Cat Rose Smith “Tough Luck” – if it wasn’t for bad luck….

Despite mention of cards and dice rolling, today’s song from Cat Roe Smith is a far cry from the last time we featured her – the gaming described here is ostensiably a tale of an 1850’s gold miner who has been chasing a dream of striking it rich—a dream which has never come to fruition.  However, as Cat explains “It’s about my own struggles as an artist—I’ve been working hard for years, but it’s been a long road to success.  The song has a nostalgic, rootsy feel that will resonate with listeners who have ever felt like they’ve been dealt a tough break.

Having grown up in the redwoods of Northern California Cat Rose Smith is now based in London and forging herr way as an americana singer-songwriter, she is also a member of Loud LDN, a collective of female and nonbinary artists in London which has been featured on radio shows and at festivals all across the UK.

Sure, I could climb high in a tree, or go to Skye on my holiday. I could be happy. All I really want is the excitement of first hearing The Byrds, the amazement of decades of Dylan's music, or the thrill of seeing a band like The Long Ryders live. That's not much to ask, is it?
