Steve Smyth may have left Australia for the sun-drenched and red wine-soaked streets of Spain, but that doesn't mean Dashville won't coax him back to our backyard at every opportunity.

With his goosebump inducing voice and anthemic excursions of folk and rock, Smyth is sometimes an anachronism, a throwback to the days before the amplifier, when bards would draw a crowd with mesmeric gravity.

Smyth has some stunning new music on the way and you'll get a good long swig of it when he returns to Dashville for The Gum Ball 2020.
