About Stuffy Shmitt

STUFFY SHMITT

Producer, songwriter, singer, guitar player Stuffy Shmitt recently released his fifth CD, Industrial Love (Realistic Records), which takes you on a true rock ‘n roll joyride! Shmitt has successfully reconnected with his rock ‘n roll roots while still paying tribute to his melodic, lyric-driven American story telling in song. This muscular production pulls you in with a kickin’ rhythm section (Anton Fier and Mike Visceglia), big beat rock guitars (Shmitt and Aaron Tasjan), memorable string arrangements and clever instrumentation, along with Shmitt’s rich, expressive vocals. The playlist of songs is classic Shmitt – moody, angular, intimate yet universal, quirky, sexy and infinitely listenable. Shmitt says the title track, “is like an edgy love story set in the movie Metropolis… urgent love and sex in the face of futuristic, urban calamity.”

On his previous release, Family Favorites (Realistic Records), a collection of fifteen original tunes, Shmitt does what he does best – sing, play guitar and tell stories. A true American song writer, his signature lyrical and melodic craftsmanship artfully weave his rock, blues - and even a hint of country - influences, all infused with Shmitt’s definitive moods and ever-present humor.

Family Favorites takes the listener on a semi-autobiographical sonic tour of Shmitt’s woeful observations as he and those closest to him stumble, kick, scream, falter and embrace life at its toughest and poignant best. The moods range from manic to somber, passionate to disenchanted… all with an under-pinning of humor and hope. It is this light amidst the darkness that makes Shmitt’s songs infinitely listenable. The sensitivity of Shmitt’s viewfinder on the world gives his words, music and rich vocals a tender, hard hitting and universal appeal. His songs resonate deeper with each listen.

On his third release, Other People’s Stuff (Realistic Records), Shmitt delivers an upbeat and thoroughly enjoyable musical journey of fourteen cover tunes, expertly spanning decades and genres. Shmitt’s interpretation of these songs is a departure from his previous two self-penned releases, Dog Steal The Moon and Nothing Is Real (Realistic Records). His understanding and respect for the songwriting process is clear, shining through in his production, musical arrangements, mixes and vocal performances.

Shmitt’s supporting cast of players on Other People’s Stuff is outstanding and includes special appearances by celebrities and legends such as David Johansen (NY Dolls, Buster Pointdexter, The Harry Smiths), Levon Helm (The Band), Gordon Gano (Violent Femmes), Jayotis Washington (The Persuasions), Willy DeVille (Mink DeVille), and Stockard Channing (The West Wing, Grease).

Through his production choices on Other People’s Stuff, Shmitt pays tribute to the original songwriters and performers of the tunes, while at the same time putting his personal thumbprint on the work, making it fresh and undeniably his own. His lush vocals and top-notch guitar playing make the CD timeless and infinitely listenable. The CD possess the warmth of the past, and manages to be thoroughly modern.

On Dog Steal The Moon, Shmitt followed up the critical success of his debut release, Nothing Is Real, by delivering a new collection of original songs; Shmitt’s trademark ballads are made even more poignant, on Dog Steal The Moon, by their juxtaposition to a set of uptempo rockers that prove Shmitt’s ability to crank it up. Written, performed, arranged and produced by Shmitt, he demonstrates his audio-fluency, and capacity to conceptualize a cohesive project. His confessional style of writing possesses a familiarity and a uniqueness. “A singular voice whose songs get as much power from the words as from the music... lyrically poetic,” wrote New York Post rock reviewer Dan Aquilante.

Shmitt’s talent hasn’t gone unnoticed. Radio personality Vin Scelsa (NYC) sang praises, “artist Stuffy Shmitt... his tunes knock me out” and called Nothing Is Real “a mesmerizing piece of work.” And radio host Peter Bochan (NYC) named the debut CD “one of the best indie releases this year.” Shmitt has two songs featured in the independent feature “Thirty Days” (An Araca Group/Arielle Tepper Production). He composed and produced the soundtrack for the documentary, “Abandoned,” (Crowing Rooster Arts, Inc.) which premiered at the Human Rights Watch Film Festival at Lincoln Center in New York City and won the Dupont/Columbia University Award for Excellence in Broadcast Journalism. Other film music credits include “The Heavenly Kid” (Orion Pictures) and the award-winning educational children’s film “Whatever Happened To The Dinosaurs?” (Blackwatch Productions). Shmitt also co-wrote the theme song for the Ace Award winning MTV show “Turn It Up.” His music can be heard in the film "Happy Tears" starring Rip Torn and Demi Moore and in the Showtime series "Californication". He has performed his own material in venues coast to coast.
