Meet the FOUNDER

Professional vocalist and voice teacher, Louise Smith founded Fifth Avenue in 2016. Besides her vocal studio work, she is also the band's manager.

Currently based in Brisbane, Australia, Louise has dual-citizenship with both a New Zealand and an Irish passport and she has personally embarked on several cruises around the South Pacific. Her extensive experience makes her an ideal candidate for performing as a lounge singer, or fronting / co-fronting an established party band. Louise holds a post-graduate degree specialising in voice from the Queensland Conservatorium of Music, and is a qualified teacher. She is the lead vocalist for the popular funk-band “Fifth Avenue” and her expertise has seen her perform at a number of prestigious venues across Australia, among them are the Hilton Hotel, the Crown Casino in Melbourne, and the Brisbane Entertainment Centre. Recent performances: - Sister Blues for “The Soul Men” Blues Brothers Tribute - Backing Vocals for “Raise Your Glass” Pink Tribute - Regular fill-in vocalist for local cover-bands including: ‘A Noble Few’ / ’Paradigm’ / ’Rush Hour’ / ’Wasabi’
