Road Stories"  for many years telling about a lot of places I have travelled to. The friends I have emailed those stories to suggested I should add it to the web site for my music, so you can read them too. Hope you enjoy and comment because they are all just my version of the experiences. 

New uploads to the site include: 
-The song "If I go" written by my buddy Everett Perry, which tells the story of a young man who leaves his family home ("This fine rock") to go make a life on his own. Everett did a great job of capturing the doubts that go through a young man's mind as he strikes out on his own.


- CDs are available in St. John's at Crafted Treasures, Obrien's Music Store and Fred's Records.


Thank you very much for all the kind comments people have made on the site thus far, I really appreciate it and I look forward to hearing more, so please send me a note!
........ Gary Smith

    Hey, Gary, Great to learn of your musical prowess. Good for you. I guess Kathy is still back in Saskatoon? You could google BJORN IN THE USA/TIDEWATER NEWS for a piece I did about my son, Bjorn, for my hometown paper in Virginia. My wife of 22 years, Eva, is a Specialty Dr. in Care of The Elderly in a large district hospital in the North of England in the NHS. She is from Slovakia but is more Hungarian, speaks Polish and Czech and had to take 8 years of Russian in school. And her English is better than mine. My biggest worry is how to get enough books for her to read in English. By the by, Bill King in Toronto was a goo pal of mine and he still hosts a radio show called Saturday Night Fish Fry. Maybe you could get a gig for your band if you were to be in T.O. at any time. Remember that Summer at the U. of T. Library? How's Gerald these days? Ain't life grand? Cheers, From Barry ( formerly Ed) and Dr. Eva Blythe, In The Shadow of Carlisle Castle, along Hadrian's Wall, North of Wordsworth's Lake District, In Shakespeare's England,
