Smith and Jones

Friday 24 June, 6pm. The Agrestic Grocer. Smith & Jones are a duo made up of keyboard player vocalist Abby Smith and guitarist vocalist Sophie Jones who formed their musical partnership in Bathurst 8 years ago. In this time they have released two albums of original music Dark Gives Way 2017 and Something Worth Learning 2019.


They have worked as educators, community choir leaders, mentors to young artists & conducted workshops within the disability sector. They have also expanded their creative outlets as composers and performers as part of a visual art installation as well as working extensively in theatre. Their most recent production being The Highway of Hearts written by Mary Anne Butler and produced by BMEC Local Stages and Lingua Franca. They not only composed a number of original compositions they also performed alongside Local Thespian Kate Smith.

They have toured extensively and most recently have provided support to Katie Noonan, Sam Buckingham, The Hussy Hicks and Amy Vee. They have appeared at many festivals including Tamworth as well as Inland Sea of Sound where they have also supported many Local Emerging Artists take the stage there.

Two strong voices  destined to be joined musically that create some of the sweetest harmonies coupled with accomplished musicianship have earnt Smith & Jones a special place in the hearts of audiences across the Central West and wherever they play, growing an ever widening fan base.

They recently released their latest single Waiting on My Turn. This was produced with Kris Schubert at The Boatshed studio in O’Connell. This marks a new chapter in the sound and musical journey of Smith & Jones.

Returning to the stage at The Agrestic Grocer this will be a magnificent way to explore the way they have weaved their musical magic from the early days and their journeys in a beloved Corolla along many a highway of lost hearts and other assorted tales. It will also be an opportunity for a peak behind the curtain of what they are cooking up for their new album tentatively titled “My Heart is Always Taking Me”
