Ben Wright Smith reveals huge tour run for new single “Sand Grabber”!

Hold on to your seats – talented singer and songwriter, not to mention utter dreamboat live performer, Ben Wright Smith, is coming to a venue near you over the next few months. Armed with new single “Sand Grabber” and a captivating live show, the APRA Award nominee is out on the road right through into October.

The Melbourne artist linked up Oscar Dawson and Ali Barter on his latest single and is one  heck of a tune to impress fans and newcomers to Wright Smith’s musicality. He says of the song, “”Sand Grabber” came from a jam I was having with my buddy Nic. We were playing around with some synthesisers and some 80’s drum 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.”
