About Us

Our Story


The Annapolis based Fuses acoustic duo/trio deliver a fusion of tunes.  Bobby Smiley, guitar player/ vocals, has been playing guitar for years.  A few bands Bobby has played with are Night Wind, Crush, Sparky's Bone and many others over the years.

We were recently a trio, but our bass player, Jim Cullen, moved to Hawaii.  Poor guy!  We have been fortunate to have a percussionist fill in from time to time.  Duane Ferguson plays percussion when he's not playing drums for DeadEyeStare.

Lead vocals, Diane Compton, "I'm truly blessed to work with gifted and dedicated musicians."

What Inspires Us


Despite sharing many of the same interests and pastimes, we all are inspired by different types of music.  We all have a love for rock, alternative, blues and country music.

Our Influences


Jim Croce, Kid Rock, Tracy Chapman, Matt Nathanson, Bon Jovi, Bad Company, Gavin Degraw, Jon Pardi, The Wreckers, John Mellencamp, Edwin McCain, The Beatles, Parmalee, Pink, John Mayer, Keith Urban and many more.
