Discography!!




I recently released that I am developing a professional discography!  I have some releases on Bandcamp via my MTM site and my Matt Smiley site, but most of these are amateur recordings (not to say they aren’t worth checking out).  All of the ones listed below are recorded in a professional studio.  There is a diversity of jazz records and a rock album.  Unfortunately most of these aren’t released yet, but give it 6-8 months and I think most of these will be commercially available.  More information on the big band record to come I hope, I’ll be recorded it this weekend.
