Lloyd Smiley is an Ottawa-based musician.

He was born downtown by the Rideau River & raised in the countryside of North Gower, Ontario. He currently lives half of the year in the busy Capital city & the other half in near-seclusion beside a Lake, West of Montreal, where there are no roads & he has has time to pour many long hours into cultivating his "Cottage Rock" style. 

"His mix of soul & city blues will keep your toes tapping while he whistles his way into your dreams," someone said.

In 2016, he released a 5-song EP of his original songs with his band, The Minor 9s, featuring Brad Lapensee (Sparklesaurus) on drums.

Stay tuned for his upcoming debut solo album, Christmas 45rpm record, and much more...!
