Description

A Saskatoon based Folk-Rock band

Bio:

It's been an eventful past four years for Saskatoon's Gunner & Smith. Starting in 2010 as a solo project by folk artist Geoff Smith, the band evolved into a multi-member indie country rock ensemble that traverses the rocky line between post-prairies balladeering and grit-covered rockers, for those given to heavy highway drives and long, expansive thoughts.

Discography

  • He Once Was a Good Man

    Various Artists

    February 2014

    G&S find themselves with their most realized sound to date, despite taking several different directions. It wasn’t until they hit the studio that things became apparent and cohesive – a concept that was unintentionally synonymous with their own journey. Working with producer Boldt (The Deep Dark Woods), sessions were spontaneous, using live takes to find their sound. Even with increased warmth and beauty of arrangements and tones, Smith is a master at producing haunting songs that are informed by powerfully bleak lyrics - even his sunniest moments are shadowed with lingering vocals and drama. Produced by: Ryan Boldt. Recorded at: The Avenue Recording Studio, Saskatoon SK. More info: gunnerandsmith.com Released: February 25, 2014

  • Byzantium

    Various Artists

    September 2017

    The music of Gunner & Smith has always been a collection of fiery elements, blending searing guitars, brawny rhythms and distinct folk-family vocals. But on “Byzantium”, the group’s second full-length album, the songs simmer and seethe with a newfound brooding energy that looks at the darker sides of love, loss, and humanity. Inspired by Townes Van Zant, Neil Young, and Pink Floyd, Gunner & Smith considers this album their indie folk/rock, post-David Bowie blues. The album’s producer, Nashville’s Andrija Tokic, worked on the Grammy-winning Alabama Shakes’ debut album “Boys & Girls.”

    Recorded at: Sinewave Studios, Saskatoon. Produced by: Andrija Tokic. Released: September 22, 2017
