Døvydas (previously known as David Smash) is a Lithuanian-born musician, composer, singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist. Døvydas has forged a successful career as an innovative soloist… but nothing’s better than the energy of creating music with a live band. Tonight, Dovydas will be joined by Jack Berry on Bass and Jarred Johnson on drums.
Døvydas started playing guitar at the age of thirteen in Lithuania, learning the drums, bass, piano, xylophone and harmonica shortly after. He was heavily inspired by a blues CD that his father bought in Germany, entitled Blues Giants Vol. 2, a compilation of blues songs from artist such as John Lee Hooker, Lightnin’ Hopkins, BB King, Etta James, and Memphis Slim.
Dovydas now makes a good living as a virtuoso busker and YouTube content creator with over 1 million subscribers, playing primarily out of St. Armands circle and taking requests, often for songs he doesn’t know.
