Album Notes
Alfie Smith’s unique style of music can be best described as “Outlaw Blues”; blending hard edged Rock and Roll, Gospel, Folk and Jazz with Pure Primal Blues. It’s the ‘no holds barred’ kind of music of a modern day Blues Man. At the heart of the music is a singularly brooding baritone voice; in the tradition of the old Blues Shouters. Alfie’s vocal style is fine 20 year old single malt; Smooth and powerful with a burning passion that is the driving force of every song.

“Brass & Steel” is Alfie’s 5th CD and his 1st release for Busted Flat records. “Brass & Steel” showcases his multi-instrumentalist skill with everything that is fretted. Recorded in less than 12 hours; a true representation of his live performance.

This is the first release containing tracks with Alfie’s band ‘The Hard Cases’ Bob Doidge on Bass & Trumpet and James Richards on Drums. Special Guests and Honorary Hard Cases are Dan Walsh on Dobro & Lead Acoustic Guitar on Track 11, Shawn Trotter on Mandolin and Amy King on Piano. Brass and Steel was produced by Bob Doidge & Alfie Smith.

Alfie has been a featured performer at the Harbourfront Blues Festival, Mariposa, Festival of Friends, Home County, Eaglewood, Red Rock, Mill Race, Brampton, Octoberfolk, Orillia Spring Blues, Barriefolk and Orangeville Blues & Jazz festivals. He has also played such fine theatres as the Sanderson Center, Hamilton Place, the Lighthouse Theatre, Cambridge Art Centre and the Waterloo Community Arts Centre. Alfie was selected for official showcases at the O.C.F.F. and the 2005 Blues Summit II. He was nominated for Best Blues Album at the 2006 Hamilton Music Awards.
