Greg Smith spent his youth honing his musical skills on the family farm in the hills of Charlemont, Massachusetts before joining his first band at age 12. He played a variety of instruments before settling on the guitar in high school and had been a member of nearly a dozen bands before relocating to Brooklyn, NY in the mid-2000s.  There he formed his dream band Greg Smith & The Broken English, which made NYC venues such as Rockwood Music Hall and the Bowery Electric its home for several years. The band has toured the east coast, played at SXSW, and recorded several albums together, the most recent being “Ramblin’ Road” in 2014. The album chases the spirit of the 70s country and classic rock anthems Smith cut his teeth on in roadhouse bars coming up as a young player – with folk and pop flourishes.  Smith’s songwriting has been recognized several times by the Independent Music Awards earning nominations in the Best Story Song, Best Alt. Country Song, and Best Alt. Country Album categories.  In 2015, Smith and his wife moved from Brooklyn back to the hills of northwestern Massachusetts where he is now spreading his talents among several groups across the state, including The Maverick Street Band (Fitchburg, MA), Lakeside Drive (Franklin County, MA), and The Whiskey Treaty Roadshow, as well as his NY-based band “The Broken English” who are in the process of writing and recording their fourth release.
