Biography

busted_luster2015

Equally inspired by anti folk artists as well as noisy guitar driven bands like Superchunk and Built to Spill, Busted luster is the songwriting project of Greg M Smith. The name literally means “broken glass” but it also is a reflection of life; how chaos and beauty often coexist at the same time.

For about 15 years Greg has been writing and recording songs, 14 years under the “Busted Luster” moniker. He has also previously played guitar in the Metro Detroit bands ¬†Kedder Avant and The Royal Sundays. He currently is playing bass for the Ypsilanti/Ann Arbor based band Horace The Van.

When not involved with music, Greg works as a freelance digital artist.
