d.smith is an American singer, songwriter, guitarist, bassist, best known for his work with Shirk Circus and Inger Lorre.
d.smith joined the seminal New Jersey-based power pop band Shirk Circus in 1992. After signing to Bar/None Records, he spent the better part of the 1990s recording and touring as the band's bassist.
After the demise of Shirk Circus, d.smith did a brief stint as bassist for Inger Lorre (formerly of The Nymphs) where he, along with Jeff Buckley, played on the sessions that would eventually become the 1999 release, Transcendental Medication. During this period, he also played with Keith Morris after being introduced through Lorre.
After agreeing to produce local indie outfit The 65's, d.smith subsequently became the band's guitarist/singer until eventually deciding to leave and release an EP (The End of Everything) followed by the oddly-sequenced Groping for Luna trilogy (Volumes 2, 1 and 3, respectively).
