Carlton J. Smith

Carlton J. Smith is a fantastic R&B/Soul entertainer and songwriter very much in the tradition of James Brown, Al Green, The Temptations, etc.  He is a true expert and afficionado of the music genre and era. He has dedicated his life to composing his own music in the tradition of the great Soul/R&B legends and night after night he channels the energy and magic into a memorable performance.  His magnificent stage presence and dynamic performances excite audiences all over the world from the USA, all the way to Europe and Asia. 

When Carlton J. Smith takes the stage he feels responsible for everyone in the audience and he will not stop until he is sure they are all having a good time. When you attend the Carlton J. Smith show he will leave you no choice but to enjoy yourself.

Born and raised in Spanish, Harlem Carlton sopent his formative years at the world famous Apollo theatre in Harlem. There he sat at the feet of the greats and soaked up as much knowledge regarding showmanship as he could.

He witnessed James Brown, Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye, Al Green, Ray Charles, The Temptations and many others at work.

These shows were invaluable to his learning process.

“…even now there are times when I am onstage and I will feel the spirit of Ray Charles or James Brown and I’ll remember something they did that satisfied the audience and I’ll be compelled to repeat it….”.


The Carlton J. Smith show is very uptempo, very high energy, and very audience interactive.
The spontaneity coupled with the overall circus type madness that seems to follow Carlton everywhere he goes all but ensures that no two performances will ever be the same.

He will leave you no choice but to enjoy yourself, so come out and have a good time whenever Carlton is in your town!
