Momo Smitt - Socially Conscious Lyricism
- My Name is Momo Smitt, I am an independently funded/promoted hip hop artist based in Portland, OR. My music covers a wide range of topics from recovery and personal growth to political and environmental issues. Though much of my music is expressed from a first person perspective of opinions and feelings, I also tend to take a narrative, story-telling approach while detailing my experiences through the role of "observer".
- This website is designed to make the different aspects of my music more individually accessible. For example, if you are dealing with substance abuse issues or are a representative of a facility based in the process of recovery, you can become easily acquainted with my own journey towards clean and sober living, as well as my work in the world of recovery and outreach by visiting the "recovery" tab in the top directory. On the other hand, if you handle booking for a mainstream venue and would like to immediately dive into my more "widely accessible" music, you should explore the "Consciousness" Tab. The same goes for those interested purely in my political and environmental work. If you're throwing a private organic gardening party and need music or are booking a peace festival or political rally, the "Environmental/Political" section will help you decide if my views and delivery will work for your event or your personal listening pleasure.
- Above all, my goal is to express my truths which are often shifting and redefining themselves. As such, the content of my music overlaps and needless to say there are elements of "Consciousness" to be found in the "Recovery" section of this site. My music is comprised of me. My views and experiences through and through. Disregarding "Tabs" and "Sections", my music is expression meant to provoke thought and inspire positive change and awakening. Every day I work towards opening my mind and embracing positive change; my music is a detailed account of my interaction with life.
