As a young football prodigy, Reuben Vaun Smith was signed to the Leeds United youth team as a rising talent. By 16 he'd been spotted and signed by Sevilla in Spain, and a professional sports career beckoned. But the dream was over before it really began. At 18 years old, he suffered a life-changing knee injury, catastrophically stopping his career in its tracks for good. With no back-up plan, Smith moved back to Yorkshire and contemplated what to do next.

Not long after a life-changing knee injury ended his professional football career, Reuben Vaun Smith's grandfather bought him a MIDI keyboard - and despite never having had a music lesson or touched a keyboard in his life, Smith retreated to the shed at the end of his garden and started to teach himself music production.

For a solid year, Smith spent every day in his studio at the end of the garden, and twiddled, dabbled, fiddled, experimented, explored, and delved into music.

Smith’s music is imbued with a sunny approach, despite the sometimes grey and wet nature of winter living in the North of England. It is the sound of a young musician that refused to lie down and give up on his passions: when one door closed another one opened.
