MICHELLE SMITH - AUSTRALIA'S ONLY JAZZ HARPIST

MICHELLE SMITH - AUSTRALIA'S ONLY JAZZ HARPIST

MICHELLE SMITH'S VERSATILITY WITH HER 47 STRING HARP HAS MADE HER A UNIQUE PERFORMER, WOWING AUDIENCES IN AUSTRALIA AND THE USA WITH HER ORIGINAL SOLO HARP PERFORMANCES.

Michelle Smith gradually made her way to the harp after years of piano, guitar and cello playing, writing original scores for independent films and garnering a WASA nomination for "Best original Score" in the process.

Michelle has received critical acclaim for her version of Jimi Hendrix's "Red House". She has also played with electric string quartets, Jazz Trio's and national circus troupes.

After studying in the US Michelle was mentored by and performed with Deborah Henson-Conant, a Grammy Award nominated jazz harpist and composer.

For the full Jazz experience, The Jazz Harp Trio can also be booked. With double bass, sax and Harp, this trio is second to none. See Michelle Smith Jazz Harp Trio page for details.
