About Band

Bethany Saint Smith & The Gun Show formed out of a widespread gang from all over the states and across the seas. From the West Coast to the East Coast, these guns started to take form in 2006. With "the instincts of an aged American Blues singer" (Susaye Green of The Supremes calls her), Bethany Saint Smith, you taste and savor every note she belts with her shadowed lyrics of an old soul. "She reminds me of the earthy Odetta of 60's Folk/rock fame, or of Nina Simone's scathingly sophisticated perceptions of life." (Susaye Green) The musically eclectic men of her taste include; Neil Richard (guitar), Mike Edelman (guitar), Jon Fallin (bass), Shu Nakumara (guitar), Justin Saunders (guitar) and Daniel Geoghegan (drums), they have come together to create a sound that is older than your time and modified by today's ensemble of Dirty Blues and Rock and Roll sounds. This Blues/ Soul/ Rock'n'Roll band frequents the Manhattan Venues and trails to California from time to time as well. Here's what some other artists have to say about her: "Bethany Saint Smith has the instincts of an aged American blues singer. Though she's very young, there is a tug in the heart when you hear her sing, that grabs you and makes you wonder what she's lived through. She reminds me of the earthy Odetta of 60's Folk/rock fame, or of Nina Simone's scathingly sophisticated perceptions of life." -Susaye Greene (of the Supremes) "I know you've heard it before, but you do make me think of Odetta and that's a good thing." -Neal Casal (of Ryan Adams & The Cardinals and Hazy Malaze) "From the first note, WOW, what a voice! She sounded like the real deal: soulful and powerful, with perfect intonation and a lot of subtle volume shifts -- the dying art of vocal dynamics." -Greg Villapique (of Soul Patrol)
