Song Descriptions:

1. "No Kiss" (2006) This was a scratch track that was recorded in Houston at the Destiny's Child studios. I did everything except the bass/lyrics and vocals and the solo work was all adlibbed. We had a lot of great response from this and the very next day it was sitting on Mathew Knowels' (Beyounce's Father)desk and it got his approval that day to be sent to New York. New York gave it the OK and sent it to London the HQ for Santuary Records (The Largest Record Label in the World). Sanctuary called Houston about 4 or 5 days later and said "We want these guys but we need a band photo and bio ASAP!" We didn't even have a band so I got one together in 2 days and sent them what I could but that was the last we heard anything. Oh Well, it was exciting anyway.

2. "Throwed" (2006) This was my last band during practice. I do the intro and the last solo in this song.

3. "Live Again" (2003) This song was about 2 days old when this was recorded. We were just happy to make it to the end without crashing and burning.

4. "A Simpler Time" (2006)This is a song that I wrote before the band was together but I didn't play any lead in this one.

Just want to find a group of people to write and record with. I want a finished product that can be marketed.

Not interested in gigging all the time. I'm married with 2 kids and the family comes first. I want to have fun and be able to make music that I'm proud of.

I want to start meeting some musicians in the area even though I don't have much time right now. We still have to go back and get our old house sold then find another one around here. If you might be interested in jamming some time email me at and put BandMix in the subject line so you don't get deleted. You can also email me at /cary_smith

I have a wide range of influences being the youngest of 11 kids.

95% of those bands I don't really listen to anymore and I never thought the day would come that I would actually change the radio station if I heard it come on. I really don't care to hear "Tush" or "Sweet Home Alabama" everyday anymore though.
