    Take Aim: Amy Sciarretto vs. Zak Smith - Pull up a chair

    New Jersey's own Zak Smith is today's Take Aim opponent. He is from Jersey, so he was not afraid to hop into the Take Aim ring. When you are from Jersey, you are tough by nature. Luckily for us, Z. Smith is from Jer-Z and fun. Jer-Z Strong!

    I'm a singer/songwriter from New Jersey. You can describe my music as Alternative/Americana. I have a stripped down, acoustic type album, out October 7. [Signs of Life - (iTunes link)]

    If you were not doing music, you would be…


    Any non-music hobbies, talents or skills?

    I read a lot of books. I like a lot of old literature. Dostoyevsky is who I'm reading now.

    Pick ONE song one your record and share a writing or recording story. Something intimate, that you haven't told anyone else (or at least a bunch of writers or journalists) and that which puts us in the moment with you. Let's get intimate, shall we?

    'The Universe is Bigger' is my favorite song on the album. It starts out very quiet and small and builds up to this big thing. I remember when I listened to it the first time on headphones, I felt overwhelmed. It felt like I was exorcising some bad or really heavy feeling out of me. At the end of the song is where I can pinpoint it, I really like that ending.

    Finish this sentence: Zak Smith is the artist that…

    ...America loves.

    Listen to Smith's "Raise the Moon" below for an even better taste.

    Are you crushing on New Jersey's own Zak Smith?

    —Amy Sciarretto
