Smith & Thell
Maria Jane Smith and Victor Thell, collectively known as Smith & Thell, met one another as young teenagers at a local music event in their hometown of Helsingborg in Southern Sweden. Since then, they have spent their time establishing themselves as one of Sweden’s most sought after songwriter and producer combos. They have contributed as writers on songs for major label artists that have combined to be streamed over 250,000,000 times already (in Scandinavia alone).
After deciding to launch their own artist project, Smith & Thell, they submitted their original song “Statue” to be considered for Sweden’s prestigious Denniz Pop Awards. With a panel led by multi-platinum producer Max Martin, the jury selected Smith & Thell as the “New Artist of The Year” which is the same honor that was given to international superstar Tove Lo the year prior.
The band´s debut album has streamed more than 10 million and the lead single ”Statue” has reached Gold status.
