Jimmy is best known for his 2 decades performing with famed Austin, TX alt-country outfit, The Gourds, as one of the two principal songwriters and bass player. Though best known for their viral "bluegrass" cover of Snoop Dogg's Gin n' Juice, their 12 albums and thousands of live shows have been lauded by critics across the years and across the country (Paste, Pitchfork, Austin Chronicle, NPR). Alongside Kevin "Shinyribs" Russell, Max Johnston (formerly of Wilco), Claude Bernard and Keith Langford, the band relentlessly toured the country, playing every festival stage imaginable and recording with the likes of Doug Sahm and long-time Bob Dylan sideman, Larry Campbell (at Levon Helm's house). Though their days as a band came to an end in 2013, Jimmy has continued playing music as The Hard Pans, The Jimmy Smith System and most recently as a power duo in Smith-McKay All Day.
Smith/McKay All Day (formed in early 2018) combines Jimmy's bar-band-booty-shaking grooves and surreal tongue-in-cheek songwriting with the Texas/Montana blues and country sensibilities of seasoned bluesman, Pat McKay. Smith/McKay All Day calls Missoula, MT home. Please check out Jimmy's website for more information.
