CWMA Showcase: Cory Mon & Starlight Gospel, Samuel Smith Band, King Niko

This City Weekly Music Awards showcase features bands ranging from rootsy to bluesy to poppy, all of them pleasing to the ear. Cory Mon & the Starlight Gospel have a new album, Turncoats, arriving this spring, and it’s a big step forward for the Orem-based roots-rock crew. The Samuel Smith Band is relatively new to the scene, but they’ve been gigging hard all over the Wasatch Front for the past year or so, bringing their blues-tinged rock to the people whenever possible; they’re in the process of putting together their debut. And King Niko’s French Accent EP, released in 2010, offers a glammy glimpse into the crew dedicated to “making girls dance” at all costs, a strategy that’s garnered them a fervent following of female fans.
