‘FRIDAY-EVE LIVE’ Features The UK’s ‘Waiting for Smith’ on AUGUST 26 – A VIRTUAL MUSICAL SHOWCASE!

Friday-Eve Live features Waiting for Smith
We’re big fans of Harry Lloyd, a.k.a., ‘Waiting for Smith’ (no direct relation confirmed yet). We love the upbeat vibe of his song, ‘Long Life.’ Here’s a taste of the lyrics, “Thinking about what you said the other day, ‘The way I act the things I do, how I behave, Would I be here if you hadn’t walked my way…’ Now hit play for the full story!

Our August 26, Prescription’s ‘Friday-Eve Live’ showcase bridges The Pond to bring you the UK’s ‘Waiting for Smith’ from his home studio. Formerly a ski instructor in the French Alps, Harry Lloyd, a.k.a. ‘Waiting for Smith’ broke his back in two places during avalanche training. Wondering whether he’d survive in the helicopter on the way to the hospital, Lloyd had an epiphany that he should dedicate his life to music if he were ok. After spending a year in bed recuperating and learning to play guitar, he formed Waiting For Smith, named after endlessly waiting for their original drummer Smith, who continually failed to show up.

Fascinated by change, Lloyd’s music is inspired by the ability we all have to evolve ourselves for the better. He shares, “I’m also a hopeless romantic, so a lot of my songs focus on the different angles on love.” The musician confides in how music is like a free form of therapy and hopes to bring a similar liberating feeling of comfort and emotion to make listeners smile and sometimes cry.

Waiting For Smith has seen success garnering over 414K streams on Spotify, 100K YouTube views, 20K Facebook followers, and almost 40K Shazams – as well as landing radio play on more than 180 stations around the world. With features in British GQ, Rolling Stone India, MTV Germany, Clash Magazine, Earmilk, and Holland’s JFK Magazine, Waiting For Smith’s mission is to engulf the world with unforgettable melodies spreading a much-needed message of positivity.
