Joe Stamm Band really likes Fort Smith. They even recorded some songs about it.
As part of Peacemaker’s Emerging Artist of the Year program, Joe Stamm and his bandmates came to Fort Smith and recorded the five-song EP titled “Fort Smith” at Sōl Studios on Garrison Avenue.
“It’s extremely expensive to record and release music if you want to do it the right way. Any time that somebody comes along willing to partner with you on a project of this scope, and help you get music out in the world, it’s just a huge gift.”
Keep an eye out for Joe Stamm Band during Peacemaker Music Festival next weekend. The boys perform at 6 p.m. July 28 on the mainstage.
