David Dyer & The Crooked Smile Band are a superbly talented group of veteran musicians from several of North Carolina’s finest bands. The Crooked Smile Band has been crafting their own brand of Americana inspired roots-rock since 1999 and have released 3 independent albums to date. The boys are now out supporting their latest effort, “Taproot”, a gospel-inspired collection of original tunes.
Wes Collins picked up the guitar when he was seventeen, and worked at it for ten years or so playing covers. Around his thirtieth birthday he parked the Takamine under the bed and got a straight job as a buyer for a retail music chain. He dug the guitar back out in 2000 and got back at it, but hit my forties before writing my first song, mainly because he was scared to write bad ones.
