Smith & Jones


Smith & Jones are a duo from Bathurst, made up of keyboard player and vocalist Abby Smith, with guitarist, harmonica player and vocalist Sophie Jones. In late 2016 Smith & Jones finished recording their debut album, ‘Dark Gives Way’, with Michael Carpenter at Love Hz in Sydney. Their debut single, ‘Baby Blue’ and accompanying film clip went to number one on the Australian Country Radio Charts in May and also charted in Tasmania over four weeks.

During their time together they have played countless shows, such as supporting Dragon and The Pigs at the Crooked Mountain Festival in the Warrumbungle National Park and as the local support act for Troy Cassar-Daley in Bathurst. In April 2017 they supported James Reyne and Boom Crash Opera as part of Autumnfest at the Mayfield Gardens and have also played shows with the likes of Archie Roach, Kate Miller-Heidke, Tex Perkins and The Black Sorrows with Vika & Linda Bull. In 2015 Abby and Sophie were both nominated for Young Achievers of the Year for their work with community choirs and young people. Though their roots will always remain in the foundations of country music, their originals have found an undefinable energy of their own.

“The songs are loaded with melodies that will get deep inside your head. They slip effortlessly between styles from country, soul, and blues, whilst the songs themes deal with love, loss, murder, God and what life in the modern world can be like for a lady, which reveal a maturity and perspectives on life that are beyond the young age of the writer.” – Pat Coomey
