Alice Smith Featured on HBO Entourage

Alice Smith received some major love on Sunday night when her song "Dream" was featured during the closing credits of HBO's Entourage. The show is one of my favorite TV series on cable and not because of its amazing story plot. It's primarily because of the superb Jeremy Pives who playes the totally neurotic, over-the top talent agent Ari Gold, one of the most entertaining characters on television.

After my pals of Chester French were featured on Entourage a few weeks back, it was a nice surprise to hear Smith played on the show. "Dream" is an exquisite, theatrical tune that showcases the singer's distinct vocals. Most people will probably label it as neo-soul, but I think the song is lot more unique, sultry and bluesy than that. And make sure to listen to Smith grooving out towards the end of the song.

"Dream" is taken from her debut album "For Lovers, Dreamers & Me" that was released last year and invokes musical memories ranging from the young Diana Ross to the mature Billie Holiday. Sony's Epic Records recognized the singer's talent and will be re-releasing the disc in September. The record is an accomplished effort that deserves a lot more attention. Smith is one of those rare artists who can solely rely on her raw talent as opposed to being dependent on Timabland-inspired big beat productions that are ruling the charts.

I love Entourage. It's my favorite show on TV. I've even started my own Entourage Blog.

I loved the episode of Entourage that this song was on. As soon as Turtle got out of the car, I knew it'd be something really freaky deaky/hysterical. But more importantly, as this song hit my ears, I instantly perked up. I didn't want the credits to end!

Could you imagine if that was your job? Finding songs to end out the show. Notice how every episode ends with a "hot" song?

Loving Entourage and Alice Smith's "Dream."

I was bored last night and watched some old Entourage episodes I have on iTunes and, like a previous writer said, I heard the song of the closing credits and ran them back several times. I then googled the last few words of the song and found Alice Smith. I immediately downloaded her album. Great artist. She's unique and very, very, talented.
