Jeffrey T Smith Music

Americana Blues/Folk Rocker
Washington, DC

With inspiration and influences from early classic country, blues and pop, and from his beginnings in Huntington West Virginia. Jeff Smith counts JJ Cale, Randy Newman, Ray Davies, John Lee Hooker and many other blues folks and local artists as spiritual mentors. Jeff’s southern drawl slides in and around his guitar playing that is a combination of fingerpicking, flat pick strumming and banjo frailing. He tells elongated and elliptical stories about the songs, their characters, his family and his life and how they are all connected. Smith says “on a good night the stories and songs ride on top of a funky kind of country blues pop stomp”. In 1996 LA's Acetate Records released "The Human Wilderness" which featured Jeff's songs, production, performances by John Jennings, Jon Carroll, Robbie Magruder, Rico Petrucelli and was mixed by Jeff Juliano. Pit Stop Magazine said of the album "heartfelt songs about life in small town USA are true masterpieces of Americana". One of the songs "Bad News" was placed in a film that helped fuel the next collection "A Little Romance". Jeff has worked with Nashville publishers Bug Music, Freedom Hill and Bluewater Music and has had cuts on local and regional independent albums. Since 2010, Jeff has been working with music publishers, Heavy Hitters Music Group, getting his music placed on national television broadcasts such as The Young and Restless, Army Wives and television commercials in Europe. Jeff performs as a solo performer and with his band, The Human Wilderness, in concert halls, night clubs and house concerts.
