Smooth Dialects formed in Chattanooga TN, in August 2011 with only two members, Maria (Vocals) & Josh Sable (Guitar) who had a musical vision that needed a full band. The Sables went on their search and soon found a drummer and their bass player Ryan Crabtree.
Smooth Dialects had their first debut in October that year. While the band played shows in cities locally and surrounding areas (i.e. Chattanooga, Nashville, Knoxville, Atlanta, Athens, Lexington, etc.) they still hadn't found the right mix. After going through a series of drummers, they found Devonte Coleman (Drums/Percussion) and soon after found Mr. Lebron Arnwine (Keys/Synth) who joined the Smooth family giving them the all right pieces to the puzzle. It wasn't long after those permanent additions of horns were added with Jovan Quallo and Josh Dunlap.
Maria Sable, daughter of conductor Vakhtang Jordania, is a classically trained pianist who's smooth but powerful voice keeps your soul begging for more. Josh Sable, Smooth Dialects' very own guitar virtuoso, lays down such a soulful palette of tone one couldn't help but dance. Ryan Crabtree, a Chattanooga native and a music major at UTC, combines classical technique with jazz theory to fill the pocket. Lebron Arnwine, gospel pianist extraordinaire puts the smooth in Smooth Dialects with his harmonic genius behind the keys. On the saxophone, Jovan Quallo proves that being a sexy sax man can mean so much more. Devonte Coleman proves that last doesn't mean least proving that drums can be just as lyrical as the rest of the band by laying down a groove so heavy you can't help but feel it all over.
