Eric Smidi Smith, born January 27 1960 in Covington, Kentucky. Smidi is a self taught musician. His interest in music started in 1968. Smidi's primary instruments are the Bass and Lead guitars. The name SMIDI derives from MIDI (musical, instrument, digital, interface) Smidi joined the US Air Force in 1981 and he retired as an E6 in 2001. During his military career Smidi auditioned and was selected to tour as the lead guitarist with the Air Force - Tops-N-Blue Entertainment Showcase Group. In 1990 Smidi was assigned to Nellis AFB, Nevada where he was introduced to MIDI instruments and equipment. He quickly learned that he could sequence all of the musical instruments from a common computer source. Since discovering the use of MIDI equipment in 1992 Smidi has sequenced music tracks for well known artist i.e. Leon Haywood, Spice 1, Bobby Jones, Chuck Roberson, New Birth, and Clay Hammond. Smidi produced the music for songs in the movies Love Beat The Hell Outta Me 2000, Gang Tapes 2003 and HEROS 2008. Smidi also produced the theme song track for The Venetian Wheel Deal Game Show on the Las Vegas Strip.
Smidi has approximately 2000 created original instrumental music tracks in his music catalog, and over 1250 registered song titles with ASCAP. His goal is to achieve recognition as a well rounded successful musician in multiple genres.
