Smokey James and the Avalanche

The Brick


After New Jersey indie-rock band Steel Train went on hiatus, keyboardist Justin Huey relocated to Kansas City where he met local soul and r&b singer David Simmons. Out of a chance encounter came a writing session, and from that session came a whole mess of songs, taking on a unique blend from their distinctively different influences and careers. Smokey James & the Avalanche released their first two singles, "Down Like Fire" and "Love's Curse" in early 2017, and their debut EP will be available in June. They are proud to call Kansas City home.
