Hi I’m Charly Smith, a 21-year-old musician currently studying at East Tennessee State University majoring in Bluegrass, Old-Time, and Country Music.

I started playing piano when I was 5 and guitar when I was 13.

As a multi-instrumentalist I play a wide range of genres including but not limited to Celtic, Bluegrass, Rock, Folk, Country, and Pop.

I have had multiple experiences performing live with bands in small venues ranging from Weddings to St Patricks Day celebrations, Charity Events and Local music nights.

Recently I have completed a 15-week internship as an Audio Intern/Stage Hand at Grace Fellowship Church primarily using the DiGiCo SD10.

My goal is to be a touring musician in a band playing rhythm guitar/keys.
