1 Less Stone is Dave & Tami Smith, a husband and wife team from the Houston Texas area. Our music can be somewhat hard to pinpoint; a mix of elements of rock, pop, and electronic which is comparable to the styles of Mercy Me, 4 Him, Phillips Craig & Dean, the Newsboys, Peter Gabriel, Crowded House, Thomas Dolby...a wide variety indeed!
All of the songs that we wrote and own the copyrights to are avaiable as free downloads. God has blessed us with these songs and we want you to have them. If you feel led to donate something for any music you download, let us know by contacting us through our email link. We do ask that our music not be mass distributed or copied without our permission.
1 Less Stone also produces custom song tracks for songwriters. Are you a songwriter that needs a song recorded? We can do it! Anything from simple to complete music productions...Let us handle it for you. Our prices are certainly not bad and we take great pride in the quality of our work.
Yes. We are looking to book some dates in the near future. We perform at churches, missions, prisons...wherever and whenever God leads.
4 Him, Phillips Craig & Dean, Watermark, Jeremy Camp, delirious!, and many others too numerous to name.
Various guitars and basses, Roland Fantom X keyboards (our favorite), Korg MS-2000, Sonar Producer, Sony Acid Pro, Sony Sound Forge, lots of software synths and recording applications.
