We All Have Read Heartsby The Smile Band
Today we are very excited to introduce you to a very talented group of young ladies who make up an all-girls band that has gained a lot of momentum across Greater Vancouver for the past few years. At such a tender young age, they have already gained much attention performing at many schools and charity events across Greater Vancouver. They give new meaning to the term triple threat, each playing their own instrument at live events, sharing their beautiful voices, and now, even writing their own material with an album of 8 original songs soon to be released.
Band manager, Terry Tarmitage explains, “Our story starts at the end of a school year a few years back when, as a music teacher, I was working with my students on our year end recital. Like every other year, I was preparing my students for this event and Avery was a guitar student of mine at the time. She brought her sister along to perform in the recital. When I heard them sing together, I new they had something special. I have worked with young bands in the past and I thought it would be interesting to explore the avenue of an all-girls band. Avery ,Veronica and Nikita are very much in sync with each other. They are willing to work hard to obtain their goals as musicians and give greatly and freely back to the community.” Terry pauses then continues, “We are very proud of these young girls – for they might have their ‘Heads in the Stars‘ but they also have their feet firmly planted on the ground. We are sure that with their determination and desire, they are destined for great things.” Heads In The Stars is the name of their new 8 song original CD that will soon be released. When asked where we can find this album, Terry explains, “We have just finished recording and mixing all the songs so it hasn’t been released yet. It will be ready by spring break and made available on Spotify, iTunes, and many other digital platforms. We will also have CD’s available to be purchased at our shows, along with USB sticks. Fans will also be able to contact us through our website and on Facebook to download or order a copy of our album. To get the CD out there, we will only charge $5.00 plus shipping, so the price is good!”
