Stephen Paul Smoker just released his long awaited album Ripe Fruit on Kilo Records and it is looking and sounding great! Be sure to check out the vinyl on sale here. I had the pleasure of recording with the Pilsen band and will join the stage with them at the Empty Bottle on Friday April 27th in Chicago. Doors open at 10pm. The record is also available through iTunes.
2010 Has been a great year so far; playing an event for Playboy Magazine with Black Bear Combo, a song with Jody Watley and a performance at Lollapalooza with Mumford & Sons. I’ve also recorded on a number of soundtracks written by Carl Sondrol for MSN.com, Orbit gum and Collegehumor.com.
In Chicago you can see me play with JC Brooks and the Uptown Sound and Black Bear Combo. Every Thursday night, I play lead trumpet with Alan Gresik’s Swing Shift Orchestra at The Green Mill Cocktail Lounge. Also come check out Stephen Paul Smoker at the North Coast Music Festival in Union Park, Sunday September 5th. I’m sure I’ve left out a number of things…
Enjoy this video by JC Brooks and the Uptown Sound!
