Hi. Tell us your story in 3 sentences.
My name is Brian Smith. I’m a musician. I’m also a passionate lover.
What is your “home ground” area? Tell us something about it
Portland, Oregon, USA. It rains a lot.
What’s the best live act in your area? Tell us something about it
I’ve been on tour non stop for over two years so I don’t really have an area or rather, I have many areas. From back where I’m from though, Old Age and Globelamp are the greatest.
Which artists have influenced your style & sound, if any?
Any favourite artists?
Old Age and Globelamp
What’s the last live music show you’ve seen?
This is hard to remember since I play around 100-150 shows a year and don’t spend much time going to concerts when I’m not performing them. I played Beglika Fest 2014 in the Rodopi Mountains of Bulgaria this year though and that was a great event. Balkan Khans was the highlight of the whole thing.
Beatles or Rolling Stones?
Tell us something about your best and your worst memory on the road
Best memory was opening for Astro in an amphitheater on a massive hill overlooking all of Santiago, Chile and the surrounding mountains. Worst memory was being chased by a dog off a 4 meter cliff and getting badly injured/smashing my guitar an hour before this. I was still bleeding from my worst memory while experiencing my best one.
What do you think about LiveTrigger?
It’s good. I have recommended it both to friends and strangers.
