The late great Herb “Smoky” Dawson has left us with some beautiful songs and poems. He was prolific till the day he died writing evocative words and music to express his love of country and of life.
A gentle, sweet and creative man – Smoky Dawson’s works live on with his last album "Homestead Of My Dreams" released on the ORiGiN label when he was in his 80’s.
In his memory Philip Walker and Philip Mortlock have helped establish the Smoky Dawson Foundation to keep his legacy going and to help nurture young Australian talent.
In 2021, Smoky's autobiography, SMOKY DAWSON - A LIFE was updated and re-released by IMPRiNT INPRiNT (ORiGiN's book publishing company).
