Over the past ten years, Chill Smith has been writing, recording and performing his music for capacity crowds throughout the state of New Jersey. Appearing at such venues as The Stone Pony, Stanhope House, The Strand Theater, The Asbury, The Saint, Langosta Lounge and Brighten Bar, New Star has shared the stage with Joe Budden, Sage Francis, Pharoahe Monch, Jared Paul, Kosha Dillz, Tsu Surf, Sugar Hill Gang and Nappy Roots.
Chill Smith's self-produced and self-recorded EP is a blend of live instrumentation, sampled synths, and 808 drums. Each song is a raw and unfiltered examination of his experiences dealing with racism and prejudice. The lead single, “Swirl”, convey thoughts on black and white couples, and the struggles that come with those relationships. “I always wanted to talk about interracial dating. There’s a stigma about it, on both ends.”
Recently, Chill Smith along with his rap group, BrainStorm released thier first self-produced and self-titled project, now available for download and streaming.
