Goldcoast, Queensland], Australia – March 15th, 2016 – Born in England and Raised in Australia, Richard Smith is a musician of three cultures with a strong root in the blues, rock and roll and country of the decades of the 50s, 60s and 70s.

“Put simply, I love this music, and I love to perform it. I’ve already been on X-Factor 2010 and the Best Rock Americana Album 2016 from The Akamedia and now I want to play more than just clubs and Bahai centers,” explained Richard Smith today. “I’ve been writing since I was a teenager and have been fortunate enough to work with the Australian ''Giant' musician Charli Holoubek and his band—they recorded my songs!”

Fans can hear examples of his music on CDBaby, where the songs Story, Party, Story, Persian Love I Need Love, Blue Moon, What A wonderful World, I Got The Power which were already released. Although Smith dreams of touring the world, he is also seeking more distribution throughout the United States, United Kingdom, Australia and Canada via radio and magazines.

Tonight's the Night

Tonight's the night
That you belong to me
Tonight's the night
There'll be no company
Oh, tonight, tonight's the night
Tonight's the night
Yes sir, oh, yes, it is
Now listen to me, honey

Someone should call
Don't answer the phone
Somebody knocks on the door
Tell 'em we're not home
I just want it to be, darling
Nobody but me and you, honey, tonight

I don't want no friends around
There's a whole lot of sweet talk, girl
I'm gonna be putting down
Cut off the stereo
Forget about the late, late show
'Cause tonight, honey, oh, tonight
Listen to me

(Tonight's the night)
And when the lights are low
(They you belong to me)
I'm gonna lock all the doors
(Tonight's the night)
And throw away the key, baby
(You're mine exclusively)
And then I wanna talk to you
Some more because tonight
I got something I want to say to you

Honey, tonight, ooh
I wanna hear you say I do
And that ain't all, sugar
And when I get through
I want you to hold me, squeeze me
With all of your might
Because tonight
(Tonight, tonight)
Tonight is the night
