Frencham Smith


This unique collaboration between honey-voiced bassist Liz Frencham and internationally acclaimed songwriter Fred Smith presents finely crafted songs full of heart, truth and humour.

Acclaimed performances at festivals across the country prove the power of great songs sung well.

"As good as contemporary singer/songwriter folk music gets in Australia. Smith is a superb songwriter with a wry sense of humour and a wonderful eye for the idiosyncrasies of modern life and Frencham has a voice with all the appeal, emotional honesty and clarity of someone like Shawn Colvin or Mary Chapin Carpenter". Yes, really, she is that good. There is no other folk duo in Australia which even comes close to this magical combination."…Bruce Elder, Sydney Morning Herald

Liz Frencham is best known through her work on bass and vocals with the Sydney trio Jigzag. Her assured touch on the double bass brings to the duo real warmth and solidity. Fred‟s under-stated guitar-picking and vocals are the perfect foil for Liz Frenchams warm and generous style.

"The pair spark off each other and imbue the songs with an enthusiasm that bubbles along on the surface of the melodies" Warwick McFadyen, the Age
