The story so far...
Sexsmith is the creative collaboration of brother and sister team, Gin and Andy Sexsmith. Originally from the eastern town of Deseronto, Ontario, music was always their go-to cure for small-town boredom. After pursuing music separately, the two began writing together early 2012. The duo has since moved to Toronto, where they recruited two gents to play bass and drums and put together a four-piece alternative-rock band.
Sexsmith blends sultry vocals, raw, honest lyrics, and catchy hard-rock influenced riffs over bass and drums, with inspiration from Tegan and Sara, Dragonette, Garbage, Amy Winehouse, No Doubt, and Queens of the Stone Age.
Andy’s melodic guitar playing is versatile—going from hooky to heartbreaking, with hints of his heavy metal influences from his days when he lived solely off of Metallica, Megadeth, and Trivium.
Gin’s voice has been described as haunting, passionate, and soulful. With suggestive lyrics and kinked-up vocals she creates a vibe that is both emotionally and sexually charged—think Sarah McLachlan sweetness with a Joan Jett edge.
Sexsmith has played shows at The Rock Pile, The Cameron House, the Cadillac Lounge, Duffy’s Tavern, Graffiti’s, Cherry Cola’s and Rancho Relaxo and are currently booking.
