Smidley is a project from Foxing singer Conor Murphy. His dog's name was Smidley. He was a black lab mutt and Conor loved him more than anyone he’d ever met. Now he's dead and this band is called Smidley. The Smidley debut features some of Conor’s friends including Cameron Boucher (Sorority Noise) Eric Slick (Dr Dog, Lithuania) Ben Walsh (Tigers Jaw).
