RSU Radio Know How to Pick Them...

RSU Radio has been playing a lot of Sam Smith’s music…songs like “Latch”, “Life Support” and “I’ve Told You Now”. His music is infectious and we have had a lot of requests to play more of his music. In October, RSU Radio Music Director, Braeton Hightower, and Promotions Director. Houston Gaither, attended CMJ where they got to meet not only some of the artists the station features but the promoters we work with every week.

Karl Delossantos, Editor of Smash Cut Entertainment, recently wrote an on-line article on the “Top 10 CMJ Artists” that included Sam Smith. This is what he said about his music: “The first thought in my head when I heard Sampology’s set during Sounds Australia’s showcase was Disclosure. His sound is shockingly similar to the mix of disco and R&B that not only launched Disclosure, but also Sam Smith into mainstream success. However, what sets Sampology apart is when you dig deeper. While his music is extremely catchy and entertaining on its own merit, it’s his AVDJ performances that will give you the extra nudge toward joining his fandom.”

And fandom, is the direction he is heading… Smith has agreed, along with Bono, Ellie Goulding, Sinead O’Connor, Bastille, Ed Sheeran and One Direction have all agreed to lend their voices to record a new updated version of “Do They Know It’s Christmas?” The song was also recorded in 1984, 1989 and 2004 to help raise money to help famine in Ethopia, this new one will have a new set of lyrics to raise awareness for the Ebola epidemic in Aftrica.

We will be hearing more and more about Smith Smith..so stay tuned to RSU Radio
