Regarded as one of the greatest acts in all of the UK by radio show Best of British Unsigned, is Eddy Smith & The 507. A 5-piece band whose soulful blend of blues, country & rock draws comparisons to that of Ray Charles, The Band, The Eagles, and other pioneers of their genres.
Produced by multi-instrumentalist and mixing engineer James Le Huray, was the band’s 2019 debut album, released in the form of a two-part EP. They then went on to perform live their title track “A Little Too Late” on BBC Radio London and a sold-out launch at the London famed entertainment venue, 229.
Fast forward some time and the band has newly released “Strangers (Since I’ve Been Loving You).” “The very first band collaboration when beginning the project over 5 years ago, and one of the tracks on the first EP,” says Eddy. “It ended up becoming our most popular song among our fans. So much so, we decided to release it as a single.” Detailing the ups and downs of falling in love. Often reminiscent of Joe Cocker, Van Morrison, and JJ Grey, Smith’s gravely rasp cries out in hope, hurt and sorrow, as he takes us for a ride on the rollercoaster of love.
Eddy is currently out in Germany playing open-air shows to help promote the song, premiering on Radio Frankfurt.
