Tony Smith Guitar   416-357-2453 

Drayton is a group of 3 neighbors from Drayton avenue in Toronto. Gord Mowat on bass, Dan Monich on drums and Tony Smith on guitar. We recorded this album in Nicola's basement in a house on Drayton . No overdubs or editing is used for this recording because the spirit of this project was to just play live and see what happens. 

Tony Smith Guitarist
I studied music at Humber College and then played in and around Toronto for about 10 years before the desire to relocate to Europe saw me to move to London, England. The music scene was lively, and I found a gig with a soul band. I also connected with some fusion guys .At that time there were some great studios in town (which include home studios) and one of them asked me to come and make a record. In fact, I made 2 and then I just kept on going, recording whenever and wherever possible.The jazz /funk great Roy Ayers ask me to join his European/American lineup so I played with him for 10 years and toured Europe ,Japan, Australia and beyond . I then left london for France where I wrote and recorded some more albums. Now I'm back in Toronto . I have created two exciting bands here, The Foragers, a mainly instrumental rock/funk trio and Growler, a five piece Jazz/Groove band . All my music can be streamed on bandcamp and Spotify etc. Click on the Music button below to listen !
