Plumas Arts cultivating culture & community
Alex "Muddy" Smith plays Quincy's Words & Music
Quincy Words & Music, scheduled for Thursday, October 13, 2016 at Patti's Thunder Café starting at 7:00pm, will feature Alex "Muddy" Smith, singer, songwriter, and guitar player.

Muddy, a 50-year veteran of the musical stage, has a passion and true talent for songwriting. Mix that with an awesome singing style, solid guitar chops, humor and fantastic ability to connect with any audience and you have a memorable night of entertainment. His writing style is completely diverse and upbeat with lyrics that cross over from dead serious to over the top funny. His latest album, "When My Someday Comes Along" is a mixture of Jazz, Gospel, Country, Latin Jazz, Pop and Reggae is his third completely original CD.

The song getting the most attention on YouTube with over 12,000 hits is "Lucy (you got some splainin')." Lyrically it is a salute to the classic 50s sit-com, "I Love Lucy" in a traditional Latin groove.

He continues to release new interesting and fun singles including a Sinatra style jazz piece called, "Your Kiss" and two new Christmas tunes. When enough singles have been recorded they will be produced as a CD.

You can download two of his tunes free here:
