Smith & Jones Bio
Over the past 9 years throughout out the Central West, predominantly on Wiradjuri Country, Smith & Jones have written, recorded and toured their original music, worked as educators, community choir leaders, mentors to young artists, and conducted workshops within the disability sector, and have composed for both theatre and as part of a visual art installation. Their work is centred around the intersection of womanhood and identity within regional areas, with a dedication to artistic leadership, community engagement and creative integrity.
