My Fraser Coast - Derek F. Smith

Posted on 16 Jan 2017 by Our Fraser Coast

“I’m a solo, acoustic artist and love the scope of music that allows me to perform. From moving ballads like Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah” to high energy rock songs.

If the listener connects to the emotion of a song through my performance I walk away happy. I love exploring the deeper lyric of a song and conveing that through my delivery.

There are so many amazing musicians on the Fraser Coast. I’m always inspired by the calibre of talent we have here including artists like Frank Benn, Sam Maddison, Tim Earle and so many others who I am privileged to call close friends.”
