ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
This cd was recorded live off the floor and really captures the amazing feeling of being at a Smith Funk and Strauss concert and watching a group of friends make great music together. Mix together some fine harmonies and insightful lyrics, a healthy dose of fingerstyle acoustic guitar textures.. throw in some choice celtic rythmns and maybe a little acoustic blues to keep the sound a bit raw; and you have a powerful mixture that will have you hitting repeat on your cd player over and over again.

Instrumentation:
Andrew Smith-vocals, acoustic guitars, mandolin , electric guitars and earthy, philosphical meanderings. Sherri Funk- vocals, tambourine and assorted wild dance manouvers. Norm Strauss-vocals, acoustic and electric guitars and straightman jokes. This cd also features the incredible Eric Bosemen on drums and Dean (Deano)Clark on bass guitar.

Biography:
Smith Funk & Strauss is an acoustic trio based in Kelowna BC. Andrew Smith's finger-style guitar work, Sherri Funk's jazzy vocals and Norm Strauss's blues sensibilities combine to create their unique sound. Their show features great original songs, tight playing, rich vocal harmonies and unpredictable antics which keep the crowd and the band spellbound.

The trio has played house concerts and folk clubs from coast to coast including the Bow Valley Music Club, the Northern Lights Folk Club, the Fringe Folk Club and the Prince George Folk Festival. They have also opened for American folk artists David Wilcox and Ruthie Foster.

Press Reviews for Smith Funk and Strauss live performances:

Cochrane Valley Folk Club
Dean Clark-Artistic Director
"SFS are more than entertainers. Through their well crafted, fun and thought provoking songs they invite you on a journey of the heart. This trio will treat you to a rich blend of jazz, folk & blues. Cochrane Valley folk club has hosted artists such as Harry Manx and Lynn Miles and SFS remain among the favorites in our club. I believe in the near future SFS will be a familiar face in the Canadian folk scene."



Kelowna Daily Courier
JP Squire
"Each member of this trio is a talented artist in his/her own right. However, their intricate harmonies tie the divergent parts together as if they were one...solo guitar work by Smith had everyone in awe as he combined string slaps with an unusual picking style."


Nickelodeon Folk Club
Vic Bell-Artistic Director
"SFS's onstage energy and musicianship was hands down the highlight of the festival"


Event Magazine
Jude Campbell
"Smith Funk & Strauss is a serious trio that combines music and laughs. They paint a picture that captures imagination, stirs the soul and takes the listener on a musical journey...they are perfect together."


Northern Lights Folk Club
Bill Werthmann-Artistic Director
"SFS were a treat to the heart as well as the ear. Tight harmonies from three clear voices that could easily hold their own as soloists and arrangements of original material that allowed them to show off their individual talents..."


Bow Valley Music Club
Larry Taylor, Artistic Director
"...the fine harmonies and blend of voices was very appealing, the guitar work was excellent and the original tunes were first rate--making for a very entertaining evening."


The View
Tonya J Alton-staff writer
For those who weren't at the Folk Fringe Club, on Saturday night in Kelowna, you missed the remarkable blend of jazz, blues, folk, Celtic and even gospel performances by the trio known as Smith, Funk and Strauss !

SFS brings to the style of folk, a distinct nature of uniqueness that also embraces the roots of jazz and blues. Many times as they spoke in between, laughter would erupt throughout the room as the band members each bantered back and forth with one another , all in the name of fun!

The show itself combines the intimacy of connecting with the audience, then adds in a sense of humour, a touch of personal reflection and a diverse selection of songs that people of all ages can relate too.
