MitchDiSinga puts his spin on Bill Withers’ You Just Can’t Smile It Away
Growing up, singer MitchDiSinga was inspired from early by rhythm and blues and soul music.
He was a pre-teen, in 1985, when American rhythm and blues singer Bill Withers recorded the song You Just Can’t Smile it Away.
The song is featured on Withers’ final studio album, Watching You, Watching Me, which was released via Columbia Records.
MitchDiSinga recently released a reggae version of You Just Can’t Smile it Away which was produced by US-based Raw Vue Music.
“You Just Can’t Smile It Away is one of my favourite Bill Withers songs. Although it’s not as popular as some of his other songs, such as Lean on Me, Ain’t No Sunshine, and Just the Two of Us, it is a great song. It’s an honour for me to record a reggae version of this song because it was written and originally recorded by a truly iconic artiste,” said MitchDiSinga.
He added, “I believe my version of You Just Can’t Smile It Away will be well-received by music fans all over the world.”
The musical accompaniment for MitchDiSinga’s version of You Just Can’t Smile It Away, was provided by musicians, including Dean Fraser (saxophone), Kirk “Kirkledove” Bennett (drums), Glen Browne (bass), and Mitchum Chin (guitar).
MitchDiSinga is preparing to release his fourth studio album later this year. It will be released by Gargamel Music.
