Brant Lake, NY, Apr 16, 2010 — 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.
