This could be the beginning of a beautiful friendship.

In actuality what we have here is Sarah Smith, the sultry smoky songstress of hard-working The Joys out of London with Paint Robb Johannes post performance at C’est What. On the third night of their four week of Tuesdays residency, Paint declared Sarah Smith is “a hero and inspiration”.

These two bands aforementioned [Paint and The Joys] were a lead-in to this night,  both seen for the first time at The Horseshoe Tavern on a Thursday way back in January. Have camera in tow and the advice learned from  a vital lesson that Toronto Star photographer Boris Spremo taught me at the opening of Roy Thomson Hall – always be ready – and my rule: always give it your best shot. Then you never know what to expect but sometimes magic will happen in the future.
