David P. Smith has been writing songs, performing and recording for 20+ years with various configurations of musicians you can explore on his Live Victoria profile. He has established himself as one of Victoria’s most captivating and original songwriters. Sad, savage, slapstick, surreal songs, vivid spaces where humour and despair battle on a desolate plain, as confounding as they are beautiful. At the core, Smith is essentially a storyteller,his narratives visceral and often hilarious, peering into darkness, stumbling into surrealism, before lurching back to universal everyday-isms.

He improvises free noise pieces and film soundtracks under the name Grampa Big Balls. Sometimes he collaborates with noise artist CSTL under the name Malibu Kens.
