Global Musicians Fish Pond was conceived in April 2011; the vision was to bring musicians and music listeners from all over the world together in one place, to create a community with a passion and a heart for music. The vision has become a reality, and here you see the result; a caring family of like-minded individuals, who together truly can, and will, change the world.
If you are a musician, join our family and meet artists around the world, collaborate, share, and grow; “we take from this life what we give into it”.
If you are a music fan, access a diverse catalog of sounds, enjoy listening for free, and expand your collection by buying from your favorite family members.
If you are a company servicing musicians, create a profile on our family site to share with musicians all over the world.
David Mark Smith – CEO and Founder
A Brit musician now based on the East Coast USA, David is one half of the songwriting team behind the band My Lucky Fish. Working in the airline industry for 20 years, his business experience spans project management, accounting, finance, economics, business development, strategy, and marketing. He has been a musician for 30 years, and a songwriter for 15; he has a love for pop/punk, and lists influences from classical music, to pop, to metal.
Writing, recording, and distributing the band’s debut album, released in January 2013, was a rite of passage and an important milestone for him in learning the steps and ‘opportunities’ which musicians face to be heard in todays complex marketplace. He still performs on the East Coast of the USA, just for the buzz of the stage. His favorite band is Blink 182.
Spawning the Fish Pond in April 2011, David has a heart for family, and for the development and friendship of driven musicians with a true passion for being heard and understood.
