The story of Smithfield Bargain begins at a birthday party in late 2009, when a sassy young lady in a pretty dress meets two ruggedly handsome, stylish brothers in a room with a vacant piano.
Discovering a mutual love for all sounds old and new, vintage and blue, and a willingness to make music out of anything at arm’s length, the young lady and the two gentlemen convened over tea, instruments and voices in a Los Angeles living room two weeks later. David rummaged up a wine glass, a vase, an empty wine bottle and a ceramic bowl, intermittently tapping out melodic rhythms while playing his cello. Daniel put on a hat and delivered some lines from his guitar. Sri took off her shoes and sang a melody with no words. Someone brought out a piece of paper and a pen. The best darn idea that night.
Smithfield Bargain recently added Will Logan (percussion) to their line-up. The band finalized their first full-length studio album that was released on February 1, 2013 at The Bootleg Theater in Los Angeles, California.
