Matt Smith

Music has always been a big thing in Matt Smith’s life. Originally from Opelika, Alabama, this singer/songwriter began playing music at a young age. He began playing for live audiences in 2004 and his word-of-mouth fan base began to grow throughout the region. While in college Smith played with his band Southern Harmony. What began as a small local college band quickly became a sought-after act with a unique sound and style, blending their improv talents with a wide variety of musical genres.

Southern Harmony’s first E.P. was released online in 2008 and they continued to play until 2010. The intensity and high energy of his performances led to many opportunities for this versatile young musician. Smith has shared the stage with nationally-recognized acts including Paul McDonald, The Grand Magnolias, Hightide Blues, Zac Brown Band, Corey Smith and Adam Hood.

In 2011, Smith spent the summer out west where he played several shows in Colorado. He later moved to Birmingham, Alabama where he joined the band Red Mountain. The Birmingham jam band was highly successful and quickly gained a grassroots following throughout the region. Red Mountain was also featured in Birmingham Metro Magazine as one of the top up and coming bands to watch for. Smith played around the Southeast with Red Mountain until the band went on hiatus in 2013. Since then Smith has performed with Blanton Reed, Riley Green, Michael Warren, Chris Posey and many others.
