"Walking Wounded" March 2006



In a world that is quickly being re-saturated by “American Idols,” SMFS is a refreshing getaway back to the pure, raw, emotion that every human being can relate with. The boys of SMFS approach their music with a blue-collar attitude, combining thick guitar riffs and melodic harmonies to create an in your face assault of music that pours straight from their souls.

So much for Simple was formed in the summer of 2002 by a few friends from a former band, Aegri-Somnia, that fell apart due to the nature of the industry and the duties of everyday life contradicting each other.

This time around was simple though, no pun intended; just a few friends, music, some laughs, and no pressure to do anything more. Well, within a year the passion for music was quickly regenerated throughout the group. Current members Joe Gyomory (guitars,) Brian Maynard (vocals,) and Joey Stewart (drums) set out on a mission to find the two missing pieces of the puzzle that would complete this quintet; someone with as much drive and ability that they themselves possessed.

In March and May of 2005 that is exactly what they found. With the addition of Jeff Haight (guitars) and Korey Pickett (bass) SMFS hit the studio in a full sprint to lay down their 12 track debut album “Walking Wounded.”

The release of “Walking Wounded,” in March of ’06, was highly anticipated and greeted by a sell-out crowd at The Machine Shop, one of Michigan’s premier rock and roll concert lounges. With the buzz that has been created by this freshman release, the summer of 2006 is gearing up to be an exponential year of growth for SMFS.

SMFS has been built from a few friends to a family that grows stronger every minute, of every day, with every person they come in contact with; and though there is no telling what the future holds for SMFS, one thing is for sure, when you love something this much there’s no such thing as simple....
