Matt is backed by The Band of Brothers which is a top notch band consisting of two of his biological brothers and three "brothers in arms" who are either fellow military veteran's or first responders.  The band is built around what Matt writes and sings about: Faith Family & Freedom.


Tim Smith - Lead guitar/fiddle/mandolin/harmony vocals

                Tim is Matt's younger brother and is the band's utility player meaning he can play multiple instruments.  He is married with four children and his day job is flying 737's for a major airline.  

Ben Smith - Drums

               Ben is Matt's youngest brother and has been playing drums since he was 5.  He is married and is a drummer by night and farmer/agriculture professor by day. 

Adam Mullendore - Lead guitar/harmony vocals

                 Adam and Matt met in college at Eastern Kentucky University and paid their rent by playing the local bar scene.  Adam became an Army Helicopter pilot after college and did two combat tours in Afghanistan flying attack helos.  He is married and has four children.  Adam is an air evac pilot by day and rock star by night.

Billy Halls - Bass

               Bill is the newest member of the band of brothers and rounds out the band perfectly.  When he is not laying down the rhythms, he proudly serves the city of Lexington as a Police Officer.  

John Ed Auer - Fiddle (currently on sabbatical)

                John Ed and Matt met while serving as Marine Officers at Marine Barracks Washington.  John Ed is currently deployed to Iraq and is still serving on active duty.  The band hopes he can join again soon!
