MEN IN SUITS
Men In Suits are a bunch of blokes who sing like blokes who can sing, together. They specialise in unexpected performances at inconvenient times in unimaginable places. They are extremely busy men as you can imagine, so you are indeed very lucky that they have made time for this appearance amongst their busy and important schedule.
In 2008, Sydney Morning Herald critic Bruce Elder wrote “It is about time Australia caught up with Fred Smith. This remarkable singer-songwriter – who at various times reveals influences that range from Paul Kelly via Lou Reed to Loudon Wainwright III to Leonard Cohen – keeps releasing amazingly accomplished albums.”Fred Smith has been a favourite on the Australian festival circuit for years, much loved for his gentle wit, gift for story and melody, and sublime collaborations with Liz Frencham and The Spooky Men’s Chorale. Now the rest of Australia is catching up with Fred Smith. He was the subject of a recent Australian Story feature about his work in Afghanistan and on peace keeping operations in the war-torn islands of the South Pacific. The title track from his acclaimed album, Dust of Uruzgan, has been covered by country music star Lee Kernaghan.
Fred recently wrote a book, The Dust of Uruzgan, published by Allen and Unwin and available in all good bookstores. Now he has popped out a new double album called Great, available through this site and MGM distribution from October 2017.
