Wednesday 08 June 7.00pm
After a triumphant return from shows in the Alan Cumming curated, Adelaide Cabaret Festival, plus receiving awards for his debut, multiple film festival selected film, Mental As Everything (featured on SBS and ABC) and, after performing countless shows through regional Victoria amidst the waves of covid disruption in 2021, Melbourne’s Damon Smith, will appear alive and relatively unscathed, at The Ellington on June 8.
Damon and his musical collaborator and great friend, Adam Coad, will tickle the piano and bang drums together along with a very special guest on upright Bass, showcasing music from Smith’s 2022 record, Mighty Are The Falling.
Smith’s performances are punctuated with expert musicianship and razor sharp wit, creating a hugely dynamic stage presence. His virtuosic, new Orleans flavoured piano style, original songs and ‘whiskey as’ voice serve stylistically, as a nod and a wink to the likes of Dr John, Nina Simone and Harry Connick Jnr.
Damon is a multiple award winning singer-songwriter, filmmaker and performer, originally from Perth, now living in Melbourne and has extensive performance history playing at countless theatres, pubs, clubs, dives and festivals across Australia and internationally, and has written and published numerous songs, composed music for ballet, written story-based, music cabaret shows and has released several original albums that defy genres including Blues, Jazz, Alt country, World music, Folk, Rock & Roll and even comedy.’
