About Vegan Smythe
Vegan Smythe is the alter ego of classically trained musician and entertainer Brenton Edgecombe who has won five Australian Entertainment Industry MO Awards, including Variety Entertainer of the Year, as one half of the double-act String Fever which he performs with his wife Jacqui.
Vegan Smythe tells you the funny stuff about veganism. It's a world-first and very unlikely concept. He has been writing and performing songs and comedy about being vegan since 2012 and has been described by fans as hilarious, brilliant, under-rated and 'a crucial soundtrack to life on Earth!’ His music has been featured on blogs, podcasts and radio programs worldwide including ABC’s Radio National. He’s performed at festivals around Australia and as an invited guest at VegFest UK, London.
Brenton and his wife Jacqui are co-performers in String Fever – the world's only comedy, vocal, cello, violin, piano, guitar, typewriter and whip cabaret duo. This unique double-act has managed to pay their bills for the past twenty-one years, and earned them five MO Awards as well as other entertainment industry accolades. Brenton has also shaken hands with Ita Buttrose, been called "a f**king star" by the late Don Lane and appeared as an extra on Neighbours.
