Kaliis Smith is a writer and musician who does other things also. She went to school in Colorado and Ohio, and now lives in Western Massachusetts. She wrote a book of poetry once, but with luck it is lost to the annals of time. If you are driving through the Pioneer Valley, you can sometimes hear her on 93.9 WRSI: The River, expounding way too much about how much she loves cluster chords. She is also in many bands, and you should come see one of those if they are playing nearby. Bring your earplugs. She has no kids of her own, but will gladly borrow yours if you need a night off.
