The queer pop artist everyone is talking about, 21 year old singer-songwriter Smashby is taking the world by storm with his catchy bops and infectiously energetic persona.
Smashby has never been one for sitting in the back, from the tender age of 7 years old he was performing anywhere he could. School productions, local pantomimes, amateur performing arts groups. But it wasn't until he was 13 that he truly discovered his love for music and began to idolise all kinds of musicians ranging from Michael Jackson, Freddie Mercury, Prince to Miley Cyrus, Britney Spears and Lady GaGa.
He left school being the kid with the big dreams who no one believed in, he was determined to make something of himself. So he began taking matters into his
own hands. Self writing and releasing sassy

In 2019 the singer's career launched to new heights after releasing a house remix of his single 'Under The Sheets' with G-A-Y's James Bowers, he went on to collaborate with American rapper and RuPaul's Drag Race Allstar Aja on his track 'Independent B**ch".
