Waiting For Smith probably has one of the most interesting back stories of any artist. He used to be a ski instructor in the French Alps until he broke his back in two places during avalanche training. In the helicopter on the way to the hospital, he had an epiphany that if he was ok that he should dedicate his life to music. After spending a year in bed recuperating and learning to play guitar, he formed Waiting For Smith, named after endlessly waiting for their original drummer Smith, who always failed to show up. His new single “Lines of Love” was inspired by a long-distance phone call he made while walking around King Cross at night. The song is a plea for someone to hold on through a difficult time in their life, to know you will always be there for them. “I want people to feel hopeful when listening to Lines of Love,” said Waiting For Smith when speaking about the song. “We can overcome the speed bumps in the road, our lives and our relationships and that is surely where the good stuff comes from – out of the struggle,” he added. “Lines of Love” is out now on Apple Music and Spotify.
