Fred D Smith, you could say music is in his blood. Four generations of musicians, who share first and last names. Fred was influenced at a young age by his dad, a multi-talented musician that played guitar, bass, mandolin and tenor banjo. Fred started playing guitar and writing songs at the age of fifteen,and soon was performing in coffeehouses, churches, pubs and festivals in the southern Ontario area. He has also perfomed at "Hamilton Music Scene" events and at HMS award winning Beatle tribute shows. Fred has recently started recording his debut cd, "Sky Blue Eyes" with Christopher Clause of Cloverhill Studios and has his first track,"Factory Blues" completed. Fred also recorded three gospel tunes, that were produced by Dan Aiken of "Junkhouse" fame at his "Catherine North Studio. Raised in the small town of Winona, Ont., Fred's songwriting style is a draw back to the all night jam sessions his dad would have in the living room. When you mix oldtime country & western, rockabilly, 60's rock, blues, gospel and folk, you get what Fred likes to call "FOLKADELIC".
