Glenn 'SmittyG' Smith

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.
