    “Sometimes I look at the world in a darker way,” says Marc Scibilia, “but when I hear a melody, when a lyric comes to me, I feel like things are going to be OK.”

    While the sounds and styles of the eleven songs on Scibilia’s debut album, Out of Style, span a broad spectrum—from singer-­‐songwriter narratives to dance beats, drawing on folk, pop, and rock along the way—this hard-­‐fought but positive spirit never wavers. Produced by critically acclaimed artist and hitmaker Butch Walker (Pink, Fall Out Boy, Taylor Swift, Keith Urban), and one of the first releases on the new IRS Nashville imprint of Capitol Records, Scibilia’s LP marks the arrival of a major new talent.

    Canaan Smith
    Canaan Smith

    Ask anyone what makes country music unique, and they’ll likely answer it’s the storytelling. For generations country artists have illuminated the human condition in songs that share life’s tragedies and triumphs while exploring love, loss and the full range of life experiences. It’s a noble calling and one that Canaan Smith passionately embraces on his Mercury Nashville debut album Bronco. As a result, listeners are passionately embracing Canaan’s talent.

    Rolling Stone raves, “if you haven’t heard of Canaan Smith yet, chances are you will be hearing quite a bit of him…overall, we feel the singer-songwriter is one of the sharper artists to keep an eye on.” With wisdom beyond his young years, Smith has emerged as one of Nashville’s most compelling storytellers. Whether painting a steamy portrait of a burgeoning relationship in the hit single “Love You Like That” or honoring the memory of his brother in the powerful title track, Smith knows how to draw listeners into his world.
