Spirit – Songs of Inspiration features 10 of Maureen Smith’s original compositions and one cover song entitled “Air That I Breathe” written by Albert Hammond & Michael Hazelworth. The disc spans such genres as pop, country, top 40 and rock, all while teaching life lessons, empowering your spirit and healing the mind. Maureen’s lyrics focus mainly on space and religion with common references to the sun, the moon & stars as well as angels & healing light. Maureen’s music can be compared to the sounds of such performers as Loretta Lynn, Jody Miller, The Dixie Chicks and Sara Evans. We are blessed to have such an inspirational, confident and motivated female musician in this world, it’s too bad that so many other artists haven’t yet found themselves in such a way as that of Maureen Smith.
