Steve Smith

Guitars by day, music by night

Listen to this story
Steve Smith says he's living his dream. He lives in Brant Lake where he shares his love of music and builds his own guitars. Musicians who've influenced his Americana-style include Steven Stills, Jerry Garcia, Johnny cash and Levon Helm. He's been a musician most of his life, and plays guitar, bass, drums and piano. You'll hear his music at a solo concert in Lake Placid tonight and a concert in North Creek with the SL Smith Band on Sunday afternoon. Smith told Todd Moe that living in the southern Adirondacks has had a big influence on his life and music. He's off to Nashville later this year to record a new album. And there are other life changes. His sister's death a year ago pushed this former carpenter into making music and guitars full time.
