New paintings site

Greg Smith Sounds is only half the story.

I have a new site where I’ll be showing off my visual art and where you can find out about upcoming gallery shows. It’s still in the works, but I’d love to hear your feedback:

Summer 2013

Hi folks.
The latest G. Smith and The Bad Dreamers single “The Secret Life” is up at bandcamp. You can buy it here:
The song is also up on the CBC 3 site if you want to stream it there.
Stay tuned for autumn gig announcements.
Moo play our first show in 22 years Sept 13th 2013 at The Sister 1554 Queen W, Toronto, ON with The Two Minute Miracles and Wayne Omaha. We can’t remember exactly how to play our old songs so we are just making new ones. Jodie took one of our practice recordings and made a video for the tune “Darren Hill”. Here it is:
The Michael Parks have made available our latest record “Eternity Blues” on bandcamp and are set to release the long lost Death Plunge EP on that very same site this fall. Perhaps we will play a show or 2. That would rule.
Also, I am super stoked The Weakerthans are playing 3 shows at the end of the summer. We haven’t played for almost 2 years.
See you soon.

Summer/Autumn News !

Hello friends !

It has been awhile. The Bad Dreamers and I are doing a few backing vocal tracks and then our new record is done ! Mix and Master at The House of Miracles and then we get it out there somehow. Looks like our only 2012 gigs (so far) will be a month of Thursday nights in November at The Press Club in Toronto. More details to follow.

My new batch of paintings (literary type portraits) will be at Cowbell (1564 Queen W, Toronto, ON) through October 2012. Some of these will be up here on the website soon.

My series of Ontario wildlife paintings are complete and looking for a gallery. A couple sold already which is beauty. Some images will be up on this website soon also.

Beauty on.
