Antoine Smith - November 19 @ BlogTalkRadio.com/ColoredPeople 7pm Pacific/10pm Eastern



Antoine Smith

Antoine Christopher Smith was born on August 1, 1992 in Euclid, Ohio.

He comes from a wide range of family history in music that once indulged very heavily in local bands as musicians, singers, dancers, composers, managers, and teachers. His main influences are his father, Robert Lee Smith III, who is a bass player, lead guitarist, trumpeter and pianist.

His mother, Carolyn Fuentes who is a published writer, singer, keyboardist and drummer.

His mother's sister Patricia, who is a violinist and plays the bass

His grandmother, who is a gospel singer and last but certainly not least his grandfather, the late Rev. B. L. Miles who was a singer, and played the rhyme guitar, organ, and piano in his church.

Antoine's history of the piano/keyboards comes from once “dabbling” with a keyboard gifted to him by his late grandfather.

It is no wonder this young man is so talented!

The story is told that before his grandfather passed in the year of 1998, at the age of 5 years old, Antoine was delivered through the mail a keyboard a day after his grandfather’s burial.

Not knowing at a very young age of what to expect, he gave up his keyboard to his brother, Rick to learn to play. As the years went by, Antoine felt the need to pick up the keyboard at the age of 14 years old to “dabble” his way into composing his very own songs.

After studying the drums at the age of 11 years old to his recent age of 15 years old under his teachers, ( Mr. Janowitz - a graduate of Cleveland State University and Mr. Puin - a graduate of Berkley College), Antoine composed and dedicated his song, Mr. Puin on his first CD, “TWAN” released, Oct. 2, 2007.

Antoine has been playing the “quads” in the marching band, the “snare” and “bass drum” in the stage band, honors band, and orchestra, and the “drum-set” and “congas” in the jazz band at his high school.

Antoine composes and plays mainly, contemporary jazz as well as other genres including music for video games.



His latest CD is "Daydream" released under the "Turn on Records" label and "Mythical" and "City in the Sea" are yet to be released.

Antoine atributes his success to his faith and is a role model to his peers and his desire is to enter into an Audio Production and Engineering program.
