For decades Smittyberg has been creating, playing and singing original music. When you listen to Smittyberg you can hear the melodic and rhythmic sounds made by a six and twelve stringed guitars with background of all other instruments. Their blending of hard and grainy with soft and smooth melodic voices comes through on every single song. Smittyberg’s heart felt lyrics adds the passion and soul which is missing in today’s music. This group sounds powerful and utilizes their different guitar playing styles and voices to compliment one another.
Both guys growing up in Texas helps to solidify their love for very balanced and harmonic Country Rock with driving edges.
Mark playing drums in band to band in the late 60’s and moves into electric guitar playing during the heavy Rock n Roll years giving him a strong back ground in cover material. Because of his strong desire to create songs, sing and play he chose to move more into the six and twelve string acoustic guitar. His soft, poetic voice soothes the soul with beautiful harmonic melodies which you will hear throughout all tunes.
Literally driven by his Dad a professional musician David played country western and folk tunes from the age of 7 at small Texas gatherings, half way houses, old folk’s homes and the local bars. Playing his guitar David’s love for creating songs with unique lyrics instead of playing other peoples music kept him from being real involved in the local rock n roll band scene. Although his electric guitar playing days we’re short he did play with BB King and Leon Russell for a varied amount of time. His rough and tumbled rhythm playing with off brand like finger pickin compliments Marks twelve stringed guitar action. David’s hard and grainier voice projecting harmonic, passionate and heart felt lyrics combined with Marks softer, soothing and melodic voice will give the listener a realness in music that only Smittyberg can create. You will find that each song has character and non too alike from foot-tapping with a powerful beat to soft swaying melody’s we know you will love at home or in the car.
For years folks throughout Texas, Louisiana, and Colorado have been listening to the live performances of Smittyberg sounds in their local venues and bars. Now with their first released cd and more to come just Sit back, Relax and Enjoy the Music and be sure to Share it with your friends.
Thanks so Much
