The performing career of Michael C. Smith (Michael Smith) commenced in the late 1970's and embraced Acting in Theatre, Television, Film. Musicals, Opera, the Concert Platform, Avant Guard Contemporary Music Theatre and the development of new Australian Work.
In the mid 1990's, Michael C. Smith (Michael Smith) began writing and performing songs, primarily about place. This led to a comprehensive exploration of the Contemporary Australian Singing Voice in an attempt to create a bridge from the European Classical Tradition to the Popular Song. He has interacted with artists from most of the commercial Musical Theatre productions on the Australian circuit since the mid 1990's as Vocal Coach and Mentor.
His studio, The Contemporary Singing Studio evokes the Atelier studios of artists like Rembrant, Monet and Whitleley. It is a place where ideas are provoked and shared. The internal sensations of singing are explored through the use of visual imagery and a liberal interpretation of classical technique.
He is currently writing SUTRAS FOR THE SINGER and writing and recording ARIAS FROM THE EASTERN SUBURBS.
In 2014 he began exhibiting his paintings and has been rejected.
