Smart picked up the harmonica in his freshman year of college. He wasn’t very good and knew very little
about music, but today he can play just fine. His influences are heavily steeped in the blues greats like Muddy Waters, Howlin’
Wolf, and Little Walter. A few years ago, he picked up singing to go along with his harp. You can see him
beltin’ out tunes every Thursday night at Darwin's Blues Jam in Marietta.
Matthew’s harmonica style is very simple: big tone, strong vibrato, sweet
bends and a few riffs borrowed from the greats. Matthew has been teaching the harmonica for 8 years in Georgia. In
addition to teaching, Matthew has also been a corporate trainer for 10 plus years.
These are a few of my credits and accomplishments...
