About Me

Currently in California floating around and making my way to Los Angeles until I have enough saved up for my own place. Until then, I'm living in my car and being open to wherever the love and positivity lead me!

I'm a non smoker, no drinking, no caffeine (for the most part), and no drugs other than the occasional joint. My body is a temple and I like keeping it that way!

American vagabond folk musician exploring the world through music. Forty eight countries so far! Here's my website with more info: http://themusicofbriansmith.com

Also, here's a blog post that Couchsurfing wrote about me, which I think is pretty cool: http://www.couchsurfing.org/news/community/coming-to-europe-the-best-new-folk-music-you-havent-heard-yet
- Ah! It's come to my attention that Couchsurfing redesigned their website and took away the blog they used to operate. Shame!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I travel around and and exchange conversation from places with other people as a means to better understand the world we live in and when I have a home, sometimes I host too.
