Smile Sweet Face features 10 songs recorded with Chris Fogal at Black in Bluhm Studios. Most of the tracks feature stripped down arrangements mostly with Chad on vocals and acoustic guitar. Rick Stef (of Lucero) came in and recorded Accordion on 3 tracks. The songwriting finds Chad picking up where tracks like Tobacco Fields and Death of the Life of the Party left off from Drag the River s You Can t Live This Way . Fans of Chad Price s songwriting are in for an absolute treat. Chad Price for over the past 10 years has been playing with Jon Snodgrass in the Suburban Home act, Drag the River, a band they both started when Chad wasn t on tour with his other band at the time, All. Although Drag the River has suffered a few hiccups through the years, both Chad and Jon are fully committed to keeping Drag the River alive and kicking. Drag the River continue to play shows and record new albums even though both Chad and Jon have been putting focus on their solo recordings and shows.
