Smith Curry


Whether you know me

from the dozens of country artists I've worked with, the radio hits I've played on, or from crazy world tours like Kid Rock, there's something here for everyone. I've recently added tons of new stuff including a bunch of new photos, videos and mp3's, as well as a news blog and a "Hire Me" page where you can find out more about the services I offer: remote recording, via the internet, and also hiring me as producer for your music. Come back often, and feel free to drop me a line and let me know what you think! Smith

"I don't know anything about music. In my line you don't have to."-- Elvis Presley

"Hell is full of musical amateurs."--George Bernard Shaw

"After silence, that which comes nearest to expressing the inexpressible is music."--Aldous Huxley

"Talking about music is like dancing about architecture."-- Steve Martin

"The music business is a cruel and shallow money trench, a long plastic hallway where thieves and pimps run free, and good men die like dogs. There's also a negative side. " -- Hunter S. Thompson






The past twenty years have provided a diverse list of accomplishments.
I have toured with acts ranging from uber-star Kid Rock to British synth/pop stars Erasure.

I have played major-label master sessions for legendary producers like Paul Worley, James Stroud, Don Cook, Blake Chancey, Kyle Lehning, Chuck Howard, and Ron Chancey.

My compositional talents can be heard alongside Jerry Douglas's and Ricky Skaggs's in the score for the HBO movie "The Grave", and on his upcoming solo record “American Idle”.
