Te’ V. Smith

Te’ V. Smith is a very inspirational poet, bringing his poetry to the rhythm of African drums. Here he explains his career as a writer and the creation of his song, “Decline of The Diaspora”

Inspired by a brief studio writing series with the rock group Left Of Eden I found myself havin written more songs than the project required. With encouragement from the lead singer Matty Moe I began writing enough to form a short EP for entitled RUIN & RESTORATION with the single Decline Of The Diaspora.
The freedom and humility I experienced learning the texture and voicing of this style allowed me to see more of the intensity in my writing and to the surprise of my poetry I realized that I am indeed a rocker as well.
