In 1995, Smith and his wife were involved in a near-fatal car accident, and during the weeks of his recovery, he decided to become a professional musician. This inspired him to write the song "August 30". In 1996, the band, now known as Delirious?, became a full-time endeavour. Smith's band, Delirious?, produced some of the most recognised songs in Christian music, including "I Could Sing of Your Love Forever", "History Maker", "My Glorious", "Did You Feel the Mountains Tremble?", "Shout to the North", "Deeper", "Majesty (Here I Am)", and "What a Friend I've Found". The band announced that they would take a break at the end of 2009 to focus on things close to them. Smith said that he wanted to spend time with his family and devote more time to the CompassionArt project. Headed by Smith and his wife, CompassionArt is an art and International development charity. It released a various artists album in January 2009, with Smith appearing on three tracks. Delirious? later confirmed that they were breaking up permanently after a final concert in November 2009.

In 2012 and 2013, Smith independently released four EPs, titled God's Great Dance Floor: Movements One through Four. Each EP contains new songs, written or co-written by Smith. The title track was co-written with Chris Tomlin, which uses samples from Lionel Richie's 1986 single "Dancing on the Ceiling". In 2013 he released his first full albums God's Great Dance Floor Step 01 and God's Great Dance Floor Step 02, each containing the songs from the four EPs, plus new tracks.
