Lindsay Lou & Band + Special Guests Smith & Jones at The Metropole
Lindsay Lou and her band keep one foot in The Great Lakes State of Michigan with the soul of Motown, and one in Music City, USA: Nashville, TN. They still embody the soul of a good jam or late night pickin' session, and also have honed in on a sound that's entirely their own drawing from soul, blues, folk, jazz and maybe even traces of a techno beat.
As a vocalist, Lindsay falls into an elite category, along with her band of equally gifted musicians playing their own brand of Americana, Lindsay Lou is a not to be missed act.
"This is music that's caught between the pull of the past and the push of the beckoning future, ready to leap forward bursting with new ideas and youthful energy." - Devon Ledger, Hearth Music

Smith and Jones
Smith & Jones are a duo from Bathurst, made up of keyboard player and vocalist Abby Smith, with guitarist and vocalist Sophie Jones. In late 2016 Smith & Jones finished recording their debut album, 'Dark Gives Way', with Michael Carpenter at Love Hz in Sydney. This album's first three singles, 'Baby Blue', 'Small Town Woman' and 'Your Achin' Heart', all went to number one on the internet's Australian Country Radio charts and also charted in Tasmania over four weeks. In October 2018 Smith & Jones will be heading back into the studio to record their second album, which will be released and toured in 2019. Though their roots will always remain in the foundations of country music, their originals have found an undefinable energy of their own. Part classic country ballads, part sweet jazz standards, and often with a tongue firmly planted in their cheek, their beauty is in their harmonic simplicity and lyrical power.
