Six String Concerts is proud to present Smooth Hound Smith in concert at Natalie’s. SHS is a foot stompin' American roots and rock band founded by Zack Smith (guitars/vocals/foot drums/harmonicas/banjo) and Caitlin Doyle-Smith (vocals/percussion). Established in 2012, and based in East Nashville, TN, they record and perform a varied and unique style of folky, garage-infused rhythm & blues. Using primal foot percussion, complex, fuzzed-out, finger-picked guitar patterns, warbled harmonicas, tasty harmonies and syncopated tambourine, they are able to create something rugged and visceral: a modern interpretation of early blues, soul, and rock 'n' roll music that harkens back to the traditions of hazy front porch folk songs as well as raucous back-alley juke joints.
In addition to their own headlining shows, SHS have toured as support for bands such as the Dixie Chicks (25 dates in the US and Canada in 2016/2017), The Record Company, The Secret Sisters, Lindi Ortega, Anders Osborne, and Jamestown Revival. They were also selected over thousands of other bands to perform at the 2015 Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival, and their music has been featured on CMT’s Nashville, MTV’s The Real World and the Esquire Network.
Founded in 1988, Six String Concerts is an all-volunteer, non-profit organization whose mission is to present emerging and established national and regional singer-songwriters who are making a living writing and performing their own original music.
