JD’s career extends to co-writing songs with some of Australia’s best songwriters & producers; Tania Doko (Bachelor Girl), Cameron McGlinchy (Rogue Traders), Sean Carey (Thirsty Merc), Bec Caruana (BJ Caruana) & touring and supporting acts such as The Whitlams, Pete Murray and Delta Goodrem.
He has performed in stage musicals throughout Australia, including Wicked and Dirty Dancing and been a longtime member of the international vocal supergroup The Ten Tenors.
“It takes great self-belief, honesty, hard work and time to record and produce an album and I’ll be forever grateful to everyone who have supported me along the journey. When I started writing the original songs on this album it was right in the midst of lockdowns, border closures, no live concert or singing work, gig cancellations and the arrival of a new baby boy!” – JD Smith.
