About Saint Rogue

Mike "Smidi" Smith

Co-founder

After a touring career playing jazz and keyboard for contemporary powerhouses like Keith Urban and Ben Folds, “Smidi” began building an illustrious catalogue of work in the studio. His ability to produce and mix is undeniable. With 14 million records sold and multiple number one songs, his credits with acts like Sia, Coldplay, Britney Spears, and Kelly Rowland speak for themselves.

Smidi’s tenured licensing experience has been instrumental to Saint Rogue’s rapid success in TV and film.

Smidi currently resides in Los Angeles, California.

One half of the genre-blending duo The Rigs.
