Still working on that hot first release.



Smelter Mountain Boys are a newer bluegrass collaboration in Durango featuring some familiar faces of the area's music scene as well as some brand new ones. Most notably Corey Clark whose voice and songs beckon to bluegrass music origins and roots. After some time with Clinton Gregory Bluegrass Band out of Nashville, TN, Corey Clark moved to Durango, CO and quickly met some local pickers who all saw an opportunity to fill a void of more traditional bluegrass, apart from the progressive sounds so pervasive in Colorado today. Corey plays both guitar and banjo, Steve Labowskie on bass (formerly of the Scrugglers) a Kay bass with this project instead of the tub bass he's mostly known for, Pete Donahue on mandolin was raised on Colorado bluegrass and the festival circuit. Peter draws from many musical genres outside bluegrass, he also shreds electric guitar and co-founded local infamous punk band, Your Bones. Eli Emmitt is the newest member of the band, having grown up in Creted Butte, CO. and learning the family trade of Colorado style bluegrass now resides in Durango and is also elctric and jazz player. Together the boys play an energized, some even say radioactive, traditional style of bluegrass chock full of high lonesome vocals and blistering instrumental breaks steeped in the mountain tradition.
