LISTEN TO GUNNER & SMITH - 'EASE MY MIND':
(Saskatoon, SK) - It's time for Gunner & Smith to hit the road again! After spending much of 2014 on the road with almost 100 shows across Canada and the US, Saskatoon band Gunner & Smith are gearing up for their first tour of 2015 and it's going to be a solo one. Lead singer Geoff Smith will be performing as a solo Gunner & Smith, without the rest of the band, starting in Saskatoon on March 28th. See below for full tour schedule.
A lot can happen in a year. When Gunner & Smith released their first full-length album 'He Once Was a Good Man' back in February 2014, they set out to win fans one by one with multiple Canadian tours and even a few American shows. And it seems to be working. With just a little bit of hard work, plenty of determination and the help of their incredible video 'Towns', Gunner & Smith have proven themselves as a "band to watch" and have made their mark on the Canadian roots/alt-country scene.
Much of the credit for Gunner & Smith's success can be given to lead singer/man-in-charge Geoff Smith. "2014 was all about trying to get our album out to as many people, in as many places as we could," said Smith. "We are hoping to take what we've been learning from this last year and put it into our new album."
Upon the completion of the Spring 2015 Tour, Gunner & Smith will be heading to the recording studio to demo new material with plans to release a new album later this year. Until then, Gunner & Smith plan to stay on the road throughout 2015 with a mix of full-band and solo dates, including a string of tour dates in Western Canada coming up in June. Stay tuned for details!
