Brian Smith / Bio

Well equipped drummer with 30+ years experience available for band needing full time drummer or just occasional fill in work. I have a degree (American Univ 1987) and experience in recording engineering (Omega Recording 1985 - 1993) and also in marketing and running successful small business enterprises (ClearSonic Mfg). Historically, my main influences have been up-tempo mod/alt type bands like Foo Fighters, Green Day, Velvet Revolver, Judas Priest, Todd Rundgren, American HiFi, Pat Travers, Simple Plan, Jimmy Eat World, Sugar Ray, Hoobastank, etc. But I wouldn't mind easing up on the tempo and sound from time to time and playing more folk, funk and whatever. I'm pretty open minded about trying different styles of music but I'm all about dynamics, melody, getting the right groove and spending the time needed to get the song and vocals right. I'm hoping for a schedule that would include 4-8 practices and one or two well-planned and marketed gigs per month. I'm not looking to conquer the world. Western NC with an occasional 100 mile road trip would be great. I'm based just outside Asheville and have secure rehearsal and recording space complete with the quality equipment needed to rehearse a band and create quality demos. I'll do covers, worthy originals or both. Please, no big hair 80's rock, death metal (although pop metal like Judas Priest would be great!), chain-smokers, hard drugs, or screaming. I'm looking for hummable melodies, great hooks, consistent attendance at rehearsals and players with common sense that want to have fun playing great music. Let's have fun and make beautiful sounds together!
