Todd Smith – ‘There’s A Light’ album review

Award-winning vocalist and songwriter Todd Smith briefly steps outside of super-group Selah to release his second full-length solo effort, There’s A Light (buy). Known for being a passionate family man, the cover art alone tips the listener to its personal depth and richness. Smith, father of five girls, harkens to emotions surrounding fatherhood on tracks like “Jesus Is”—written while his own dad was battling Leukemia—and the anthem “Calling All Fathers.” Produced by Ed Cash, the overall timbre of There’s A Light affords Smith more pop sensibilities, but the well-rounded album does a nice job tastefully sprinkling flavors of country and rock—there’s even a duet with Ellie Holcomb on “Right Where I Belong.”
