"Really digging Smooth Hound Smith's album. Check it out."
Says No Depression: "In the case of Smooth Hound Smith, two is all that’s needed to brew a raucous clash of backwoods folk, raw blues, and underground rock." Smooth Hound Smith is the foot-stompin’ American roots duo 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, 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 harks back to the traditions of hazy front porch folk songs as well as raucous back-alley juke joints. They’ve shared the stage with artists such as Justin Townes Earle, Robert Earl Keen, Nicki Bluhm & The Gramblers, The David Mayfield Parade, Matthew Perryman Jones, Charlie Parr, Possessed By Paul James, Shawn Mullins, and more. They're coming to Michigan with music from their as-yet-untitled but much-awaited third album. Ann Arbor singer-songwriter Olivia Millerschin is special guest.
