Gideon Smith is a North Carolina based musician who began singing in rock bands in 1989. In 1997, he formed Gideon Smith & The Dixie Damned with ex-members of Animal Bag. Soon they recorded a self-titled ep that was later distributed by doom metal label Game Two Records. Smith signed to seventies rock kings Small Stone Records In 1999, and the ‘Southern Gentlemen” album was released in 2000. A few ep releases and compilation cd songs later, Gideon returned with the second album “South Side Of The Moon” in 2008. Both albums have been called classics in their genre and received great international acclaim. Gideon’s music has been called a mix of southern rock, gothic blues, doom, space rock, and outlaw country. Recognized by his deep bluesy vocals he is often compared to Jim Morrison, Danzig, Ian Astbury and others. Gideon Smith & The Dixie Damned have been featured on such television series as The Sopranos, Sons of Anarchy, Dog The Bounty Hunter, Dudesons in America, Nitro Circus and more. Gideon’s underground cult icon status has grown to such proportions that in 2010 a tribute album was released entitled “F.T.W.” that had seventeen artists from around the world covering his musical works. Classic Rock Magazine featured Gideon as one of the best newcomers in their “150 Greatest Debut Albums” issue last year. Still alive and well, Smith and his comrades in the Dixie Damned have been playing an appealing blend of Black Sabbath and The Allman Brothers for over fourteen years. « hide
