Born: 1965 Primary Instrument: Bass, electric
Howdy! I’m bassist and composer SmittyG from Texarkana. I started playing bass in 1983 after trying several other instruments and never getting a real attachment. I joined my first band, Deacon Dark, in 2003 and have played with several bands, mostly blues and classic rock, since that time. In 2006, I started up Narada Weeps as a project to explore my loop based ambient jazz and then, in 2009, started The SmittyG Experience to try some ideas with a jam band approach.
Currently, I'm working on SmittyG on Bass as a solo bassist project using loops and delays to bring my ambient and jazz compositions to the stage. I hope to get back to recording and release something next year.
