At 24 years of age Melbourne’s Ben Wright Smith is a folk rock musician with an impressive number of musical accomplishments under his young belt. His 2011 debut album ‘Autumn Safari’ drew critical praise from all corners of the globe online and was even named 88.3 Southern FM‘s Album of The Year.
“Shaggy haired Smith has a raspy character in his voice that echoes Bob Dylan at his best…” – Beat Magazine
An upshot of crafting a record that sparked the imagination of the international folk fraternity was that it saw Wright Smith travel the world, writing and performing everywhere from Melbourne to Los Angeles, New York to Nashville where he graced stages alongside an enviable list of musical compatriots including Alabama Shakes and Justin Townes Earle.
In 2013, Ben Wright Smith returns with the first single from his forthcoming sophomore record (due for release in early 2014).
‘Living The Good Life Is Easy’ was co-produced with fellow Melbournian Oscar Dawson (Dukes Of Windsor, Ali Barter) and comes packaged with a visually stunning music video shot on location in beautiful Blairgowrie, Victoria by Charlie Ford & Josh McKie (of Vance Joy and Courtney Barnett video clip acclaim.)
