#MUSICMONDAY feat. Patrick Smith
"There are so many bands and songs that influence me heavily, so narrowing this playlist down was tough! Rock and Roll!! 🤘"
Since Patrick was little, he was fascinated with music. He recorded songs off the radio since he was 7 or 8 years old. When he turned 17, he played drums for a few months and then got hooked on the guitar. He played guitar for 5 years, writing and forming many different bands that never got off the ground. Finally in 2010, he switched to bass. Within a few months, he started getting offers to play bass with other people and he decided that he was going to go all in. He has been playing, teaching, and recording music full time for a living since 2011. He's traveled around the U.S. and a little bit around Europe. He currently plays with BJ Stricker & The Kings, Jim Suhler & Monkey Beat, SuperNova Remnant, Ryan Berg & The Velvet Ears, Nick Snyder & The Real Deal, Holy Roller Baby, and BadKid.
