THE ANTHONY SMYTH PROJECT
The Anthony Smyth Project was formed in late 2018. Anthony, born Ireland and grew up in Australia, was approached by established Rapperswil musician Patrick Watanabe with the idea of forming a band to play his repertoire of original songs. Completed with Philipp Stadler behind the drums, the trio was born. They came together with the intention of playing a one off show, however they decided to continue after it became apparent that they had formed something very special. What makes the project special, is the music is not bound by genres. However the song naturally develops in this band format is what it will become. What were once just singer songwriter songs have now taken a complete new life of their own. Country, rock, indie, reggae, folk and funk elements make the project a unique, raw yet emotive style of music.
