Tuk Smith has released brand new single ‘What Kinda Love’ an instantly infectious anthem that unifies his love of rock, punk and glam into a unique amalgam.
‘What Kinda Love’ is part of a collection of songs that are a testament to the fact that you don’t need to follow trends in order to create art that fosters a connection with your audience.
Tuk flies the flag for the genre in the same way as today’s rock idols have. So it is only fitting he open for some of them, with Tuk Smith & The Restless Hearts supporting Mötley Crüe, Def Leppard and Joan Jett on their upcoming stadium tour.

After cutting his teeth for nine years as the frontman for the Atlanta rock band Biters, Tuk Smith’s solo debut sees him further expanding the reaches of his musical vision into an album that unifies multiple musical styles.
Tuk’s debut album, Lookin’ for Love, Ready for War, showcases the versatility of his songwriting. From instantly infectious anthems to intricately arranged rockers and Americana-tinged ballads the album favours dedication over debauchery.
Produced by the legendary Rob Cavallo (Green Day, Eric Clapton, My Chemical Romance) he explains, “People that really like honest-to-god Rock and Roll – this is the kind of stuff they’ll love.
“If you are a Tom Petty fan or a Bruce Springsteen fan, if you like really great old-fashioned American Rock and Roll then I believe you’ll like Tuk’s music because it’s cut from that same cloth. It’s original and it is it’s own thing, I think he’s the real deal!”
