    Promised Land
War Horse came to fruition in 2018 after leaving ten years as a minister, working with several local and prominent musicians, and his brother Ben Smith manning the production booth.
Born out of love, pain, anger, and strength from his last 6 years back in his home of Central Illinois; the songs of War Horse cover Smith's broad musical landscape of Americana. His band brings the songs to life with vivid and virtuosic instrumentation for a uniquely individual live experience. Road tested and played for over a year, many of the tracks on this new effort have been put together in an effortless mix to keep the listener engaged in each story that unfolds. "[Musically] it's a mixture of a lot of things," Smith recently told his hometown newspaper, "It's folk, it's country, it's rock n roll, jazz. I used to be a pastor so there is some gospel influence." Whether he's enriching the spirit or digging into the lessons of a bad relationship, Smith's depth as a songwriter has brought him full circle on an effort that is all his own.
