The Happy Negro Podcast


Nov 1, 2017

Welcome to our 7th episode! Today we interview songwriter, producer, engineer and overall cool dude Kevin Smith. I met Kevin back in 1994 when I was working in the music industry and writing for Tara Kemp on Warner Bros records. Kevin and I co-wrote music for various artists in the Bay Area (Sakai, Midnight Voices) and I knew early on he had a huge French background. He speaks on growing up as a black American youth living in Paris with his mom. He is also the son of track star Tommie Smith who was the Olympian that raised his fist for justice in 1968. We will find out about what that moment meant to him and for his family....stay tuned!
