The release of Ben Wright Smith’s 2015 singles ‘No One’ & ‘Born Yawning’ propelled the young folk artist to the forefront of the Australian music scene, being nominated for an illustrious APRA award, whilst amassing a staggering 300,000 plus plays on music streaming service Spotify.

Now Ben Wright Smith has teamed up with the uber talented Oscar Dawson from renowned indie rock band HOLY HOLY (production) & Ali Barter (vocals) to deliver us his next single ‘SAND GRABBER’.

“Sand Grabber came from a jam I was having with my buddy Nic. We were playing around with some synthesizers and some 80’s drums machines when I started playing the weird chords in the bridge of the song. I don’t think I’ve ever written something so illogical or in such a backwards way but it sounded cool so I went with it.” – Ben Wright Smith

To celebrate the release of ‘Sand Grabber’ and thanks to the folks at Creative Victoria Ben Wright Smith will be taking the show on the road … to pretty much every corner of the sun burnt country.
