NEWS: C.A. Smith 'Time' MP3 and Tour Dates

Acclaimed Canadian indie label We Are Busy Bodies is set to release C.A. Smith's brilliant new album on May 8th.  Someone You Love will be his first album release as C.A. Smith. Formerly known as Mayor McCA, the musician, writer, cartoonist, animator, actor and onetime mayoral candidate is set to tour Canada after the release (full list of dates below).  Download 'Time' here and watch the Christopher Mills-directed video below.

Christian Anderson (C.A.) Smith is the Mayor. Or at least he was. Smith has preformed under the moniker Mayor McCA for the past 15 years. Operating as a one-man band he borrowed the term, and half jokingly, referred to himself as “The hardest working man in showbiz”, funny but no less true. It's safe to say that as a vaudeville style act (singing, playing, and tap dancing) he turned a few heads.
The charismatic Smith has gained recognition among his peers as a hard-working talent. That reputation led to opening slots for Feist, Daniel Johnston, Chad VanGaalen, Slow Club, Sarah Harmer, and more.  Beyond his hard work, the real achievement has been the songs and that’s the reason for the new direction Smith has chosen.
