Smooth has been into music since a small boy back in Canton, OH where his momma played Blues records and sang along. He found his gift for writing when he was about 9 years old and found that he could also hear the music to set his words to. Not formally trained, Smooth always strives to entertain the people, whether singing the Blues, Gospel, or popular Blues covers.
The Blues2Blues Band is in it's 3rd incarnation, together for 10 years. Ernie the lead guitar player, is reminisent of Jimi Hendrix when he goes off on one of his guitar solos, people stare then clap their appreciation of his virtuosity. Plus Ernie does his fair share of singing backup and takes the lead, singing a few numbers. Richard's bass playing keeps it funky. Our other Richard is the drummer, he keeps it tight and displays great skill in keeping the band together. But it's Smooth that keeps control, from start to finish, making them the band asked for again and again.
