"Parker Smith & the Bandwith do woodsy, earnest singer-songwriter fare cautiously infused with soul, bluegrass, gospel and Southern rock elements."

Biography

Parker Smith and the Bandwith landed their first gig in September 2010 and fans immediately took a liking to their unique sound. Musical influences range from Taj Mahal to Talking Heads, but the band members attempt to steer clear of staying put in one genre. They stress their passion about playing ‘real music’ (no computers allowed on stage), and fans appreciate the originality and roots-oriented sound. As one fan put it, “The groovy songs get your feet thumping and the slower songs reel you in giving you a chance to feel something, more than what can be said of many local acts these days.” Storytelling lyrics and wise tales accompany timeless melodies and unique arrangements with their 4-piece instrumentation of guitar, sax, bass and drums.

The band released their first album "Garden Hills" in June 2011, and continues to play around the Southeast. They look forward to their upcoming shows as well as continuing to expand their fan base throughout the East Coast.
