Smith & Tegio
Smith & Tegio
Smith & Tegio is a duo featuring vocalists and acoustic guitarists Austin Smith and Mark Tegio. While these two singer songwriters and long time friends are both San Diego natives, they have been living in the San Francisco Bay Area for the past several years now. Mostly passing those years sitting at a kitchen table littered with beer cans and a dirty ashtray either writing, learning, or playing songs together. It was at those tables that Smith & Tegio's amalgam of outlaw country and folk music was born. It’s the inevitable result of a bad case of wanderlust from a head full of Merle Haggard and Waylon Jennings, and a heart full of Townes Van Zandt and Blaze Foley that doesn't know whether to laugh or cry. Still, they do not fit neatly into either genre, but instead have created their own blend of the two: Outlaw folk. Smith & Tegio released their self-titled debut album earlier this year. Throughout the album there are subtle nods to the duo's outlaw country and folk influences.

I am a harpist and songwriter of blues, folk and pop influence based in Half Moon Bay, CA. I spent 3 years in Scotland getting my BA in Scottish harp and Gaelic song at the RSAMD (now RCS) in Glasgow, and a year learning the Scottish Gaelic language at Sabhal Mòr Ostaig on the Isle of Skye. It did rain a lot. My first album of original songs, ‘Who Asked You Back’ will be released February 3, 2018.
