Ashleigh Smith returns with a song that on first listen reminds us why she was the winner of the Sarah Vaughn International Jazz Vocal Competition in 2014. Her debut album Sunkissed was released on Concord Records in 2016. Let It Rain (TopCat Records) is her first single since 2017 features fellow songbird Chantae Cann.
It’s a beautiful song with Jazz stylings that could crossover to other broadcast formats. This LaGrange, Georgia native is here to stay as she provides an inspiring song letting us know even in the rain things will be alright. Check out In The Rain with Debb Moore during Jazz at Sundown on Atlanta’s Jazz Station 91.9 WCLK.
David C. Linton is Jazz 91.9 WCLK Program Director and host of Serenade To The City, heard Monday-Friday at 10pm.
