Smooth Hound Smith
Smooth Hound Smith
Smooth Hound Smith is a foot stompin' American roots duo comprised of "One-Man-Band" Zack Smith (guitars/vocals/foot drums/harmonicas) 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 100,000 road miles, playing over 500 shows in over 30 states in the last two-and-a-half years. Their eponymous debut album garnered attention from media outlets such as Nashville's independent radio, WRLT Lightning 100, as well as publications like American Songwriter and RELIX Magazine. They were also selected over thousands of other bands to perform at the 2015 Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival in Manchester, TN, headlined by Billy Joel, Mumford & Sons, Ben Harper & The Innocent Criminals, and more. In addition, the music of Smooth Hound Smith has been featured on ABC's Nashville, MTV's The Real World, and the Esquire Network.
The Get Ahead
The Get Ahead
The Get Ahead is a five-piece group from Portland, OR that has evolved from retro-soul evangelism to a more mature and distinct identity. Their newest release, Mind is a Mountain, highlights their emotive and gritty roots aesthetic while hinting at soul with simmering grooves, yearning vocals, and purposeful lyrics. Produced by Grammy Award winning artist, Son Little (Mavis Staples, RJD2), the quintet mines an amalgam of classic rock, swampy blues, vintage soul, R&B and gospel in their mission to move people.
