Nashville musicians and first time parents, Amy and Dillon Smith are in the middle of a journey to adopt a child from Asia. They have chosen to adopt after 11 years of happy marriage and found their hearts growing internationally. Not only are they musicians, but they are also coffee connoisseurs and are thrilled to have their own special blend of beans to help raise funds for their future “mini-Smith”.
Dillon is an incredible guitarist, bassist, violinist and composer and on top of that – a coffee professional! He works for one of the city’s most treasured shops, Dose Cafe. Amy is a keyboardist and songwriter but is known more than anything for her ability to sing and belt in an impressive wide range. When Amy isn’t blowing minds with her powerful and memorable vocals, she loves to drink the coffee Dillon makes for her – iced almond milk lattes all the way!
The couple met in college while studying the recording program at MTSU. They quickly formed a tight bond and starting playing in bands together. They got married in 2007 and had quite the rock n roll wedding with lots of fellow musicians by their side. They’ve spent about a decade touring the States, Australia and Canada with their most successful project – a 9 piece theatrical synth rock band.
Now they are ready for life’s next big adventure and fell in love with adoption after reading and watching other families’ stories and spending some time really focusing on what they felt was important to them. Having a family of their own has always been a dream of theirs and they want more than anything to give a home to a child who needs one. Growing their family through adoption means the world to them and they cannot wait to be parents!
