My name is Warren "Addis" Smith,
a native singer-songwriter born and raised in The United
States Virgin Islands. I started my musical career on The
Island of St. John performing thru out the Caribbean. Being
a firm believer that I can be more, I joined My High school
Steel Orchestra and there it all began.
After finding some success in
the Virgin Islands, I moved to the mainland to take my career
to the next level and beyond by joining The New Horizons
Band / Hot Like Fire. As a solo artist, I shared the stage
with major bands and artists like The Harlem Pop Ensemble,
New York Multi Cultural Festival, The Mighty Sparrow, Berkley
Music Ensemble, Mutabaruka, Jimmy Cliff, Burning Spear,
Toots, Ziggy and Stephen Marley, Andrew Tosh, Black Uhuru,
Junior Reed and many other artists throughout my career.
When not on stage performing,
I am a Host / Co-Host for some of the area's biggest and
greatest events: The Charlemont Reggae Festival, The Hartford
Jerk Festival, The River Front Music Festival, and Stage
Manager for The Ives Concert Park Westside Reggae Festival.
Still having the desire, ambition
and need to reach higher, The Addis Revolution was formed
in the spring of 2012. This band project was a result from
acollaboration found on my third solo album 'No Compromise.'
The album gained great reviews upon its release and also
garnered three Grammy Award Ballot considerations during
Addis Revolution's music is
a blend of reggae and fusion. The band labels their style
as a newer version of reggae fusion. My many years in this
music industry, those experiences have helped me craft the
band's musical direction.
In 2013, The Addis Revolution
joined up with V3 Music Productions, which released with
Addis Revolution's 'People of the World'" single. Its success
helped The Addis Revolution gain an artist of the week spot
in The Independent Music Show Magazine Issue 07 / March
2015. This single was also featured around the world with
major plays in Jamaica and Canada. The follow-up single
'Beautiful Thing' was then released in late 2015.
In early 2016, The Addis Revolution
signed with the award-winning music firm Big Noise. Big
Noise is a music firm that helps artists advance in their
career and development. They have worked with Christina
Aguilera, The Beach Boys, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Chicago,
Katharine McPhee, Dionne Warwick, plus many more major and
independent artists, and now with The Addis Revolution.
The album entitled 'The Great
Escape EP' was released nationally in January 2017. It features
the 'People of the World' and 'Beautiful Thing' radio singles
along with other new music from the band. With the help
of Big Noise, this new album has helped The Addis Revolution
garner three more Grammy Award Ballot considerations in
these two categories: Best Pop Duo/Group Performance for
"Good Love" and "People of the World," and Best Pop Vocal
Album for "The Great Escape EP."
