The Smile Makers is the music of Eric Donaldson, Nicole Sutka and Jeff MacDonnell . Their original music mixes intricate vocal harmonies with poetic lyrics that have been called; "hauntingly beautiful." Their music is full of nuance and texture, encapsulating melodies that conjure hope and foreboding. The cross genre influences and unpredictable song structure puts them in a musical genre all their own. Their softer side is rounded out with rip-rocking tunes, roaring bass lines and guitar solos that will make you get up and dance.
When it comes to the Smile Makers, everything is unexpected. The music is intricate, delicate and sometimes a little dark.
