New Year, New Look, New Projects


Happy 2017 to all you Roamin’ Jasmine fans out there! In addition to the lovely new photos we got taken by the amazing Avery White ( we’ve got a couple of projects in the works for this year:


We’ve just finished recording 6 new songs in collaboration with our friend, Australian singer and songwriter Lachlan Bryan (the guy with the acoustic guitar in the photo!). (

Bandleader Taylor Smith and Lachlan worked together to adapt some of Lachlan’s more country/Americana style tunes to The Roamin’ Jasmine’s New Orleans Blues and Jazz sound with some exciting results. There are plans in the works for a Fall 2017 Roamin’ Jasmine Australian tour with Lachlan, as well as some collaborative performances this summer in the UK to support the release of the recordings. Stay tuned for more on that!
