    Smooth Hound Smith

    Americana

    Smooth Hound Smith is a foot stompin' American roots duo comprised of "one-man-band" Zack Smith (guitars/vocals/foot drums/harmonicas/banjo) and Caitlin Doyle (vocals/percussion).  Established in 2012, and currently based in East Nashville, TN, they record and perform a varied and unique style of folky, garage-infused rhythm & blues. Using primal foot percussion, complex, fuzzed-out, finger-picked guitar patterns, warbled harmonicas, tasty harmonies and A LOT of tambourine, they are able to create something rugged and visceral- a modern interpretation of early blues, soul, and rock 'n' roll music that harkens back to the traditions of hazy front porch folk songs as well as raucous back-alley juke joints.
      The duo has traveled over 80,000 road miles, playing over 500 shows in over 30 states in the last two-and-a-half years.  They've shared the stage with artists such as Justin Townes Earle, Robert Earl Keen, Nikki Bluhm & The Gramblers, The David Mayfield Parade, Matthew Perryman Jones, Charlie Parr, Possessed By Paul James, Shawn Mullins, and more.  Their self-titled debut album received "top adds" on Americana Radio in early 2014, as well as garnered attention from media outlets such as Nashville's independent radio, WRLT Lightning 100, and publications like American Songwriter andRELIX Magazine.  In addition, the music of Smooth Hound Smith has been featured onMTV's The Real World as well as the Esquire Network. 
      Most recently they were named as a finalist in the 2015 Durango Boots Sole Performer Contest.  They were also selected over thousands of other bands to perform at the 2015 Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival in Manchester, TN, headlined by Billy JoelMumford & SonsBen Harper & The Innocent Criminals, and more.
      Smooth Hound Smith's second full-length album is due out in the summer of 2015, and they will be touring heavily in support of it for the foreseeable future.

    Folk Rock

    You can call Great Peacock a folk band... but don’t expect them to make music for campfires or square dances. Raised in the Deep South and headquartered in Nashville, they’re a group of red-blooded country boys who aren’t afraid of the big city. Case in point: Making Ghosts -- the duo’s harmony-heavy, guitar-driven debut album -- whose 11 songs find the middle ground between rootsy, down-home Americana and super-sized arena pop/rock. 

    “To us, it’s just pop music with organic acoustic instruments,” says Andrew Nelson, who shares lead vocals and guitar duties with co-founder Blount Floyd. “The album has some fiddle, some pedal steel and a whole lot of acoustic guitar, which sounds like the traditional setup for a country band. But this isn’t a country record. It’s not really a folk record, either. It’s a pop/record... with folk tendencies.” 

    Nelson and Floyd first crossed paths in their early 20s, bonding instantly over a shared love of cheap beer and good Southern music. After logging several years together in a loud, Tennessee-based rock band, they split off to form their own project, swapping out the amplified swagger of their previous group for a straightforward sound anchored by acoustic guitars, anthemic melodies and two intertwined voices. Like an old-school harmony duo retuned for a new generation, they started off with a handful of classic influences -- the country croon of George Jones, the working class rock & roll of Bruce Springsteen, the heartland hum of Tom Petty -- and expanded their sound from there, turning Great Peacock into the sort of band that’s simultaneously rooted in tradition and headed toward new territory.

    The music on Making Ghosts reflects Great Peacock’s ambition. Songs like “Tennessee” are swooning, sweeping tributes to the band’s homeland, while “Take Me To The Mountain” pushes the band toward anthemic territory, fueled by super-sized drums and a radio-ready melody. On “Arms,” the guys jump between haunting verses and big, Technicolor choruses, capping everything off with a screeching guitar solo. These peacocks know how to strut their stuff. 

    What’s in a name, by the way? In Great Peacock’s case, quite a bit.   

    “We initially thought it was just a funny name for a band,” Nelson admits, “but through the evolution of everything we’ve done, we’ve always been big and colorful. That’s why Blount jumps around onstage. That’s why I wear a suit jacket embroidered with feathers, which is basically a poor man’s nudie suit. We’ve embraced the image of the big peacock feathers, and we want to entertain you. We look that way, we think that way, and we sound that way, too.”
