Album notes
Personnel includes: Julian Lennon (vocals, acoustic guitar, sitar, keyboards, tambourine, shaker); Mark Spiro, Gemma Hayes (vocals); Robbie Blunt (acoustic & electric guitars, sitar); Justin Clayton, Matt Backer (acoustic & electric guitars); Donal Lunny (bouzouki); Simon Edwards (santoor, bass); Gregory Darling (piano); Bob Rose (keyboards); Manny Elias (drums); Paul Clarvis (tabla, percussion); Steve Sidelnyk (programming).
Has the proverbial high-jump bar been lifted now that there are two Lennon sons with record contracts? Whatever the case may be, Julian's work on his fifth album aspires to a thirty-something maturity (which seems particularly marked alongside the work of half-brother and fellow tradesman in the business Sean). The older Lennon son shows plenty of lingering influence from his dad including a trust in love as an answer to any number of problems ("Believe") and an almost overwhelming self-awareness which renders him both emotionally available and vulnerable.

And while not the out and out rocker that father John was, Julian has inherited his melismatic vocal phrasing and poignant melody writing. With production touches ranging from Beatles and Badfinger through mid-seventies Bowie and on up to kd Lang and Ben Mink's dream-pop of the 1990's, Julian Lennon seems to have found a comfortable place and sound for himself--and it is a world he invites his listeners to inhabit.

Editorial reviews
...a triumph of elegantly baroque pop...SMILE is a heartfelt, expertly crafted collection. With this album, Lennon comes up from the rear in the rock progeny credibility race, streaks past Adam Cohen and Chynna Phillips, and is fast gaining on Jakob Dylan. - Rating: A- Entertainment Weekly

"In the mid 90's I put out some records under the name "the sound of bells". I was also a member of Sunbear. I drifted in production, working with people like Dr Millar, Miriam Ingram, Nick Kelly, Nina Hynes, Sack and the Future Kings of Spain. Became a member of Nina Hynes' touring band for a couple of US tours.

In the US I met Tenspeedracer and decided to join them. This was 2000. We set up a recording studio and writing space on a farm in Wexford and lived there till June 2004. We released 2 albums, 2 EPs and lots of singles from there on Red Flag Records. Playlisted on BBC Radio 1, charted in Ireland etc.

Started work on a solo album in 2002. In June last year Tenspeedracer split up and I moved back to Dublin to finish it. Sent Tom Dunne the demos and he as been very supportive since."
