Guitarist Michael-Louis Smith radiates positivity and brings amazing musicians and music-lovers together under the same beat. A top-tier bandleader and recording artist, Michael has toured nationally at major venues such as LA’s Troubadour Club, NYC’s legendary Apollo Theater, and Vermont’s Discover Jazz Festival. Michael’s ensembles Left Ear Trio and MLS Quintet showcase his genre-bending medley of jazz, funk, and afrobeat. In 2012, Michael-Louis Smith and his bandmates backed German Nigerian hip hop/soul star Nneka (Sony Music) on her US tour. The following year, MLS Quintet released First Black Nation (2013), a deeply emotional, multi-movement instrumental that tells a story about the 2010 Haiti Earthquake.
