The statewide Arkansas Democrat-Gazette calls The Smittle Band "jazzy
Americana....a smooth, swinging Dan Hicks for NPR listeners." Led by
songwriter and operatically-trained vocalist Stephanie Smittle, the
group's first CD, "Bright Street," came in 2010, and its followup,
"Tales From Tattletown," in late 2012, with Cate Brothers veteran John
Davies producing. TV and radio appearances on the likes of KUAR's "Live
at Laman" series, AETN's "Front Row" series, and Oxford, Miss.'s
syndicated "Thacker Mountain Radio" have solidified the dedicated
fanbase of the group's "truly unusual music" (Nightflying). Ms. Smittle
recently studied in Italy as an Oberlin Conservatory scholar, but her
powerful, "room-filling" (Arkansas Democrat-Gazette) voice can be
surprisingly delicate. With Smittle being equally at home belting out an
aria in any of the Romance languages or a pop tune in Russian -- or a
metal or a rock song, for that matter -- the band truly brings
wide-ranging influences and an international flair to the stage. The
Smittle Band is: Stephanie Smittle on vocals, Wythe Walker on guitar,
Ray Wittenberg on drums and Bill McCumber on bass.
