‘Quintessentially Australian — unashamedly direct yet modestly understated'– ROLLING STONE
With a penchant for suburban romance, comes nostalgic rocker Allan Smithy, the solo venture of Matt Amery (Tin Sparrow.) In a whirlwind of lush guitar strings, his debut single, ‘The Streets’ was recorded in Melbourne with Tom Iansek (Big Scary, #1 Dads) and is an aural achievement, venturing through blends of folk-rock textures and a pensive blueprint of what’s to come from the Sydney artist.
Mixed by Sydney’s Liam Judson (Cloud Control, The Laurels) and featuring the full-bodied harmonies of Jo Syme (Big Scary), ‘The Streets’ is a creative culmination by the crème de la crème of our homegrown talent. Allan Smithy believes that the ultimate way to come up with new songs is to keep things simple; take the dog for a walk, get a coffee and let the inspiration flow.
