Eddy Smith and the 507

Captivating audiences with his unique, husky voice and tasteful piano accompaniment, Eddy Smith has been making his mark on the UK’s growing Americana scene and is widely recognised as one of the major male vocalists on the Country Soul and Blues circuit.

Time & Date

14 Sept 2024, 19:30

FortyFive Vinyl Café, 29 Micklegate, York, UK


Eddy's infectious melodies and soulful song-writing has drawn comparisons to the likes of Joe Cocker, JJ Grey, Marcus King and Bob Seger to name but a few.

Backed by his long-time friends, they form the multinational five-piece, Eddy Smith & The 507. Their music, engulfed by rich vocal harmonies and gospel-like organ is reminiscent of a sound from way before their time. With an irresistible blend of various Americana styles, such as Blues, Soul, Country and Rock, the quintet take a leaf from the books of Nathaniel Rateliff, The Rolling Stones, The Eagles and countless other pioneers of their Genres.

Deemed festival favourites since appearing on some of the UK's most prestigious stages, including The Isle of Wight Festival, Black Deer, The Long Road, The Americana UK Festival, Cambridge Folk, The British Country Music Festival and more, along with prestigious support slots such as opening for George Thorogood & The Destroyers at Birmingham Symphony Hall, the band have gained recognition as 'ones to watch' on the UK Roots scene. Having sold out their debut album launch in London, along with international radio play and TV features, the band are well and truly on their way towards a bright future.
