Bio

Michael J. Smith’s musical journey began at an early age, growing up in a talented household in the east end of Toronto. The home was always filled with music – his father providing a positive influence to Michael and his two brothers who sang, played guitar & harmonized with each other to perfection.

As Michael reached his teens, he taught himself several instruments including piano, guitar & drums until at age 17, he picked up the bass guitar - a decision he has never looked back from.

Making music became his passion and Michael quickly became part of the Toronto music scene, playing bass & providing both lead & background vocals in such Toronto bands as The Blitz, Dee Dee & the Explosives & Current Situation (Winner of the CFNY Casby Award for Best Non-Recording Act). He has shared the stage with such names as Max Webster, Streetheart, The Payolas and UB40.

Michael’s musical influences are as diverse as the city he grew up in. This is reflective in his work as Singer / Songwriter, encompassing natural ability and creative flare. He continues to play bass guitar and sing with the Toronto band “Jukebox Reloaded” in venues across Canada.
