Hollie Smith and The Committee

Soulful Hollie Smith is one of NZ's most iconic musicians. She takes to the Nelson Centre of Musical Arts stage this August with The Committee, an Auckland based collective made up of some of the most skilled and experienced musicians in New Zealand including New York based bassist Mat Fieldes, drummer Stephen Thomas, saxophonist Cameron Allen and guitarist Dixon Nacey.

Together these talented musicians bring their different influences and writing styles to cover styles from more traditional jazz to the contemporary music of today.

Hollie Smith is one of New Zealand's most predominant & iconic musicians. After working with numerous bands including Trinity Roots, Fat Freddy's Drop and Detroit dance legend Recloose, she was approached by NZ songwriting royalty Don McGlashan to perform on a movie soundtrack single 'Bathe in The River' that topped the New Zealand singles charts and became one of the biggest and iconic singles in New Zealand history.

She is a prolific hardworking singer/songwriter and performer, and has always maintained a highly respected reputation of creating music with the upmost integrity & passion, not to mention her incredible live performances and powerhouse vocals.
