DIY Spotlight: Loren Smith

Because he was born into a musically inclined family, Loren Smith’s musical career has been a clear choice since his early childhood. The soul-pop artist has worked relentlessly, maintaining genuine optimism, good will and self-motivation.

As a child, Smith would spend hours practicing singing before joining a local choir. As he matured, he chased music throughout his youth and into adulthood.

After graduating college with a degree in music, Smith jumped straight into working as a freelance artist, singing backup for film and television projects as well as numerous artists. He also performed at amusement parks, such as Disneyland, Universal Studios and the Special Olympics.

Recently, Smith released his debut single and video, “Break Free,” and watched it go viral overnight, leading to the video being featured on The Today Show.

His latest release, “Beautiful Smile,” continues to exemplify both his sensational vocals and his positive perspective, in music and life. “My goal,” he says, “is to always perform with integrity, passion and skill, and to teach everyone, as I’m learning, to love themselves and each other better.”

During September’s National Suicide Prevention Week, Smith offered a free download of the live version of his single, “Beautiful Smile,” and this month as part of National Bullying Prevention Month he is releasing his latest single, “Always Remember.”
