Every once in a while we come across a new artist that gets our attention and this time it’s no different with rising star Stannis Smith . The singer/songwriter born &raised in Albany,GA has come along way from his days singing in the church choir & in school talent shows.

Growing up artist like Michael Jackson , Whitney Houston , Luther Vandross , Stevie Wonder , SWV , Brandy , Joe , En Vogue , Babyface & Boyz II Men heavily inspired him to become an entertainer. As a child his neighbor actually discovered his gift one morning as she heard him sing along to Stevie Wonder on the way to school. It was in that moment that he knew he wanted to be a singer. While in College at Morehouse Stannis realized his gift as a songwriter after performing one of his original songs during a talent show which received rave reviews and led him to a huge opportunity to perform on television. Now this wasn’t just any ordinary TV show , it was the legendary Showtime At The Apollo. The groundbreaking nationally televised show broke some of the biggest artist in the world and if you made it to that stage, you knew you were well on your way.

Stannis journey was only beginning and after graduating college he hit the ground running as a songwriter and professional background vocalist which also led to his first publishing deal with help from music executive Hiriam Hicks. Over the years he’s graced the stage alongside India Arie , Sharissa , Lathan , Remy Shand & Prophet Jones as a supporting vocalist but that wasn’t enough for him.

Now with placements over the years on artist like Her Sanity ,Jen É, Ricki Lee (Australian Idol) & Wade O Brown it was clear that his gift would always make room for him. For some artist that would be enough , but Stannis clearly has a story to tell and now is the time for the world to hear it with the highly anticipated release of his debut EP ‘ Chapter One-Six‘ which is executive produced by hit-maker Tiyon ‘TC’ Christian. The long awaited project will also feature contributions from Multi Platinum powerhouse Meelah Williams (702) , as well Grammy Award winner Kennard Garrett , Marcus Eldridge , Johnny Thomas and Cam Fletcher.
