"Kim and Scott Collins, The Smoking Flowers, carry on the torch where Gram Parsons and Emmylou Harris left off in their day, delivering beautifully produced, sometimes moody, songs with knockout harmonies...A marriage of song and voice that is uniquely their own." ~ AltCountry.NL Magazine
There are not enough words to describe the intrinsic chemistry Kim and Scott Collins possess.
The duo has discovered what some duos spend their entire careers trying to find: a fascinating marriage between artistic talent and subtle sensuality that pierces the attention of anyone in the same room as them. Kim and Scott have devoted their entire lives to music, and the second their wild feet touch the stage they exude just how tenured they truly are.
Musically speaking, Kim dances between drums, accordion, acoustic guitar, mandolin, harmonica, shimmering tambourine and her own sensual, simmering vocals. Scott plays electric and acoustic guitar, harmonica, and delivers his vocals with the voice of a feisty, gin-battered, heart-on-sleeve, hardscrabble troubadour.
