Aidan Smith is a young songwriter who is beginning to make a name for himself in the music world. He sings and plays Piano, Guitar and Bass Guitar. He writes his own songs and plays these both as a solo artist and with his backing band. As well as writing and performing, Aidan is studying music performance at The Academy of Music and Sound in Glasgow. He is already playing in clubs and pubs and other venues in the west and east of Scotland and further afield in such places as Skye and Rothesay. His versatility in playing a variety of different covers as well as his own compositions means that he is in constant demand.
Aidan doesn’t like the idea of being pigeon-holed as far as his music goes and believes that his songs and songwriting cover a variety of genres including folk, piano pop, ballads and even comedy. He has even dipped his toes into the realms of social comment while still being able to tailor his set to suit individual venues.
Aidan already has several releases to his name which are available to listen to and purchase at www.aidansmithmusic.bandcamp.com.
