CRS PUBLICITY #192:
‘Caterpillar Heart’ is the follow-up to ‘Fire Gazer’ and the second single from Tony Smith’s upcoming album “Stir The Embers” due for release, later this year. The song is about the unwavering strength shown in many forms around our great country; the ability to rise every day and keep going in the face of adversity.
Born and raised on the lower Darling-Murray basin region at Balcatherine station 45 kms from the historic town of Wentworth, Tony has lived and breathed the land through the good times and bad as any farmer does. Working far and wide to try and make ends meet Tony went from mustering buffalo in the Northern Territory to shearing sheep in most states of Australia and more recently the mining industry as an all-rounder, which means he drives anything.
Tony’s songs reflect his life experiences including ‘Shearer’ which was recorded by James Blundell for his 2008 release “Portrait Of A Man”. Tony also enjoyed chart success with ‘Little Desert’ back in 1996. The 18 year gap between music can be explained by some heartbreaking and trying times for Tony and his family – the still-birth of his son Kelsey and his personal cancer battle. In hindsight, Tony believes he should have pushed on with his music career but understandably he wanted to protect his family and music took a back seat.
With his kids, Holly and Levi inheriting the musical gene, the time is right for Tony’s own songs and stories to be heard. Tony is currently in the recording studio with his band, Shoestring, putting the final touches to “Stir The Embers”. They will perform at the Patchewollock Music Festival, Oct 14-16 alongside Kristy Cox and Jerry Salley with plans to launch the new album at the 2017 Tamworth Country Music Festival.
