Single release: ‘Baby Blue’ by Smith & Jones

Posted by

Sophie Jones (guitar, harmonica, vocals) from Tamworth and Abby Smith (keyboards, vocals) from Bathurst, NSW have been playing as Smith & Jones since 2013 and recently released their debut album, Dark Gives Way. From that album comes the single ‘Baby Blue’, a song of a woman on the run.

Smith and Jones have beautifully complementary voices that, combined, give more power to the song than they might have alone, especially for a cautionary tale like this one. And although they have been described as alt country, like many performers who are placed in that genre I tend to hear more actual country influence than anything too alt. Smith and Jones are Australian country music artists, and they sound like it, and the country music audience will recognise them as their own.
