Published Apr 04, 2012After building a hefty Canadian persona under the name Mayor McCA, C.A. Smith has decided to switch to his birth name from now on.
This spring, Smith will release his debut album under that name. The record is called Someone You Love and will be released on venerable imprint We Are Busy Bodies on May 8.
Album track "You've Got a Lot to Learn" can be heard here, while a music video for "Time" is available below.
