In May of 2007, Canadian Singer Songwriter Michael LeClerc started the band, “Smooth Bill” who was invited to open for the multiple Juno Award winning and Canadian Music Hall of Fame band, "The Tragically Hip" in the Cayman Islands, performing for 3,000 enthusiastic fans. "Smooth Bill" began circulating radio stations online and in the Cayman Islands. Michael decided to quit all other distractions and focus solely on his music career. In September of 2010, Michael recorded his solo EP at 4th Street Recording Studio, Santa Monica, CA produced by Platinum Producer, Jim Wirt (Incubus, Fiona Apple, Live, Hoobastank) and self released it in the Spring of 2011. It didn’t take long for the single "Radio" to get airplay on many stations throughout the US, Cayman Islands, and Canada. In the summer of 2011, LeClerc and well known Cayman Lead Guitarist Jonathan Ebanks toured the EP for 3 months throughout California. LeClerc has since moved to California and bought a van where he slept for many months while he concentrated on his career.
