Formed in 2008 by Lead Vocalist, Guitarist, & Songwriter Doug Smith, The Day Street Brothel, featuring Ryan Pugh on Bass Guitar & Al Olner on Drums busted down the doors of the Kingston Hard Rock scene in March of 2009 with their debut album, THE DAY STREET BROTHEL, a CD full of hard rock at its finest, & an essential addition to any music lover’s library. The disc boasts such hits as “Heaven Sent”, which received radio play on Kingston’s K-Rock 105.7 & is featured on U.S compilation CD Auditory Assault on the Bare Metal Records label. Standout songs including “Speechless”, “Untrue”, & “Tales From The Day Street Brothel” have become crowd favorites at many live DSB events. In March 2010, Doug would come in at a very close 2nd in a songwriting contest hosted by Rockstar Supernova front man Lukas Rossi, with the following statement issued by Lukas Rossi himself – “We would like to give Honorable Mention and a special Ontario shout-out to Douglas Smith of Day Street Brothel! Doug’s entry was killer and we were very impressed. We would like to invite Doug and his mates to the next Lukas Rossi show in Ontario as our guests. Check out Doug’s band Day Street Brothel. The band’s sophomore album, THE GOOD GIRL YOU WERE BEFORE, continues in the same formula as THE DAY STREET BROTHEL album, drawing influences from Black Label Society, Metallica, Godsmack, & Kiss, combining Doug’s dynamic vocals with arena ready melodies, gravely lyrics with crowd-pleasing riffs to churn out a record full of fist-pumping rock. With standout tracks like “I Don’t”, “Hell Yeah!”, & “Gonna Make You Mine”, the latter being featured on the 2008 compilation CD “Chill Out” on Quickstar Productions label out of Maryland, don’t be surprised if you find The Day Street Brothel at the top of the rock charts and beyond, with their music appealing to rock fans and non-rock fans alike.
