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

    Just listened to two of your songs while reading the lyrics. I loved the music and lyrics to both but my favorite was "You're Not Thinkin of Me". What a great tribute to your children! Enjoyed that one so much I listened to it a couple of times. Amazing talent! Did not know that you could sing when we were in school. Thought you could only blow into those brass instruments. I will be on the lookout for your CD as I am most interested in having one. Hopefully will get to hear you in person at the Blueberry Festival if all goes well. Congratulations on such a wonderful accomplishment! Janice

    Gary it is great to get to hear you touching and powerful music! I hope we can have a coffee or a cold one together this summer, somewhere... If you are in my neck of the woods again, please stop in for the night! I am enjoying China! Fascinating place and beautiful people! I am continuing to spread the word of safety, teamwork, mentoring, respect and having fun at work! Much of this I learned as a roughneck on your crew. God Bless Wilbert M
