Patty Smyth: “Build A Fire”

Posted by on Oct 13, 2020

Born in Brooklyn and now bouncing between the Big Apple and Malibu, singer-guitarist Patty Smyth has spent more than a decade on the road with her backing band, kicking ass with her pre-existing catalogue of ferocious arrangements and fiery performances. But after nearly thirty years, this Grammy and Oscar nominee’s finally conceded to pleas for new material and returned with the appropriately-titled comeback It’s About Time.

Featuring two covers and six originals, this 8-track finds Smyth revitalized, completely in control of her element, and openly thankful for the relationships she’s kindled over time, namely on one celebrating twenty-five fulfilling years of marriage on “Build A Fire”!
