Keith Everette Smith

Producer, Songwriter, Multi-Instrumentalist, Music Director

 

Keith Everette Smith is a Grammy winning and Dove Award winning producer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and teacher and a member of TobyMac's Diverse City Band.  If there’s one thread that comes through everything he does, it’s that he’s good at seeing potential, envisioning where to go and helping lead people there. He is an activator.

Smith is a lifelong trumpet player whose understanding of music, recording and performer development positions him as a sought after session player and arranger.   As a producer, Keith has a track record of success both within and outside of the church.  He has worked with artist like Jack White, The Jonas Brothers, TobyMac, Plumb, Dave Barnes, MercyMe, Amy Grant, Marc Broussard and many others.  He has also played on soundtracks and scores for movies and television including “The Lone Ranger”, “The Jersey Boys”, "Degrassi", commercials for SoBe, and produced music for the 2016 People's Choice Awards.

Keith has served on staff at churches like Fellowship Bible Church in Brentwood, TN and Saddleback Church in Lake Forest, CA and is formerly the network manager for Ascension Worship in Nashville.  He and his wife, Tasha, reside in Franklin, TN with their dog Dexter!
