Doug & Judy Smith at Lakewood


Judy Koch Smith

By weekday, a mild mannered Mobility Specialist with blind students; by weekend, a fun loving musician who enjoys listening to husband-virtuoso-fingerstyle-guitarist Doug perform live. Judy loves adding some flute and vocals to "classic rock or folk" songs in duet with Doug, or in trio with added Three Together friend Don Mitchell. She's been "fluting" and singing since grade school back in Ohio with four musical sisters. After three CD's with their acoustic trio, Judy recently recorded her first vocal solo album Keep It Under 90 in Portland, produced by Terry Robb. This CD is a mix of favorite old standards (Billie Holiday) and folk songs (Judy Collins) with a John Callahan original piece and an array of excellent local artists including Terry Robb, Doug Smith, Terry Prohaska, pianist George Mitchell, flugelhorn by Paul Mazzio, with Dennis Ciazza and Dave Kahl on bass.


Daniel Work at LakewoodLake Oswego's Daniel Work

started writing songs when he was 17, with a tune called "Lookin' Back," a pretty serious subject for a young, carefree boy. He's performed professionally for 30 years, as often as 200 gigs in a year. He is a multi-year "ASCAP plus" award recipient; produced/wrote and performed the "I've Got a Name (Obama)" song/ music video, as well as the University of Arizona Wildcat's "R.O.C.K. at the U. of A." song/music video which aired regionally on the Fox Sports Network.

Daniel's original adult-contemporary songs, style and voice are often compared to artists including Steely Dan, Elvis Costello, Jackson Browne, Sir Paul McCartney, Randy Newman, Alan Parsons and Colin Hay/Men at Work. His newest CD, entitled "SomeThingsTakeTime" contains a diverse set of 12 original songs recorded at Portland's famed KUNG FU BAKERY featuring Mike Braun (long-time drummer with Hall & Oates), Tim Ellis (Mr. Uber- guitarist), Albert Reda (multi-award winning NW bassist) and guest musical artist, Aaron Meyer (Portland's own electrifying rock violinist). The songs were mixed & tracked by Dean Baskerville (Sheryl Crow, Mark Cohn, Everclear) and mastered by San Francisco's Steve/Savage Music (Robert Cray, Bonnie Hayes). The CD, co-produced by Tim Ellis & Daniel Work, was released in 2009 and has received positive industry reviews. Daniel has been fortunate to share the stage with some amazing Portland talent including Patrick Lamb, Tim Ellis, John Nilsen, Tyler Stenson, Ellen Whyte, Jake Oken-Berg, Miguel Martinez and dozens of other talented musicians/songwriters.

The "Walk in the Rain" trio features Daniel on piano/guitar and vocals, accompanied by industry pro, Mr. Jeff Koch on guitar, and world-class drummer extraordinaire Mr. Mike Snyder.
