Aidan Smith got his multi-instrumental training in piano lessons, Salford Music Centre brass and swing bands, teenage campfire jams and drumming on books with pens whilst meant to be doing his homework.
He has made two records on a blue 4-track tape machine for Manchester’s revered Twisted Nerve Records, before releasing two full-length records on Analogue Catalogue, and Humble Soul. During this period he also hibernated, worked in public libraries and sound tracked a number of short-films. Smith also co-wrote a ‘super-8 musical film’ “It’s Nick’s Birthday” which also included his first ever-acting role…staring as a piece of pepperoni.
To date, there have been support slots with Badly Drawn Boy, and Brendan Benson amongst others, and tours with I Am Kloot, Turin Breaks, and King Creosote. In recent times, never one to rest on his laurels Smith has co-wrote and acted in a one-off sold-out stage musical at Manchester’s Green Room Theatre and performed accordion, bass and keyboards for various bands. He also produced and rhymed on rap album ‘Other People’s Money’ by Public Sector, a crew his started with three friends from the Manchester Music Scene.
