More About Patty Smyth and Scandal

Grammy nominated artist Patty Smyth and Scandal are back on the road and raring to play for fans new and old. Smyth, a New York City native, was 15-years-old when she played her first gig at New York Folk City and spend the next several years honing her craft. While getting started in the industry, she waited tables at a steakhouse too. It was there that one day she answered a ringing payphone and met Zack Smith, who would later ask her to front a band with him called Scandal. The rest is history. The group burst onto the scene in 1982 with a self-titled debut that turned out to be the best-selling EP in Columbia Records history, featuring the hit single, “Goodbye to You.” From “Goodbye to You,” a #1 MTV video, Scandal included the hits “Love’s Got a Line on You” and “Win Some, Lose Some.” The group’s first length album, The Warrior, released in 1984, climbed into the Top 20 on the sales chart, eventually earning RIAA-certified platinum status, with more than a million in sales. For all her 80’s achievements, Smyth’s more impressive successes came in the 90’s. Her 1992 solo album turned out to be career peak. “Sometimes Love Just Ain’t Enough,” a song Patty wrote became Smyth’s biggest hit ever. The song reached #2 on Billboard’s Hot 100 and stayed there for six consecutive weeks, going #1 on the AC chart for four straight weeks, as well as #1 on many other nation charts. The song was also named BMI song of the year. The album earned platinum status, but more impressively, the single earned platinum status, as well, which is something that rarely happens. The album also produced the hits “No Mistakes,” “I Should be Laughing” and “Shine.” With new songs in the can like “Make It Hard” and “End of the Girl,” Patty plans to return to the studio to record the new material. Smyth says: “I don’t play to pre-recorded track or have 15 dancers on-stage. There are no smoke or mirrors. We feel that people are yearning for music that’s real. It’s just these four guys and I, out there seriously kicking some ass and having fun. We’re so tight, if I fell down a flight of stairs, they would follow me and we’d all land on our feet. I don’t have time to think of anything else when I’m performing. For that hour, I can step out of my life. It’s like flying. I feel like I’m at the top of my game, and totally in my element. It’s an unbelievable joy.”
