Be Part of the Smyth Family
After being involved in an incident in October that left him with a broken jaw, Steve Smyth is now fighting fit!
Recovering so well in fact that he’s picked back up on the rescheduled dates he was forced to drop and heading to town for a show at the Northern.
After selling out shows on the first run of his Exits tour dates in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane, receiving the Feature Album slot at Double J, Album Of The Week from ABC Darwin and Newcastle, and singles Shake It and Written Or Spoken being well received at community radio and Double J, Steve and band picked back up touring Exits by covering major cities and regional towns across this fine land.
From the streets of Barcelona to touring alongside the likes of The Killers, Angus and Julia Stone, Lanie Lane and Kim Churchill, Smyth has proven time and time again to be devastating in the live setting.
A voice churned up in bourbon-soaked Louisiana gravel that soars to the heavens at times with its sweetness.
After experiencing Steve Smyth, it’s tempting to compare him with some of the great vocalists of the past few decades.
Hotel Great Northern this Saturday.

Mad for the Professor
Heavy Stereo and Ku Promotions are pleased to announce that owing to strong ticket sales we have changed to venue from Coorabell to Durrumbul Hall for the upcoming show of The Mad Professor.
The party also now starts at 6pm, which means more music, more artists, more time to eat tasty Jamaican fare and really soak up the carnival vibes! This will be a live dub show. Mad Professor brings studio master tapes and remixes these live on stage using an analog mixing console and hardware effects.
This is truly a unique experience!
