Melbourne’s Lehmann B. Smith returns with his new record Poplar Music. To celebrate the record, he will be playing a Tote residency every Sunday this June. Tour dates and details below!
Finding his greatest success as a sideman for bands like Totally Mild and Kes Band, Smith has often been described as a musician’s musician, an undiscovered talent. He is a prodigious songwriter, laboriously notating album after album of unreleased material and storing these away in his home studio for a rainy day.
This is his seventh album – written, arranged, recorded and played almost entirely by himself at this studio (reportedly somewhere in Ascot Vale). Lehmann B. Smith is a mystery, an enigma, something of a genius; his music will resonate in your head for days, and should you be lucky enough to witness a live performance – save that story for your children.
