THEBACHA/FORT SMITH
The Fort Smith rock band State of the Art now has something in common with AC/DC, The Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin, Iron Maiden, Bob Marley and the Wailers, Foreigner, and an amazing array of even more music stars.

The connection is Britain’s Tony Platt, a famed engineer/producer who has seemingly worked with almost everyone in a career stretching back more than 40 years.

Platt is producing State of the Art’s new album, expected this summer.

From March 8-14, he was doing pre-production with the band at their rehearsal space in Fort Smith, the second time he has met them in person after first seeing them play live in Yellowknife in October.

Platt said coming to Fort Smith has given him a completely different perspective on the band, and he is suggesting that some of their best material will be about their background, their ethnic upbringing and the traditions around their home community.
