Caitlin Doyle and Zack Smith met in LA and established Smooth Hound Smith in 2012. After releasing their self-titled debut album in 2013, they've since settled in Nashville, but have spent most of their time touring or recording. They were chosen from thousands of bands to perform at the 2015 Bonnaroo Festival.
Zack started out as a one man band, but he quickly realized how much Caitlin added to the music, "She has such a rare and valuable skill set; she conceptualized a great deal of the harmonies, and we did the arrangements together."
Smooth Hound Smith is one of those bands that's difficult to describe due to their wide array of sounds. The softer songs from their first album, such as "Crazy Over You" and "California Sway" carry a romantic rhythm supported by the gentle picking of the guitar matched with lyric-driven harmonies. In the more bluesy-rock songs, "30 Days" and "Blue Dress," the foot percussion, harmonica, and grungy guitar induce instant dancing. They will share some of their latest tunes from Sweet Tennessee Honey at the show tonight starting at 9, don't miss the fun!
