With Liz Frencham
Lovethongs CD Launch - love on a dry continent - is a collection of love songs with an Australian flavour. Their settings and language are Australian without labouring the issue and combine heart and wry humour in a way that is uniquely Australian. It is this combination of Frencham's warm vocals with the incisive wit of Smith's writing that defines the Frencham Smith collaboration.
