Smokey Miles Stars in Picnic Tool Debut Video
Housesitting for Bob Dylan, playing music around the globe, and being recognized in some parts as a count, are merely stepping stones to a gig as lead actor in Picnic Tool's debut video.
We’re really lucky to have Smokey Miles playing the lead for the “Einstein” video. He not only housesat for Dylan, but was a regular guest in Woodstock. The best part is, that was just the opening act for a great career. Smokey is a man of many talents, and we plan to use up as many as we can.
A musician in his own right, Smokey has played roots based music, both solo and fronting a band, all over the US and Europe. His 1990 album “Waiting for the Hurricane”, was produced by legendary songwriter Otis Blackwell (Elvis Presley, Jerry Lee Lewis, Peggy Lee). His music has been featured in film, and on TV. His videos are pure aural and visual treats, candy to be ingested by the senses.
As an actor Smokey has appeared in countless commercials, movies and TV shows. One of his most recognizable characters is that of Count Smokula, but they're all unforgettable. Still, seeing the whirling dervish, ball of action he is in Picnic Tool’s “Einstein” - we're confident a lot of people will remember him for this role..
Take a listen to Smokey’s music, and a gander at some of his work, you’ll be glad you did. See it here.
