We started Smile Smile in 2005 in our second story home in Dallas, TX. Jencey practiced on a hand-me-down organ and I had a no name guitar that I found in a dumpster. We wrote songs honestly, with no regard for the current music trends. Our friend Russell booked our first shows at legendary Dallas clubs, Trees and Gypsy Ballroom. We could play five songs and used our show money to pay the electric bill. In the winter of 2005 we recorded a three song demo in our living room and sent it to Josh Venable, the host of The Adventure Club on KDGE 102.1 in Dallas. It was a burned CD in a manilla envelope and we thought it was a long shot. A week later he sent us an email telling us he was going to play Smile Smile on the radio and that got the ball rolling for us. We were lucky enough to have a good deal of success. Then we had a shattering breakup and went through the devastating process of writing and recording “Truth on Tape“. Now we are giving it to you as a testament to living our dreams, living through a broken heart and the aftermath of love. Please share your stories with us and we hope it helps.
