A FUZZY NERD MAKING FUZZY MUSIC
Smoochyface is an indie band based in Atlanta, GA. Incorporating narrative elements from video games, cartoons, & comic books, Smoochyface combines the churn of fuzzy guitars with live improvisation for a unique experience in geek rock.
Founded by long-time composer / producer / touring musician R.Garcia (of the band Snoot) as an outlet for his more personal musings, Smoochyface began performing live in 2017 in support of its debut EP, The Cracks Are Where the Light Shines Brightest, a 4-part suite of music inspired by the ‘Legend of Zelda’ video game series.
Since its inception, Smoochyface has performed at the Southern-Fried Gameroom Expo (ATL), and MAGFest (DC). Garcia is no stranger to the convention circuit, having performed with past projects at DragonCon (ATL), as well as Orlando Nerd Fest (FL) and Nerdapalooza (Orlando, FL). Additionally, Smoochyface can be found advocating for LGBTQ+, abuse victims, and civil rights, through Garcia’s own Nophest Music Festival, a charity event now in its 12th year of operations.
In 2018, Smoochyface released their own video game, ‘Epic Snack Run.’ Developed by Garcia at his own Fort Karate Studios, ‘Epic Snack Run’ tells the wacky tale of Garcia’s two pet dogs teaming up to steal a car, resulting in a junk food joyride set to a high-energy soundtrack. The game is available to play online for free on PC or Mac computers.
The band’s future projects include a 40-minute rock opera inspired by the ‘Steven Universe’ animated series, as well as a second EP of music inspired by the ‘Legend of Zelda’ video game series. Smoochyface is currently booking for 2018. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for any inquiries or availabilities.
