America and travelling the Australian festival circuit. He has released about 10 CDs, mostly solo but also collaborations with Liz Frencham and the Spooky Men's Chorale.
Fred cut his teeth performing comic and satirical ballads in bars and festivals in the late 90s.
Smith has worked in peace monitoring operations in Bougainville, was Australia's first diplomat in southern Afghanistan and worked in the Solomon Islands.
Smith has spent three years touring throughout the US and Canada while working in Washington DC and is a regular on the Australian festival and touring circuit.
These experiences have resulted in albums including the award-winning Bagarap Empires and Dust of Uruzgan and the newly-released Warries.
Warries is something of a retrospective, documenting a prolific phase in the artist’s life, but also a remarkable period in which Australian soldiers and civilians deployed into conflict zones in the Pacific and Central Asia as warriors and peacemakers.
Warries is also a sequel to his acclaimed Dust of Uruzgan album.
