One of the most energetic, exciting and powerful live sounds to hit the South West of England in recent times, The Dirty Smooth are no strangers to the festival circuit, having quickly gained a reputation for playing original, anthemic pop songs, in addition to being tighter than a pair of Lizzo’s hotpants.
Following the release of their debut EP ‘Rise’ accompanied by a number of sold out local shows and radio interviews, the band quickly looked to expand their horizons. The band continued doing what they do best, writing catchy songs and making countless appearances at some of the biggest and best festivals across the South West of England, supporting a seemingly endless list of household names.
In 2017, The Dirty Smooth helped set up and organise Minety Music Festival, Wiltshire which in its first year, was shortlisted at the UK Festival Awards (Best New Festival category) and has since become a well established festival, now in its fourth year, hosting acts such as Cast, Space, Toploader, Republica & Chesney Hawkes.
Following on from the success of ‘Seed To The Spark’, which demonstrated the band’s unerring talent to pick out rhythmic grooves and strong vocal hooks, their latest single 'Black Jack City' focuses on more blues driven riffs, showing a different side to their talents.
With Matty Rico having joined the band on a permanent basis, the band are now moving from strength to strength and continuing to write new music. 2023 will see a number of single releases, which will be accompanied by a number of UK venue and festival dates.
