Kim Smith - Shooting Star

Kim Smith has been one of my top picks for "Artists that everyone should know but doesn't" for a very long time.  From his voice to his stage presence to just the general way he makes everything he touches sound effortless and easy, Kim has the ability to just be.  I think that's something that so many artists struggle to find.  They spend so much time trying to find their place that they forget to just experience life and Kim exudes that.  He just looks like he's feeling every word he utters and you know exactly where he stands with his music and how it impacts the emotion he's conveying.

This song is one of my absolute favorites off of "Nova".  It's full of hope and it longing but it's presented in a way that you don't feel as if he's pining for his "shooting star".  He's talking about knowing him before he meets him and how he knows that everything will work out the way it needs to.  He just has to look to the sky to be reminded that he's out there and things will bring them together one day.  He's living his life and fate will bring them together one day but until then, he'll be content to wait because he knows that goodbye isn't forever.  Kim's vocal delivery is beautiful and mostly intoxicating as you are just drawn into the lyrics and you're filled with the same sense of hope and expectation he's feeling.

I've been a fan of Kim's for a very long time and I want him to gain the recognition he rightfully deserves.  Take a listen and let me know what you think.
