Smith’s debut album with Concord Records; a fusion between jazz, R&B and funk. Vocally, Smith endows the track with her jazz phrasing while her band mates bring the elements of Latin percussion and funk and jazz infused horn work.

“Smith, like any great jazz singer, also has impeccable phrasing that allows listeners to hear and understand every word.” —- Howard Dukes, Soul Tracks

“Latin and samba rhythms, R&B/soul/funk, bossa-nova grooves and more bring Smith’s colorful version of jazz to life on Sunkissed. The mesmerizing set opens with lead single “Best Friends,”  whose buoyant vibe takes some of the sting out of the fading romance that Smith is singing about...”    --- Gail Mitchell, Billboard
