Been Thinkin' About You

Ben Wright Smith
Following
 up
 one
 year 
after 
the
 release 
of 
his
 acoustic 
EP 
“Benny
 ‘The
Kid' & 
Other Moonlight
 Ballads ”
Ben 
Wright 
Smith’s 
debut
 album 
‘Autumn 
Safari’ 
features 
a
 broad
 spectrum
 of 
alternative 
folk
 rock 
music.
 Drawing
 on 
influences
 from
 Bob
 Dylan,
 Paul
 Kelly,
 Tom 
Waits
 and
 Neil
 Young 
the 
album
 is
 diverse
 in 
style 
and 
is
 centered
 by
 wistful
 lyrics 
and 
powerful
 melodies.

 The
 album
 ventures
 through
 various 
musical
 landscapes.
 The 
seamless
 transition
 between
 the 
woozy
 and
 haunting
 ‘Bad 
Glove’ 
and
 ‘Party 
On
 The
 Hill’ 
to 
the 
up‐beat 
Bass‐driven
 ‘Independence
 Day’ 
and
 ‘Magic 
Bean’ 
demonstrate
 a 
band 
who
 are
 as 
versatile
 as
 they 
are 
original.

 The 
debut 
single
 ‘Been 
Thinkin
 About 
You’ 
has 
received 
airplay 
all 
over 
the 
globe 
as 
well
 as 
great 
praise 
from 
print 
and 
online
 publications
 alike.

 Unpaved
 described 
it
 as
 a
 ‘…a
 killer
 country­ pop 
tune’,
Sound of
 Oz
 said
‘I’ve
 fallen
 hard
 for
[This]
romantic
 single’, 
and
 Papermash
 music
 said
 ‘Ben 
Wright 
Smith
 sings
 soulfully
 and
 cheerfully
 in
 this
 catchy
 alt
 country 
track’. 

It 
was
 also
 featured
 in 
Amrap’s
 Air It
 Charts 
for
 the 
‘Top
 Ten
 Tracks
 Most
 Ordered
 For
 Airplay’.

 A
 large 
part
 of
 the
 bands
 appeal
 has
 been 
accredited 
to
 their 
eclectic
 live 
show, 
which
 features 
multi‐instrumental 
jams 
and 
an 
endless 
circulation
 of 
material 
new 
and 
old.
‘Armed 
with 
the 
expertise 
and 
musical 
prowess
 of 
his 
co­-instrumentalists,
 it’s 
quite 
clear
 from 
the 
get ­go
 that 
Ben 
Wright 
Smith
 utilizes
 each
 apparatus 
to 
compose
 a
 raw,
 folk
 infused
 set’.
 Warrick 
Goodman 
from 
Beat
 Magazine
 described
 one
 show
 "These 
lads
 can
 play... shaggy 
haired
 smith
 has 
a
 raspy 
character 
in 
his 
voice
 that 
echoes 
Bob
 Dylan
 at 
his
 best.."’
 and
 independent
 blog
 music
 and
 culture 
blog 
Beaute 
De
 La
 Muse 
said 
‘When
 you
 are
 watching
 a 
set, 
it
 is
 almost 
as
 as 
though
 you
 are 
listening
 to 
one
 long
 mythical
 tale,
 as
 he
 gives
 such
 life
 to
 the
 characters 
in
 his 
songs... Lyrics 
melodies 
compliment
 each
other
 harmoniously,
 producing
 vastly
 vivid
 imagery
 for
 his
 audience…’.
 Now
 in 
preparation 
for 
a
 second 
release, 
Ben
 Wright
 Smith
 &
 The 
Birthday
 Girls 
promise
 to
 be
 one 
of 
the 
most
 interesting 
and
 dynamic 
bands 
emerging 
from 
the 
Melbourne 
Rock
 n’ 
Roll 
Scene.
