Launched earlier this month with an appearance by Kevin Manning, Downingtown-based video series Live at 435 is back with Episode 2.  Ben Smith is a long-time friend of 435 founder / musician Matt Magarahan so it was a no brainer to welcome him into the studio for a few songs.  Smith performed two stripped-down tracks, “I Recognize Your Fist” and “Someone, Somewhere, Sometime,” keeping it simple with just vocals and piano.  Between songs Matt sat down with Ben and talked about clothing choices, reminisced about their early recording days and what’s next for Smith.  Check out the episode below and stay tuned for more from Live at 435.
