Take a pinch of Patsy Cline, add a dash of James Taylor and a generous dollop of Lucinda Williams and you have Helen Townsend and Shannon Smith Duo. Reminiscent of Welch/Rawlings and Harris/Crowell these two capture your imagination and heart.
Multi-Award WAM nominee and Winner of 2020 WA Country Music Emerging Artist and Single of the Year, Helen’s music is soulful, edgy, her story telling is transfixing.
This compact version of the Helen Townsend & The Wayward Hearts band, the duo engages and entertains the audience with their stories, anecdotes and off the cuff wit, and then woo them with strong original songs and tight weaving harmonies. The music is soulful, edgy and embraces Americana roots. Helens voice is unique, timeless and her stage presence captivating, whilst Shannon’s rich harmonies, onstage presence and guitar work complete the duo.
