Biography

At age 12, Dell Smart started singing pop and traditional caribbean music at clubs and parties. When his family moved to L.A., they left him behind in Belize. Although they planned to move him once they could afford to, Dell just couldn't wait. With his brother, he hitchhiked through Mexico on their way to L.A., playing cantinas for food and pesos.
Once in L.A., Dell and his brothers formed "Dell and the Sensations". With the hit song "Tears On My Pillow", they gained recognition on the west coast and put Belize on the musical map. However, love moved Dell to the east coast.

Being musically driven, Dell wasted no time starting a new band: Exit/In. After trying out a number of different people, he finally found a group of musicians who like a challenge. The members of the new band learned the music of Belize and Dell's brothers. As a group, they each bring their own aggressive slant to new compositions.

Dell Smart and Exit/In continue their global reach by keeping their heart open to new musical signs. Their 2006 CD, "Sure 'Ya Right" was the band's first turn in a new direction. From the blues of "Inside a Broken Heart" to the fast paced "Pomona Valley" to the reggae cover of Bob Dylan's "Knockin' On Heavens Door", they showcase their ability to write and perform in a variety of styles.

In 2008 the band expanded with the addition of a horn section to create a powerful and large sound. In 2010 they went back to the studio to record a new album of original music showcasing the new horn section. The album will should be available in summer 2010.
