Event DetailsThe Lyrical (Karl Smith) has become a rising star of the music scene in Brisbane. The Sunshine State capital has always been a hotbed for new talent in a variety of genres and the acoustic/hip-hop/reggae scene is now no exception to that tradition. Following in the footsteps of Ben Harper, Bob Marley, Michael Franti and Xavier Rudd, The Lyrical reflects the ingenuity and musical aptitude it takes to be a great artist. The “unique blend of beat-boxing meshed with folk guitar and socially conscious lyrics” (City News) is fast becoming one of those artists who demand your attention.
“Reminiscent of old school John Butler Trio with the awareness of Black Eyed Peas’ ‘Where Is The Love?’ If you want to feel a little ‘woke’ through music, start here.” – Nkechi Anele, Triple J
“… a strong way of expressing [his] peace-minded words. It’s really refreshing.” – Claire Mooney, Triple J
“With an infectious blend of roots, reggae and hip hop in tow, The Lyrical commands a strong stage presence as he spits his politically charged and socially conscious expressions” – themusic.com.au
