Artist: James d. Smith
In short: All class
Review: Peter Batson
WICKED star and former Albury singer-songwriter, James d. Smith was one of the stars of last night’s Albury Carols by Candlelight performing his version of Over the Rainbow. Smith was virtually unknown until he filled the shoes of Anthony Callea in 2008 performing alongside Bert Newton and Rob Mills in the smash hit musical Wicked.
This impressive EP showcases Smith’s fine but powerful voice and burgeoning song-writing skills, demonstrated in all seven of the EP’s all-original songs including the upbeat I Know It’s You and Foundation of Love. The beautiful Breakdown Any Door and Arms that Hold highlight Smith’s subtlety in performance and his skill at crafting high quality songs.
