Living Body is the new project from Leeds-based Chicagoan Jeff T. Smith (f.k.a. Juffage) featuring longtime collaborators Tom Evans (Vessels), and Katie Harkin (Sky Larkin, Wild Beasts, Sleater-Kinney, Flock of Dimes).
Since their formation in 2016, the group have toured extensively throughout the United Kingdom and North America, including performances at SXSW, Canadian Music Week, Tramlines, Sŵn, and Carefully Planned festivals, with live sessions for BreakThru Radio and Daytrotter. Their debut LP, 'Body Is Working', was received favourably by BrooklynVegan, Stereogum, Exclaim!, and Drowned in Sound, among others.
Expanding on the need for music to bring joy into the lives of others, and Smith’s fascination with the contortion of the pop song into a uniquely imaginative and immediate form, Living Body aims to exist in a world of skin and information overload in 2017. This US tour will be a solo tour by Jeff T. Smith, exploring his songwriting at it's most honest and direct.
