Watch & Listen
A solo artist, with a band, based out of northern New Jersey. He released his first EP in the summer of 2011 and is working on a new album that will be released in 2013. With the new album coming, you are going to start seeing a lot more of M.R.Smith on the east coast and beyond! Check out some of his tunes and tour dates.
Working through the KC bar and club scene since 2009, Appropriate Grammar takes singer Nick McKenna's established folk sound to a new level, electrifying the sound on the backbone of powerful punk-driven drumming, fuzzed out guitar, and Claire Adams' vocal harmonies. Steve Gardels' heavy metal rhythm roots and Alex Dunsford's blues influenced guitar riffs fill out the sound. Their first EP "We Learned It From A Place" moves from crunchy indie rock to whiskey drenched bad-luck americana, drawing on years of writing and gigging. The band is also preparing for a second trip to Austin, TX for SXSW, with the Mid-Coast Takeover crew
