smythy is the stage name of Indie Pop Artist Andrew Smyth. Hailing from Tipperary and currently based in Dublin, smythy is taking on the the Irish music scene with his uniquely pop inspired indie sound.
Having been involved with various musical projects over his 26 years, Andrew Smyth has found the solo project of smythy to be the perfect environment to allow him to thrive musically.
Taking inspiration from artists such as Her’s, Dayglow, Beach House, Alice Phoebe Lou and Arctic Monkeys, smythy crafts tunes that have a lo-fi indie feel bursting at the seams with catchy pop melodies that will have listeners singing along and eager to hear more.
smythy spent 2021 writing new material and perfecting his sound both live and in studio. In December of 2021 the Tipperary musician began the recording process for a project which released in September 2022. Working alongside acclaimed producer and musician Rory Ryan, smythy has created three tracks which combine pop melodies with synth rock elements. These tracks have gained over 60,000 streams on Spotify as of March 2023.
smythy and his band of six have spent the past few years cultivating a powerful live sound. They have supported well known Irish artists including Big Sleep, Rowan, Dylan Flynn and the Dead Poets, Trophy Wife and Cormac Looby in iconic Irish venues such as Whelan’s, Róisin Dubh and The Soundhouse. In December 2022 smythy and his band took to the stage in Whelan's for their first headline gig where they played to a sold out crowd.
