In a phrase: songs worth writing by musicians worth hearing.
Westminster is the stage name for various projects developed by Sydney-based singer-songwriter Jeremy Smith.
Variously compared with the music of Paul Simon, Glen Hansard and Hazier, Westminster’s unique brand of alternative folk draws on a range of influences across the musical spectrum. Launched in 2018, Westminster built on the sum of its parts, with its collaborators having been involved in various musical projects for more than a decade. Through brutally raw lyrics delivered across hypnotic rhythms and haunting melodies, Westminster has captivated audiences at numerous folk festivals and Sydney venues.
