The sophomore single “Trade It In” quickly received support from 6Music, Passport Approved, TalkRadio, BBC Introducing, VibeFM, JackFM and BBC London, Oxford, Kent and Berkshire, BBC Radio 1/2, featured on Communion Presents with Max Tappuni on Radio X, Asia Pop 40 and a number of tastemaker Alternative stations in the states. Waiting For Smith’s music was selected for the September playlist at Caff&ecuate; Nero, a chain of over 700 coffee shops around the world. In October, WFS recorded an EP in Nashville with British–born producer, songwriter and artist Lee Horrocks (Cuff, Yohanna, Kate Earl, Brie Larson) and made a U.S. live debut at Madame Siam in Hollywood.
