Smantx
Smantx
Smantx is an Indie rock band originating from Baltimore. The group consists of Kyle Wesley (lead vocals, rhythm guitar), Chris Dennard (lead guitar), Keni Luck (bass), and Eric Smith (drums). Having played on the most well-known stages in Baltimore, alongside artists that have more fame, Smantx and their music have created their own lane which is why they are rapidly creating a name for themselves. In a short time, they have become one of the most in-demand bands in Baltimore. As one fan put it, “Their music has this thing I can’t quite put my finger on, but I know I like it. It’s almost too good to listen to!”. After playing the song “The Wild” on their radio station and referencing a Smantx performance they had recently seen, the on-air personality at ClearChannel stated that the performance was, “phenomenal….Just hook after hook, after hook!” It’s not surprising that the band is experiencing an increase in fan attendance and organic social media following.
The Smantx story is one that includes harmful and life-altering health issues, drug addiction, depression, loss; even death, as well as all the other common issues that plague most bands. The beauty of their story is the tremendous belief in themselves to be able to overcome the odds and follow their dream. All of which, by the way, have been placed firmly within the music they’ve created.
