Smooth Hound Smith has been making their mark on the music scene over the past 6 years. On Tuesday, April 24th, they will be taking over First Avenue 7th Street Entry to anchor on the fast track of their success. Smooth Hound Smith is comprised of singer/multi-instrumentalist Zack Smith and vocalist/percussionist Catie Doyle. Together they fuse their talents utilizing kick drums, tambourines, wailing harmonicas and soaring harmonies to produce a sound that brings a contemporary flair to the familiar and nostalgic sounds of old school rock n’ roll, blues and soul.
The duo played their first gig together just more than a year ago in early 2012, and the electric chemistry between the two musicians was palpable and instantaneous. In the months since Smooth Hound Smith has set their pace at ‘full throttle’ and haven’t let up on the gas since. In the short period of time that they have been playing together, the duo has played nearly 200 shows, helmed a self-booked national tour that spanned seven weeks and covered over 8,500 miles, spreading their music across the country to all who care to listen. While traveling and playing nonstop, they also found time to write, record and release their recent album ‘Jam in the Van – Smooth Hound Smith’ which is a live session recording captured in Los Angeles, CA.
