Soul-fuelled folk artist Danika Smith debuts stunning new single ‘Suit Of Armour’ and announces co-headline Melbourne single launch
Incubating for the past few years, Danika Smith’s rebirth comes with a renewed sense of experimentation on ‘Suit Of Armour’. Her vocals ooze with a matured husk that has as much to say about the artist’s own blossoming career as it does her impeccable choice of studio helping hands which include the likes of mastering engineer Lachlan Carrick and Grammy-nominated producer Nick Herrera. Supported by a truly magnificent line-up of Paul Bender (Hiatus Kaiyote, Swooping Duck) on bass and Maria Moles (Jaala, On Diamond) on drums, Smith’s perfected vocals and avant-garde songwriting carry a weight that can only be buoyed by such strength. The result is a refined display of immense talent and an exciting first taste of so much more to come.
Having graced the stages of Womadelaide, Folk Rhythm & Life, Melbourne International Jazz Festival, Party in the Paddock, Happy Wanderer and more, Danika Smith is a seasoned performer whose live shows is a gift to behold. Gearing up for Strawberry Fields later in the year, join Danika and her band as she launches ‘Suit Of Armour’ with Harmony Byrne at Geddes Lane Ballroom this September
