Brian “RiGHtSiDE” Smith came up as an avid underground-punk fan and a hardcore-rap fan. Although he’s mostly moved on from those genres, his deep love and wonder for music has only grown. CR2 records and Mark Brown provided beats Brian wrote many of his songs too and the results are extraordinary. Brian’s natural gift for hooks and lyrics has developed so much that he has collaborated with new Play It Back artists in different genres, indoctrinating them into his sensitive and attention-to- detail writing process. RiGHtSiDE has also taken to performing. He performed his songs in several venues including the 2019 AYA convention in Fort Worth, Texas where he received a standing ovation from the capacity crowd.
