ASU 365 Community Union Concert Series presents Daniel “D Smoke” Farris to ASU Sun Devil Stadium on November 3, 2021. Hailing from Inglewood, California, Smoke personifies the city’s potent cultural duality: nurtured by the boulevards, and natured by a family’s legacy in Gospel music. Smoke dove fingers-first into classical piano at the age of six, honing his talents in the church, and eventually lending vocals to the late Michael Jackson. Focusing on the creative arts helped him to circumvent the throes of violence present on his doorstep, and propel himself into the classrooms of UCLA. During his matriculation, D Smoke was a beacon of light for his city, becoming a voice for the voiceless, using language, culture, and music as tools to bridge institutionalized gaps and spread the gospel of a united, Los Angeles culture.
