Rock star Corey Smith in LR this Sunday, April 17

With seven albums and dozens of sold-out shows now under his belt — including at famed venues such as The Roxy in Atlanta and Georgia Theatre in Athens — Corey Smith brings his popular, unpretentious Americana act with country, rock and blues influences to Revolution Music Room on Sunday, April 17.

Since winning a songwriting contest and releasing his first album, "Undertones," in 2003, Smith has been soaring underneath the radar of the major labels by nursing a loyal fan base all over the South who appreciates his back-to-basics honesty in both his music and his lyrics.

"Drawing heavily from the blues, country and rock traditions of the South, he applies the back-porch twang of an acoustic guitar, a soulful singing voice, and well-crafted lyrics to the task of creating music that is at once distinct and familiar," Jambase.com says.

Tanaia Esaw: America's Next Top Model?

Tanaia Esaw: America's Next Top Model?

By Dawon Johnson (published in The Vision Magazine Spring Issue)

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. - Arkansas has produced two “America’s Next Top Model” winners, and it could be home to a third. Well, if the show is on-air for 10 more years. That’s when Tanaia Esaw, an eight-year-old model from Little Rock, will be eligible for the highly rated reality show.

“I think I’m the best model. When I come out on the stage everybody screams my name,” says Esaw. “I understand when I’m doing good, because people scream out ‘go on girl’ and ‘you better work that stage.’ Modeling makes me feel very happy. It is my life.”

Esaw, a second-grader at Romaine Elementary School, got her start modeling in the summer 2009 at the inaugural Little Rock Fashion Week (LRFW). Since her debut, she has appeared in several fashion shows, a commercial and the Martin Luther King Jr. Marade.
