Patricia Lee Smith, aka ‘Patti’ Smith (born 30th December, 1946) is a multi-talented performer who is a seasoned poet, visual artist, and singer-songwriter. She was a leading figure of the punk rock movement in New York City in 1975 with her debut album, Horses.

Patti Smith was coined the ‘Godmother of Punk’, a hugely prestigious title, due to her original and unique fusion of genres, combining rock and poetry to create her music. As well as an incredibly fruitful solo career, Smith’s collaboration with Bruce Springsteen on her most widely praised song Because The Night, and gave her huge amounts of exposure and following.

Additionally, Smith has several awards under her belt, as well as being inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2007, and winning the National Book Award in 2010 for her memoir Just Kids. Smith has also been nominated for Grammy Awards throughout her career. Influential for her musical style and poetic abilities, Smith’s lyrics and performances explore controversial topics from AIDS to Green Party ideologies, which has given her much attention. Patti’s band currently consists of Lenny Kaye on guitar, Jay Dee Daugherty playing Drums, and Tony Shanahan on bass and keys, adding great depth to her performances.

With 11 studio albums recorded by Smith over the years, her debut record, Horses, remains the most popular over the years, although Smith is still creating critically acclaimed music today. Several huge artists today such as Courtney Love and Candy Slice claim that their creative inspirations are due to Smith’s musical creations.
