Born and raised in the Motor City, and moving to the Athens of America while he was still a young man, Smitty has relentlessly pursued his desire to create music and art from the very start. With a long history of collaboration with many of Detroit’s and Boston’s best musicians and artists (Figures On A Beach, Chainsuck, L-Seven and The Blind), this is Smitty’s very first foray into fronting his own project.
“I am a storyteller at heart. These songs are where prose crosses into verse. They all have an element of my own life story subtly woven into them. Part real, part fiction. Part hubris, part humility. All Smitt E. Smitty. The old saying “It’s never too late” is in full play. Creating music and art is a love and passion one should do over the span of their entire life. I will continue to create for as long as humanly possible. To paraphrase Andy Warhol, “While everyone is trying to figure out if they like or dislike your work… Make more!””
Ever the provocateur, this collection of eclectic songs represents the creative mind of a lifelong absurdist thinker. Literal and abstract. Precise and loose. Subtle and serious. After everything is said and done, Smitt E. Smitty is just a modern guy.
Smitt E. Smitty is set to bring his incredible sound and raw energy to the ONCE Ballroom on Saturday, June 30th, 2018.
