The history of Brian and Stephen playing together goes back to 1998. They met while playing with Stephen's older brother John. They had been recording at Bloch Sound in Alexandria. John had decided to go solo to pursue other musical interests, so the collaboration between Brian and Stephen was born. Recording began immediately on their debut CD entitled SMAKDADDY. Thanks to some good word of mouth... and hyping the CD on the internet, the CD sold fairly well, as far as independant releases go. Trying to strike while the iron was hot, they started working on a 2nd CD called JANUARY MOON. It came out in 2000, and again sold moderately. With all the time they had spent together, they started to feel the strains in their working relationship. They managed to squeak out one last release called GYPSY WOMAN. While it was a different direction for the guys, it proved to be the last offering from them. So began a time of no new music from the duo. Brian went on to do sessions with friends, while Stephen went on to become the lead singer of the band SLIENT DREAM, also featuring Clint Small, which he left when his son was born in 2002. A period of total inactivity followed. Stephen had been posting on the ZEBRA discussion boards when he was approached about appearing on the local Cerebral Palsy Telethon. At first he tried to contact his older brother John, who was too busy doing something, so he decided to call Brian, and the rest you can say is history. They quickly threw together enough material to do the show and there you go. But the story doesn't quite end there as they have decided to record another , yet CD. And that new Cd arrived! Featuring a song that was played already on local radio and on WFSS in Fayetteville , North Carolina (Thanks Peggy!!), "What Do You Want" promised to please the auditory senses of everyone involved. This Cd has many radio ready songs, and some of those songs have been posted on message boards in various demo forms. Bringing in Clint Small, the threesome is beginning work on re-recording some of the original material they had done before as well as working on new material.In the meantime, their music has been played on IMRadio, AIIRadio, The Micheal Nayat Show, Destination Dawn, and GETV Live Broadcasting. New stuff is currently being recorded.
