Smoke-Show is a Maine-based music ensemble writing and covering songs that explore the complexities of human relationships, the mystery of love, and morepractical matters like internet identity theft and getting up in the morning.

Smoke-Show can be almost any combination of singers and instruments, but the core is made up of Anna Rose Shedd and Geoffrey Ives.

Anna is an outstanding female vocalist. She has studied opera and performs with a variety of musical acts in the Portland area. Anna also runs a flatbread pizza company with her boyfriend Creed, called Vermont Small BatchAnna is obsessed with chickens.

Geoffrey plays keyboards. A familiar pianist in the Portland area, he's played with Cuppagroove, The Delta Nights, Bread & Circus, and offers solo-performances. During the day he runs a cloud-basedsoftware company.

Separated in age by decades, Anna and Geoff share similar musical tastes. They love new music, old musicin jazz, blues, or various rock genres. Musical styles may vary, but the show is always entertaining. You just never know what or who may show up.
