Bio

"With an infectious blend of roots, reggae and hip hop in tow, The Lyrical commands a strong stage presence as he spits his politically charged and socially conscious expressions" - themusic.com.au

Winner “People’s Choice Award,” Byron Bay Bluesfest Busking Comp 2010, 2011.

The Lyrical (Karl Smith) has become a rising star of the music scene in Brisbane. The Sunshine State capital has always been a hotbed for new talent in a variety of genres and the acoustic/hip-hop/reggae scene is now no exception to that tradition. Following in the footsteps of Ben Harper, Bob Marley, Michael Franti and Xavier Rudd, The Lyrical reflects the ingenuity and musical aptitude it takes to be a great artist. The "Unique blend of beat-boxing meshed with folk guitar and socially conscious lyrics - City News" is fast becoming one of those artists who demand your attention.

The Lyrical has toured Australia, released an EP (If I Was Earth) and a very well received self-titled album, "The Lyrical" to critical acclaim. He has opened for Everlast, Pete Murray and Dallas Frasca, shared the stage and played with the likes of Leon Mobley of The Innocent Criminals, Toni Childs, Evil Eddie of Butterfingers and Jac Stone, rocked festivals such as Bluesfest, Big Day Out, Red Deer Festival, Caloundra Music Festival, Island Vibes Festival, Festival Of The Sun, Valley Fiesta & Caxton Seafood Festival. The Lyrical has also had great radio and online success hitting No.1 five times on Triple J's Unearthed and No.3 WORLDWIDE on ReverbNation.com in an online poll for Breakthrough Artist 2011.
