Alarm For War
Hard, funky, loud, fast seems to be the rule among the young today and it is the uniqueness of Smitty's style that just happens to be the key that fits this lock. Born in South Dakota (of all places) his musical influences range from Metal Church, Jane's addiction, TNT to The Grand Master Flash and The Furious Five.
At a young age Smitty always had a huge desire to play the drums and after working at a local gas station for a year he saved his money to purchase a drum kit: A dream realized. The rest is history!
Touring with bands from Louisiana to Colorado, from Florida to Minnesota and from Virginia to North and South Dakota Smitty has pretty much rocked this nation. Totaling 37 states.
