CPA and singer/songwriter might not seem like two titles that would share space on the same resume. But on Myla Smith’s, they do – right alongside baseball stadium scoreboard operator, Christmas tree farm worker, and show choir choreographer.
And from a very young age that was the case for Myla – save a short stint in Dallas, she spent most of her childhood in a small town north of Memphis called Shake Rag, Tennessee, wearing out two Fisher Price tape recorders with her early compositions. (Although it was in Dallas that Myla picked up her first paying gig as a singer – she overdubbed vocals for the child actors on the TV show “Barney and Friends”. Yes, that Barney.) She moved back to Shake Rag at 13 and started writing and playing the guitar. Myla says she finally got honest with herself that she couldn’t do this job and do music – really, she notes, you couldn’t do this job and do anything – and it was time for a change. She left the firm in 2007 and hasn’t slowed down – musically, at least – since then.So, what is next? Fresh off the release of her newest EP Drugs in October 2012, which climbed all the way up to #1 on Amazon’s Pop Singer/Songwriter Charts, Myla is already hard at work on her next full-length record, due out late Summer 2013.
 
She stops by on Wednesday, April 10, at 7pm EST.
