Biography

Formed in London, Ontario, Canada in the late 60s, Motherlode were best-known for their Top 20 entry, ‘When I Die’. The group comprised saxophonist Steve Kennedy, keyboard player William ‘Smitty’ Smith, guitarist Kenny Marco and drummer Wayne ‘Stoney’ Stone. The band was working at Top 40 clubs when it signed to the Canadian label Revolution Records. Their local soul-orientated single ‘When I Die’, written by Smith and Kennedy, was picked up by Buddah Records and ultimately reached number 18 in the US. An album of the same title made the bottom of the charts but follow-up recordings failed to sell and the group disbanded in the early 70s. Smith formed a new Motherlode group and the remaining three members continued as Dr. Music. Smith and Marco later went on to become successful session musicians.
