David P. Smith

Instruments: Accordion, Piano/Keyboards, Vocals, Composition/Songwriting, things details
David P. Smith is a multi-disciplinary artist who jumped from visual art, Dadaist performances, and slam style poetry into the Victoria (Canada) musical scene with the irreverent hillbilly punk band The Dogbreath Brothers. He is a dynamic performer and an unflinchingly original songwriter who in the past 18 years has released six full length recordings, numerous ep’s, and led a variety of musical projects that have consistently defied convenient genre classifications. Deconstructing and reconstructing classic folk, hillbilly, and blues forms he has created a unique body of work that is tragic and hilarious, profane, surreal, and occasionally profound. Aside from his original music project, David is eclectic in his pursuits - from his low tech free noise project Grampa Big Balls, to being a driving force behind The Songs of Hank Williams, to drawing, poster design, photography and video (Instagram @jackasspath)
